Jerry and I have been together for the past 17 years, and married for 14.5 years. We are already familiar about each other’s quirks, habits, thoughts, feelings, etc. We could even finish each other’s sentence. We are what my parents would say like feet to an old pair of slippers – we are that comfortable around each other.
A few weeks back, we had a bit of a crisis at the homefront. Nasty things were said, mostly coming from me. It was borne out of anger, frustration, disappointment… but mostly out of anger. It was a point when I thought, hey, how could this be happening? We are always in control even in tight situations…. Jerry and I work in synergy. It is not 1 + 1 = 2. As a team, we are always better than 2 people or 2 heads put together. We always take pride in what we could jointly accomplish. What-went-wrong-then???
In the course of trying to resolve the issue, we sought other people’s help. Instead of being bailed out of our fix, we were refused. Surprise, surprise! We were refused by the very people who were close to us. Instead, we were given unsolicited advise as if we didn’t know any better. A lot of bull crap is what we got. Call it paranoia, but I think, fingers are pointed at me for bringing this crisis upon us.
Anyway, I have found a way to work around our situation. It sure was a rocky bumpy ride, but thank God for leading us to the right direction. Special thanks to Mama(razzi) for the valuable help too as always. Now we’re back on track and probably doing a lot better than we were before the crisis.
And yeah, Jerry and I are still a team, thankyouverymuch.
