My husband is in his second semester of grad school and it is killing us. Not to mention that our sex life is down to about once or twice per week plus I have to bear the brunt of parenting and household duties. What bothers me the most is, his school is about 40mins from home which makes it stressful for him to drive home after his 5pm class and then rush back to meet with his group for a project they need to finish which extends to midnight. So he ends up staying in school and sleeps in the library two or three times a week. I know, its ridiculous but his program is not forgiving at all. He managed to come home this morning and at 1pm he got a text from a classmate that they needed to meet at 7pm. The look on my face was clearly not funny, but I really didn't know if I should scream or calm the f**k down. So, at 7pm after dinner, he took off. And I am left alone to deal with everything else the entire week.
Normally, I would not complain if I was a stay-at-home-mom, but I am not. I have deadlines at work, I have real work that needs to get done, and here I am vacuuming, cleaning, cooking, doing laundry, paying bills, calling the bank for an atm error, clipping nails, reading bed time stories, and if I may add trying to stay on top of my grad classes as well.
No one needs to tell me what this week will bring, because I know exactly what is coming. I also plan on fitting in some exercise because I clearly haven't come this far to give up now.
Hope you all have a great week ahead. Pardon my rant.What do you ladies have planned for the rest of the week? And have you ever had to work through things because your spouse was too busy?
