So you get to the airport (Saturday afternoon), drop your wife and daughter off at check-in, unload everything from the van (you think), except for your stuff which you'll bring with you, drive over to economy parking, grab the shuttle back to check in, check in, go thru security, get on the first leg of your trip (which left almost one hour later than scheduled), make your connection for the second leg of your trip (which was delayed so that you and a few others could board), arrive at your final destination, meet your hosts, get all your bags... except, wait, all hte bags aren't there b/c you left one of the bags in the van b/c you thought your wife was going to get it and she thought you were (do all you marrieds communicate so well?). Whose bag, you say? My wife's, of course. Who has to sing this morning and tonight (Sunday)? My wife, of course. What to do? Rely on gracious hosts to provide clothes for this morning and send her off shopping this afternoon to get an outfit.

Oh the joy... :)

That sounds like something my husband and I would do. I think that it is typical in marriages to not always communicate the best.

After the panic, and probably the blaming...I would be excited to go shopping. hehehhe!!! Sorry, but I am looking the girls bright side in all the bad.

Hope it all worked out though.

Melody said...

Yikes!! But I guess there are worse things to do than shopping! ;)

Cristi said...

Hey, cool way to get a new outfit. Blame it on him! Good one! I might try it if I ever get the chance!

Paige said...

well, I would like to say it could be worse...
but I am not sure it can be...

except that you have a very gracious, patient wife who has been detoxing...so maybe all the yucky feelings got detoxed too...

plus, what girl doesn't like an impromptu shopping trip?!?!?!

Our marital communication skills yielded this result last month ...

Better to forget luggage than a kid (Home Alone should be a lesson to all parents!)

Pam said...

This really doesn't sound all that unusual!! When everything settles down - what better excuse to go shopping?

Hang in there! Put it in perspective! It's just luggage!

All will be well!!

After all these years of marriage (over 18), we still have big problems with miscommunication. As a matter a fact, those are the top issues that cause friction in our marriage.
Hopefully there was no friction for you!
