One of the things YHC is learning is how important communication is within a marriage as it is within all walks of life. A recent learning experience came the week of Growruck 12. YHC was super stoked for Dredd, Bono and Slaughter coming to Memphis. Had every intention of attending the early festivities Friday night at Carolina Watershed. However, the afternoon at work did not go to plan and some events occurred that left YHC significantly angered and frustrated. Going home did not make things any better and work-related frustration spilled over into an argument with the M. While not a fight per se it did lead to hurt feelings and misunderstandings. A long and fairly meaningful discussion ensued and we both learned new things about each other. Needless to say, YHC did not make it to Carolina Watershed that evening.

The next morning after the awesome BC, during Growschool, Dredd said something interesting about where a person is most likely to have a car accident: within 5 miles from home. Also, a person is most likely to fight with their spouse over any other people. It simply is a law of averages: where we spend most of our time driving or who we spend the most time around. This gave YHC (who had been feeling pretty lousy about the events from the previous evening) a new perspective and also renewed enthusiasm for making things right with the M (starting with an apology).

Prayers for Bruces M, Commies Grandfather.
Pax were awesome today, October chill and all!
