- Baby E was sick
- Baby E was teething
- I was sick
- Dh had a big project due (read: was super stressed)
Last week sucked. Baby E & I are still sick, but the worst is over. Now at least Baby E has a third tooth. Something to show for the misery.
Dh and I fought about breaks on Thursday. (Breaks = "me" time.) Thursday night - he played basketball. Friday night - he played softball. Saturday - he planned to be gone all day fishing. While I had been home all week, sick, with a sick, teething baby. So Thursday before he left for basketball I told him - the breaks are not fairly distributed. Because they WEREN'T. Well he couldn't refute that so instead he tried to turn the fight into me not supporting him with grad school. Ugh. Whatever. The end result was that he didn't go fishing Saturday so I was actually able to leave the house for two hours by myself!!!!! Only two hours. Is that really so much to ask? I'm still simmering a bit about the whole thing, if you couldn't tell. Saturday ended up being a very nice day spent (mostly) together as a family. Dh got some stuff done in the yard, moving bushes, planting trees, we went to Target. Ended the day with Baby E sleeping fitfully (poor sick baby) and Dh and I enjoying a movie and Indian takeout.
Now he's gone at a week-long conference which I am both glad and sad about. Glad: house will stay cleaner, don't have to make dinner/can make meatless every night, complete control over evenings. Sad: miss husband, no one to talk to, complete control over evenings is only cool for about two days.
