My husband travels a lot for work. Sometimes he's gone 2 nights a week, sometimes for the whole week, sometimes for more than a week or two. We just went through a spell where he was gone all week, home for 48 hours and gone again. It's not fun, as you ladies know, but it's life and you make the best of it. I think what really has gotten me lately though are my friends whose husbands come home every night, at the same time mind you, and think that they know "exactly" how you feel and how tough it is because their husbands don't help with....(insert a chore here). Yes, I am pretty sure I am being petty for being annoyed by this, but honestly, some weeks I would love for my husband to load the dishwasher incorrectly, because that means he's home.
Anyone else have to deal with this? Oh, and being late home by an hour is not the same as being gone for a few days....Whew, just had to get that out. Thanks ladies, I thought this group might understand how I feel :)
