I don't get it. My Hubs really doesn't get it sometimes. I love him, I really do, but we look at the world completely differently.
It's frustrating for me that in my opinion he gets to take time away from me and the kids to run, bike, chat with friends, run errands, etc. I don't get the same luxuries.
He got really sick on Friday and ended up in the ER. Everything turned out fine, thank goodness but I had to deal with 2 major events with the kids including the school Art Show and T-Ball Opening Ceremonies and 1st game of the season. He didn't get home until mid day on Saturday and was understandably exhausted and honestly, so was I.
I'm so glad that Sunday is here. We had nothing planned and I thought I could finally tackle mount laundry. He wants to go pick up some new clothes and since I recently got some for myself I told him to go alone. When he got back we were supposed to have lunch. I heated up some soup, like he asked. He disappeared and I ate alone. He had wondered over to a neighbors and was chatting it up. Fine.
I'm really bummed out today about not getting to adopt the puppy I wanted from the rescue league so I'm probably making more of it then necessary...
I try to take Muffin upstairs with me to take a nap. I was so sleepy and thought a quiet Sunday, why not? A nap just sounded so fabulous. When Muffin decides he wants to play more then sleep I tell Hubs the situation and that I'm going to take a nap and Muffin is coming downstairs with him. He gives me that Puppy Dog look and says, "Oh I was going to go running with the guys."
After I've done 10 loads of laundry and emptied and loaded and emptied the dishwasher again. Made lunch, cleaned lunch up, vacuumed the stairs and dealt with the kids.
It hurts me when he says things like I'm selfish. I don't think I am selfish. I feel like I put everyone's needs above my own.
I guess I'm just frustrated and complaining today.
The puppy story is another post and I don't feel like writing it right now.
