Letting it Go

So, here's why I haven't posted in a few days.  For whatever reason, I can't get a video of Logan to upload that I wanted to share with you all.  And every time I come to write about something else and forget the stupid video, I can't.  Because of that, I just haven't posted anything.  Instead I have been writing my complaints and struggles on Google Help hoping that a 'Blogger' techie can save me from myself.   So far, no help.  I think I just need to let it go.

Is anyone else like me?  Do you have a hard time letting things go?

Take arguments with Chris.  I want to talk about them to death.  And then some.  Ever heard of beating a dead horse?  Yea.  I not only beat them...I shoot em and then drag em to their grave.  Poor horse.  Clearly letting things go is not my strong suit.

I need to remember that there is not always a perfect outcome.
I need to remember that sometimes things are just not worth fighting about.
I need to remember that time really does help make a big issue seem smaller.
I need to remember that "winning" an argument doesn't always feel like I think it will.
I need to remember that "losing" an argument always feels worse.
I need to remember that we won't always see each other's side.
I need to remember that there is another side.
I need to remember that while expressing my feelings is good, spending hours on them is bad.  Very bad.

I need to remember these things at 5:00am because starting off angry, makes for a very long day.

Much like blogging (okay, really nothing like blogging), marriage is hard work.  It's rewarding and fulfilling and mostly fun....but it's hard.

And at the end of the day when you just want your f-ing video to load (because Logan is sooooo dang cute) sometimes you I just have to let it go.

Try uploading to You Tube and then taking the HTML code and adding it to your blog that way. Wayyyyy easier than doing it through Blogger. I gave up on Blogger a long time ago. If you want for real step-by-step email me and I'll do it myself and then copy how I did it for you....leslie.stiff@gmail.com

My mothers advice to me when I was getting married was to pick your battles wisely. In a marriage, some arguments are just not worth having, so it better be something very important to bring it up. Like you, Jake and I had decided that it is a very bad idea to talk at night or early in the morning because we are both tired and it is going to end in a fight so it is better not to talk at all. After 7 1/2 years of marriage, we are still trying to figure it all out.

Sorry about the video thing, that is pretty annoying!
