The last couple days have been a bit crazy.
Thursday we didn't have class, district conference day. Dh took the whole day off to spend with me. We cleaned house, did laundry, went for a bike ride. Then yesterday he flew out to CA for the weekend. I had a ton of homework to do, grocery shopping, the kids had a half day, then I had to pick up a sitter and make it to class last night.
Today...I'm going to go for a run, then take the kids out to lunch, then go to the bike store to get new pedals on my bike. Usually I wait for dh to be around to do that kind of stuff, but I am going to brave it on my own.
Then bio homework the rest of the day/evening.
Of course I have not heard from dh at all since he left. SO TYPICAL. No text that his plane landed, no good night call to the kids, etc. He gets mad at me that I hate him going out of town, but if he acted differently when he went, I wouldn't hate it to so much. Its either totally "out of sight, out of mind" or he is "embarrassed" to contact me in front of his family because that would be an acknowledgment that he actually gives a darn about me. I don't even when his plane gets in on Sunday because he kept "forgetting" to check and tell me. He could be home at noon or midnight for all I know. Ugh.
But I am doing my best to enjoy the weekend anyways, excited about getting my bike pedals and have some good workouts planned too!
I was wondering where everyone was - glad to hear from you.
Today one of dd's friends is coming over. I want to go to the gym and get the laundry out of the way. Tonite we are going out for a family dinner and tomorrow one of the girl's has a bday party. Busy social weekend.
Got all of my marking down last week - this week will be much better.
PS - hope you have an ok weekend MichaelAnn.
I'm working from 8am-8pm today and tomorrow, so all I have planned is work and some yoga...maybe a quick trip to the store to grab a few necessities, and that's about it. While I love working a bulk of my hours in three days, sometimes it can get VERY tiring.
MichaelAnn, about your husband, that stinks. When my ex left town, he never called, e-mailed, texted, etc. Then again, he went out 6-7 nights per week with his buddies, and he never contacted me then either! I know it's VERY frustrating when you feel you have to shoulder 95% of the housework and childcare on your own with little help or concern. I remember feeling a TON of strain back then.
I would find that hard as well. I like to touch base with my dh each day when he is away via phone or email. Although I enjoy having a little space, the house feels to quiet at night when the kids are in bed. I hear way more creeks and never sleep as well.
Funny - I just went to call my dh (he is out for brunch with his dad). And I can hear the phone ringing in the desk. I wonder if he knows that he left his phone ? What did we do before portable phones ?
It's funny because my 2nd H is the complete opposite! of my ex. DH is going to NC to visit his sister and a few weeks and I know he'll text or call from the airport, then when he lands, he'll also check in a couple of times a day when he's down there, etc. Sometimes, it's a little over the top...lol! But, I'm much happier being with someone who shows me he cares. My first marriage was so unhappy that I'm fine getting some extra time and attention.
Though I'm happy to sleep in a snore-free room while he's gone, I do miss him while he's away. He's a great guy and he makes me happy :)
That it is so nice - happy for you that you have a dh that makes you so happy.
I am pretty lucky with mine - (knock on wood).
Aww, that is nice! LOL on the snoring, DH does too if he's too tired. I like being able to watch TV before bed when he's away though I agree w/Ann's - way more noises in the night I don't like though.
MichaelAnn - Hope DH makes it up to you, I'd be unhappy about that too.
I had a busy week last week and unfortunately a busy one next week until Thursday. DD16 was admitted to the Natl Spanish Honor society last week and I went to an education
