CarolPa; we all slip up sometimes. We are mortals, perfectly capable of making mistakes. Just ask my wife. I have spoken of things that I shouldn't have. Fortunately, I don't do it nearly as often as I once might have. We all make mistakes. The trick is to learn from them.
Besides, you were doing this thing called venting. I once made the mistake about venting to my wonderful MIL (and she is really great
) about something DW did to make me angry. Yeh, MIL thought our marriage was in trouble and called to talk to DW. That didn't go over well at all.
The point is, that though much of what I had said came from pure frustration, I said things that I wouldn't have said with a cooler head, and things that I didn't even mean or believe.
Stress, be it from anger, frustration, fear, or whatever can short-circuit our normal feelings, and our true thoughts, helping us to say things we shouldn't say, and probably don't even mean.
You didn't go so far as to say anything bad about your DH, just that you didnt' care to get punched while he was sleeping.
Learn from this experience, and let him know that you are sorry for breaking the privacy rules. You'll work it out.
