Okay I am linking up with Shell over at http://thingsicantsay-shell.blogspot.com/. Check her out she is GREAT!!!
Anyway here it goes...
My "better half" works out of State so when he is working he is completely and totally out of the picture. Meaning he can't help me in any way, shape or form. This SUCKS!!!!
When we met I knew that this was his career choice and I grew to be okay with it. (it was pretty rocky for awhile) But once we had a child this whole working away from home thing became a bigger pain then I ever expected. He misses ALOT, and I know this disappoints him as much as it does us. But the part that is bothering me right now is when he is gone I get absolutely NO breaks from the kids.
I know he is working hard while away, and it sucks living out of a suitcase, however, do NOT call me and complain that you are bored, tired, hungry or anything else. I am here with these kids being tested regularly, being asked to cook, drive, etc. etc. etc. I do not need to hear your quite hotel room, and that you are trying to decide whether to go out to dinner with friends or order room service.
Just once I would like to be the one to call home and complain that my hotel room is too quite and I can't decide what order and have delivered to my room, then eat and leave my tray for someone else to pick up once I have finished.
Just once I want to have the ability to be bored and try to figure out what I want to do, and not have to include a moody 16 year old, and a hyper 4 year old in my plans. Just once I want to worry about ME and nobody else.
Is this all too much to ask for? Yeah, it is but I can dream right?
Thank you for letting me get all of this out, now I must go and finish cooking, cleaning, and dealing with my 4 year old who never lets me get bored!!!
P.S. I really do love my kids and "better half". And I know just how lucky I really am.
