… Happy Life, or so "they" say. Well, The Mr. must be in misery, because I am anything but. Somewhere along the line I must have given him the impression that wandering off for hours on weekends (or coming home late on a workday) without saying where he's going or what he'll be doing and coming home without revealing that information, despite having been asked, was acceptable. I know I've explained to him how I wasn't trying to keep tabs on him, however, I felt it was disrespectful and showed little regard for me. I'm not your mother making you check-in; I'm your wife struggling to balance taking care of our daughter and taking care of you. It would be nice to know if you're not going to be home in a timely fashion, so I won't sit here waiting on my partner to tag in, so I can shift my focus on to other things. It'd be nice to not sit here starving while dinner is getting cold, because I'm waiting on someone who won't be home until hours after it's healthy to eat. I'm not even asking for a phone call. A simple text (sans sarcasm) will do.
I try to let it go and not harp on the situation, but I'm obviously not making myself clear, because it keeps happening. I'm tired of trying to be happy when I have so much going on and seemingly no support. I thank God for my relationship with Him, but I struggle in my walk daily, and a lot stems from my marriage. That speaks volumes. But, I'm too tired to go into that now…
On a lighter note, God has blessed me yet again (He is SO good)! I am cancer free!
On an even better note, I am finally bonding with DD. IDK if it was PPD or what, but I think I'm better now, at least as far as she's concerned. She's still working on walking, but I'm beginning to wonder whether a chiropractic adjustment may help. Perhaps she can have that done while we're in MIA. I guess I should run it by The Mr. to see whether he has any objections. This is where we differ (I actually consult him before taking actions that may affect him). But, I digress. I <3 DD!
