I was somewhat disappointed when my wife went ahead and got a new fireplace even though I said we couldn’t afford it.
Admittedly, she was able to get a pretty sweet deal on it, but I was still upset about it.
I told her that we were supposed to be a partnership and we should never go behind each other’s back to go for something major like this. Even though she saved so much money, we still had to empty a good portion of the saving’s account. She said that it was indeed a nice fireplace and it also would lower the heating bills a good amount as the fireplace would help a lot with the heating of the home. She was right about that and I realized I was being sort of a baby. Deep down, I really enjoyed the fireplace and I started reading all my books in front of it. I also decided to take my wife out to a nice restaurant. There is this particular restaurant we love going to that has a little cozy area with booths and a nice fireplace. We always try to get the booth that is nearest to the fireplace and it’s always a nice treat. I told her the fireplace she got us was actually better than the one at our preferred restaurant and she smiled at that. I apologized to her for giving her a hard time about the fireplace and told her that I actually loved it very much and I loved her. Honestly, I was so glad that she went ahead and did that. I also knew it was something that she didn’t want to live without and I had to be understanding of that as well.
