A couple of other things I wanted to let you know:

1. The other day, while out with his mom (the therapist) - she explained to him that I couldn't have had an A without already feeling bad about myself.
*I think this is important to note because of my decision not to accept gaslighting. This shows that I am working on my self-respect and self-esteem.

2. I am trying to keep my expectations a bit lower with regards to apologies, commitment, and valiant efforts at working on the M.
*This will allow a longer Plan A the H - 180 the WH to take place I believe.

3. This morning, before heading out of town, he said he would miss me. It didn't come out fluidly, but he said it just the same. Then, I got a kiss on the cheek before he left and a big hug! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />
*I know he tends to be kinder right before going out of town, but I see this (paired with our other discussions this week) as a positive sign.

4. He has requested less travel in July and August to allow for more family time. I thought this was a very positive thing!

I'm not going to keep my hopes super-high because of a couple of good days, but I see some good signs here too.

So, yes, let's keep the glass "half full" for now! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
