I am talking off the fly right now, but needed to vent. Does anyone else have a spouse that works late!? I know I should be so grateful that hubby has a job. This economy sucks and I should feel --and do feel--blessed that he is in a (somewhat) secure job.
However, I get really frustrated at times that he doesn't have a 9 to 5 schedule (it's more like 8am to 7pm). Most nights he leaves the office around 6:00pm, and then add on the hour commute, he doesn't get home until 7:00pm. By that time, I AM DONE!
I guess I need some advice or suggestions because I find myself getting so mad at him sometimes. He swears its "beyond his control" and I am sure it is, but why does it happen over and over. (The Love Dare is truly testing me this week--ha!)
Last week, he was going to meet me and the family for an event at 5:30pm, and guess what!? He got caught up in a conversation with one of his employees and a second with his boss, so didn't meet me until 6:45pm! Tonight he promised he would leave work at 5:30, 6:00 at the latest, and guess what!? He's just leaving now, 6:40pm (remember an hour commute-so that's 7:40pm!--ten minutes past Tom-Tom's bed time).
Oh, BTW, before you think/say it-- I know he is at his desk--he answers his phone and emails--it's not like he is out drinking with friends or cheating on me or anything crazy.
I feel guilty for even complaining, again since he HAS a job, but at times I truly fee like a single mom. Anyone else relate!?
