A few months back, I wrote a post where I talked about the things that Scott & I argue about. It was a huge hit. I think people like being "flies on the wall" and finding out the dramarama that goes on!!
Anyway- why am I writing this post again? Because, things change...including, what we argue about!
Now that Scott has started school, I only get to see him on Saturdays and Sundays. You would think that we don't really argue as much now that I only see him 2 days out of the week. Hahaha, you would be wrong! Honestly, I feel like we actually argue more when we don't see each other as often. Weird, I know. But it's so true.
We argue about when & how often we talk.
This is a funny one. It used to frustrate me. But, now it just makes me laugh. I like talking to Scott whenever I can. Whether it's on his lunch break... or when he's driving to school... or when he's eating dinner before school. But, Scott is not a phone person. He hates calling people. He'd rather text. I am the opposite. I'd rather just call him. I used to call him and leave voicemails about the events of my day... or perhaps I'd ask him to call me back... and when I would ask him if he got my voicemail, he'd say, "no". One time, I actually checked his phone, and he had 7 new voicemails. A few from me, and more from several other people. He is just not a phone person. I'm lucky if I talk to him at all during the week!
We argue about how to spend our (very little) time together.
I am so guilty of always telling him that I miss him. I am also guilty of pleading with him to skip school one night just to be with me. This was especially true during the very first month of him going back to school. Of course, those tricks never worked because Scott absolutely loves going to school.
But, when we do get time together on the weekends, we always argue about how to spend that time. Scott would rather plop his butt down on the couch and watch Netflix, where I would much rather go for a walk and talk to him about his school (and whatever else he wants to talk about).
During Scott's first month back at school, we spent almost every weekend visiting family for birthday parties, anniversaries, or just to visit. I was always the one who wanted to visit our family on the weekends, so I always looked forward to that. But, as soon as he started school... I just wanted Scott all to myself on the weekends that I had with him. So, of course, we would argue about when to see our family and when to spend time with just each other.
We argue about how to spend our money.
All couples do this. But, I feel like we do it way more now.
I manage our money, so this is usually an argument that I actually win. I don't win very many! Scott hates when I buy new clothes, or new shoes. BUT- if it were up to him, we would be going out to eat for every single meal on the weekends.
I, on the other hand, enjoy eating at home and saving our money. Eating out all the time can get very expensive! We have even cut down on our "Friday night pizza nights" which Scott hates. But, we are paying off his school loans already and we need to penny pinch wherever we can.
See, I told ya I usually win those battles!
Scott wonders why I write posts like these. "Why would you want to look back and remember what we argued about?"
I just think it will be so funny to look back on this in five years and think... wow... we really argued about that???
Note to future self: I've noticed that we actually argue more now that we don't see each other as often.
Weird, isn't it?
We definitely work better together than we do apart! But... I guess that's a good thing. =)
