He did all the work!! He got the loan, found the car I wanted and arranged for us to go get it. Well, in the fray of doing all of the paperwork beforehand, he scanned his driver's license and forgot them on the scanner. Well, where we got the car was about 45 minutes from our house. You guessed it, he didn't realize it till we were there to purchase the car.
Now, I am ashamed and embarassed to say that in times past, this would have sent me over the roof. At a minimum, I would have been sarcastic and belittled him. You see, my Big Guy, has ADD. He is a hard worker and I love him for it, but organization is something he struggles with. It was obvious that he was embarassed and upset that he was putting us out. We had to drive back and get it in order to get the car. On top of it, our son was with us.
Was it aggravating? Yeah, it was late a night and we were at a deadline before they closed. I looked at his face, and took a deep breath and was able to step back, and realize all the important things.
1. He worked so hard to get everything together to purchase this car for me.
2. It was so important to him that we get something I liked and would feel good about.
3. In the grand scheme of things, it was an extra hour and a half of time we had together in the car.
4. I was able to show my son that I respected and love his dad and how to smooth these kind of situations over.
I am very proud of my man. He has stepped up and expected my respect and made it easy to do so by his treatment and love for me. I am also proud that I am able to say, that I simply told him it was nothing but a thing and I was very sorry that it had made him feel bad. Even our son got into the groove of things and told him that these things happen not to worry about it.
We have come so far. 2 years ago, I would have been an ungrateful witch in the face of the aggravation and made him feel bad. He would have taken in, and we would have had a cold war for days. Not this time.. so..... WE have come a long way BABY....
OH.. and this is what I got.. This one is for you ROGUE!!!
You guessed it!!!!! It's a Nissan ROGUE.....
