Email of the Day: My Husband Was Interrupting My Morning Ritual!

I recently got mad at my husband for interrupting my morning ritual!


He works from home now and likes to have the TV on while he eats breakfast. I like to start my day in silence, journaling and doing yoga. The TV grates on my nerves! We have an open-concept floor plan and it’s really hard to escape the sound.

This morning I was sitting in silence, because I had gotten my way. But at what marital cost? I had heard a caller with a similar issue last week, so I immediately went into my husband’s office, dropped to my knees and β€œsurprised” him. He was stunned, happy, and I honestly don’t think I’ll have a problem with TV noise first thing in the morning ever again. It’s a win-win.

Thank you for reminding me to be savvier when it comes to the little things in a marriage.
