Is there a Vulcan in the house?
My mind is swirling – I mean even I am agog with all the bazillion things racing through my head. Some of them are worth sharing – others simply need to be swept out my ears or something.
When my brain starts whipping all these thoughts around, I find I have a hard time communicating (clearly, at any rate) the things that are needful in that mass of information. AND the person I need most to communicate with right now is Jeff and he, being of alien species from me (not a bad thing) simply doesn’t understand a female brain dump. (PLEASE – does someone else…ANYONE else understand/equate with what I’m talking about?)
I want to pause here and say, I LOVE the differences between my alien husband and myself. I do, I do, I do. I love how his hairy arm feels on mine. I love that his big, calloused hands can swallow mine up. I love when he nuzzles his fuzzy mustache in my neck. I love how I can stand in front of him and his frame is taller than mine so I just fit under his chin. (Ok, so I fit significantly under his chin, being a full 8″ shorter than he is.) I do love this alien creature of mine. BUT….when it comes to communicating, I’m thinking a mind meld is the only option.
A week from Monday we’re going to embark on a challenge to encourage our husbands for the next 30 days. This task is daunting to me, to say the least. First of all, Jeff and I have been lax (lazy? just plain careless? preoccupied? not sure which and possibly all) and have allowed our relationship to get mushy and out of shape. Secondly, there are things I say to him that I really (REALLY) do think are encouraging. It would seem though, that we’re both ESL students, as we don’t seem to hear me saying the same thing. With those two factors (and a few others, if I could find them in the swirling vortex formerly known as my brain) I find I’m not embracing this challenge as I should be.
SO, please – is there a Vulcan in the house??? I’m REALLY needing to learn how to do this mind meld thing. And…uh, if possible, could you mind meld the instructions directly into my head too? I’m not sure I’ll find it otherwise. Besides, I think the mess in my brain might make even you emotional.
(Quick edit: Please know I am NOT bashing Jeff or his methods of communication. I know that Father, Himself, has wired us differently. Besides, Jeff is sitting right here and I read this to him…he is laughing at me. I think he heard this in Swahili or something, but hey – at least we’re not fighting!) 😉 😆
