although for the record he is not smoking pipes on the road (at least not to my knowledge)
My husband has been traveling a lot for work this month. I haven’t mentioned it on the blog for obvious reasons. I don’t really like to advertise on ye olde internet that there is no man in the house. He used to have a position where he traveled a lot, but thankfully he hasn’t really traveled much in the past year.
So this month has been really weird cause he has been gone on an overnight every week this past month. And let me say, it has been rough on all of us. I know he hates being away from his family and we certainly don’t function as well without him.
When you have a spouse who travels it can be very hard to be empathetic to their plight. I mean somehow being put up in a hotel on an expense account doesn’t sound so bad when I trapped at home with piles of laundry and dishes. So it is difficult not to play the one up game. My week was bad….well my week was worse…you know the game. It is a battle not to play the role of the martyr.
The fact is I am blessed with a husband who does a lot around the house. And he is a very involved parent to our kids. So no matter what he says I have it worse simply because I am missing my partner. And we are just better as a two than as a one.
Thankfully his travel is done. And we will get back in our groove. We both need a full day of sleep a piece to recover from this month, but I am happy to have my partner in crime back again.
Having my hubby back home is definitely a finer thing so I am linking up to Finer Things Friday at Amy’s Finer Things.
