First of all, I will be changing my blog name. :) The link will remain the same. :)
My new name will be "Submitting To Be Led", and I still haven't decided fully on the tag line with "Jumping into the passenger seat and giving Hubby the Wheel", I might keep it, might not. As you can see, I've already started work on the title, but will probably play around with it a bit more before it's completely finished. I just want to give you all a heads up before the name officially changes though. Even though the link will be the same, it'll probably show up with the new name on your blog rolls.
So.... in trying to be submissive tonight, I didn't use good judgement.
Hubby has been needing a haircut for a month now. I'm the only one that has cut his hair since we married over five years ago, and since I've been sick, it hasn't gotten done. Tonight at 10:00pm he asked if I was too tired to cut his hair.
I was tired, but wanted to please him, so I said if he'd get the chair and the scissors and comb while I ran to the washroom, I'd do it. About five minutes in I realized I was more tired than I thought. But I couldn't very well quit and have half of his head several inches short than the other. So I decided to try the electric trimmer and put it on 3/4' length. But I've never used it, and I couldn't get it to this time. I don't know if it's not working from lack of use, or it just never worked. So, discouraged, I put it away after trying for two to three minutes and attacked his hair again.
And then I did something I've NEVER done before. I cut myself. I had put the scissors too close to where my index and middle finger meet, and there is now a V shaped cut about 1/4' in length on either side of the V, the tip of the scissors had closed in over my skin. I couldn't believe it. So I finished up, being much more careful, and his hair looks pretty good. I admit, it probably could have been a tad bit more styled, but he never cares if it is or not. He just wants it off his ears and neck, and could care less if there is any style to it or not. So I have a happy Hubby, my cut is cleaned and stopped bleeding, and in about ten minutes I'm off to bed.
Lesson Learned? If Hubby asks for something, make sure I'm actually able to do it safely. If I made a mistake and cut myself, how likely could I have been to cut his ear or neck? So it was good that I tried to please Hubby, not so good that I didn't realize my limitations. He admitted to me that is why he had checked to see if I was too tired, and I should have been more honest. But at least it's done for the next two to three months. :) And for that, I'm grateful. :)
