Normally- I enjoy this time of year

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Good Morning; there has been a few things in my life that has made this time of year more stressful for me. Coming back from seeing my chronically ill friends lead me to a slight depression and my DH is now home nightly. He thinks I am his entertainment- I feel I am living with a teenager at times. I knew this would happen with my DH- the man just can not keep himself busy. He wants to be around me all the time. We have had talks but it seems to keep happening. Last evening, he says to me I will be working home tomorrow. He looked at me. Don't you want me home - I said "no". He looks hurt. I told him I have much to do. You will be off Thursday and Friday. What I need to do is get him exercising. He thinks sex is his form of exercising. I love him deeply but I liked what I had independence and not having to answer to any one at my age. He is always asking what are you going to do today. DD will not be home this Thanksgiving but my son is coming with his GF. Adrienne is crawling now. She loves getting in the dogs food dish. have a wonderful day! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh I do enjoy my independent time, too. Doesn't mean that don't love DH. It just means I love ME too! That's what I see you saying in this message and that DH doesn't quite get.

**SIGH** I am convinced that when DH retires he's going to have to become a WalMart greeter (or I will) ! He needs to be busy too.

How cute that Adrienne is crawling! I bet she's adoreable.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. HUGS and hang in there.

    I also enjoy my free time, and sometimes feel like DH wants me to entertain him when he's home. However, we don't spend a lot of time together, with his work hours and my work hours, we only get an hour or so together each day. I really enjoy the days when we can spend more time than that together.

We are doing Thanksgiving dinner tonight, then DH is traveling to visit his mom in the nursing home tomorrow. He'll be back on Saturday, so I'll see the kids this weekend, but will get my share of alone time!

Enjoy the holiday!

    Hang in there, you will get through it. Sometimes holidays can be more stressful that enjoyable, but keep smiling I have no doubt you will get through it.
