I am so #@*%#!

March 2nd, 2007 at 10:02 am

Hubby has called and tried to back out of something I really needed him to help me with today. It was a big deal to me. I knew that he still didn't feel well, and I tried my best to get him to slow down and not save the world the first week back to work. He didn't listen. I let it ride. Now, he's bailing on me. Work came first, I guess. Now, I know it is important, but this isn't the first time and won't be the last that I've felt less important than the job. Most of the time, I understand. But sheesh! Sometimes, I get tired of doing these things alone. This time I've insisted. But I know he doesn't feel well and that makes me feel bad, too. I'm going to feel awful about this either way. And it was supposed to be a happy thing.....

    I'm sorry, Jan! I know how it feels to come in in 2nd place. In our case it's not the job, but volunteer duties (EMT, volunteer fireman, church, Boy Scouts, ect.) HUGS!

    Thanks, rduell! I really needed the hugs and to vent!

    I can empathise (sp.) with you. My husband is away a lot with his job. It seems he is either gone or home sleeping. So not much quality time with the family. But he is a good guy, so I cut him a little slack. It does get frusterating sometimes though, and when I get to the point of "no return", he will take some time off for family time.

    I have had to accept that a man's career comes first, much of the time.
    My husband is a professional who has a demanding career, and he gives it 110 per cent. I sometimes resent that all of his energy goes into the job, and when he is home, he is often exhausted. I could be mad, but I'd be mad most of the time. I have learned to accept this as a fact of life, because it is not going to change in my case. Not the best situation, but I have made it work for me.
