Saturday - Cloudy and a bit muggy.
Marriages are such fragile things aren’t they? An unmeasured word, a thoughtless look and there are arguments and hurt feelings. We had a bit of a blow again tonight, hopefully it is passing over.
I got up this morning, showered and waited for F to come home. He did after going to two doctors. He came back and a little while later we went out for lunch.
I was dropped off at my school a little bit after 1 pm. I got quite busy for a while. I had some dusting to do, plus general cleaning. I changed and got a bit of work done. I listened to a podcast on my computer, read the newspapers and then got ready for my student.
She came on time, but will be quite busy next month. We set up a schedule for the next month and off she went. I spent a bit of time doing paperwork, then washed dishes. I finally called F and he came to get me.
We had a few errands to run so we dropped my computer off at home, then got some gas for the car. We drove off to the mall at Mikawa.
We did a little shopping for my niece’s birthday present and got her something nice. F did really well and made some great suggestions. Then, he suggested going to see if there was a movie on soon. We went to look, and there was one starting in about 30 minutes.
We put our shopping in the car, then tried to grab a quick bite. F wanted ramen and it was the only thing at one of the fastest places that was available. I didn’t want ramen and asked about something else, but it wouldn’t be ready in time. I wasn’t really sure what was going on as F was talking to the server and wasn’t translating for me at all. I was prepared to go and get a hot dog or something at the theatre, but F stormed off and had something to eat. He wasn’t polite about it, so I sat down outside the food court and near the theatre. And waited. About 5 minutes before the movie was due to start, I saw him slink out of the food court through another exit and go down the escalator. He didn’t even look for me. There was no-one on the escalator so I yelled after him. We stopped at the bottom of the escalator, had words, and then stormed out of the mall.
We drove back to Tsuruoka in stony silence. F went to bed, then went out. While he was out, I had something to eat. F came back later, he ate something. We didn’t talk for a long time, but then we started making bridges. I think we’re okay now although F is sleeping away.
I’m not sure what we’ll get up to tomorrow. I hope it’ll be good for both of us. Got to go. Night.
