Why do I feel the need to ask "permission" to do something???
Yesterday I received an email from a friend inviting me to join her at a function at the French Embassy. An evening concert of classical music in the gardens, food and drinks. A chance to get away from the kids for a few hours, I was really excited.
Here is the conversation:
Me: Anne (not real name) emailed to invite me to a concert on Wednesday night. Is is ok if I go? You will be home from work and I will have the kids ready for bed before I leave.
Hubby: Why do you want to listen to classical music? Is it in the budget, yeah know we have a budget.
I didn't even bother answering out loud. My internal monologue went "F@&k you, I enjoy classical music and the $40 will not be breaking the bank. Did I question if the IPad 2 you had to have, was it really needed or in the budget?"
I should just say "Hey I am going out on Wednesday night. The kids will need fed, bathed and put in bed. See ya....
