BW has tracker on my phone, and I tell her everywhere I am going. On Monday, I had an unscheduled visit to a client. This client is in a complete dead zone for cell reception. I have been there before and no one could contact me.
So on my way, I left a voice mail for BW, telling her where I was going, and reminding her that my cell phone would probably not show up.
As I was leaving after my appointment, I got a text that said "I can't find your cell phone, where are you." Ten seconds later I got "Nevermind, I just checked messages." I still called right away to make sure she hadn't triggered too badly.
Later on, BW felt sheepish. She said that she almost never checks my phone.
First of all, I don't believe that she almost never checks. More importantly, I actually love it when she does. I feel like every chance I have to prove myself to BW, no matter how small, that I am doing a little bit to rebuild our M. I in no way feel mistrusted, or that my privacy is being invaded, or anything like that.
I know that even the next decade of being where I say I will be is nothing compared to the years of lies and deception. But every good thing is better than nothing at all.
