Whe Hubby's Away...

Hubby goes and visits his mother this weekend, and frankly, I could not be happier for the break. I have a full weekend doing all the things he does not want to do with me. I plan on taking dogs to play group (or “Yappy Hour” as the dog park calls it.) I have a hair appointment this morning as well. This afternoon I plan on going to the Lebanese festival for lunch. I may go by Lowes and pick up some paint. This evening I may go see a movie, either by myself or with a friend. We will see what works out. I may also clean. The house is a mess, and I do better if the house is clean.

Sunday I plan on doing my grocery shopping and going to meeting. I may finish painting the red room yellow while listening to the NASCAR race. Hopefully Hubby will not mind moving furniture when he gets back. I can let that go for right now, though.

Hubby has been grumpy the past day or so. His mother has a lot of health problems and she is not doing well right now. I think it is hard for Hubby to see that because he cannot do anything about it. Even if we were still in Tappahannock, we would not be able to do anything. I hope he will feel better after the visit I do not know what to tell him. His mother has to live her life, and she is not going to change easily. I understand that, and I get to listen to all of her health problems. She talks about her health issues more freely with me than with Wade. I think it has something to do with me being a nurse.

In other news,
I finally made an appointment with an IF MD. I see him on June 18. Hopefully we can talk DI and maybe attempt a cycle during the next few months. I also have a GYN appointment next week. And I made an eye appointment. Gotta take care of my vision.

I had to declare my specialties at work. I decided to do eyes, GYN, and general. I love doing eyes because it is so different. There is a lot going on under the anatomy. I also feel pulled to GYN surgery. I know this puts me right in the middle of IF/pg loss, but I really feel drawn to it. Fortunately we just do GYN. OB has a separate OR on the L and D floor. So just GYN surgery: hysteroscopies, D&Cs, ablations, hysterectomies (laparoscopic and open, vaginal and abdominal), exploratory laps, and any other procedure dealing with the girly parts. I am a little girly myself, so I think it works.

(And how cool is it that my blog was mentioned on Stirrup Queens. I feel so special, and all the comments are wonderful!)

As much as I love my husband, I truly enjoy the times when he goes away and I have the house to myself for a bit. And, it makes me even more happier to see him when he does get home!

Sending good wishes towards your MIL and your husband in handling her failing health. It's not easy to watch someone you love being ill.

It is nice sometimes to have Hubby away. We are together so much (and I love being with him) but sometimes I like to miss him, too. Does that make sense?!?!

Besides, you're right, there are so many things that need to be done that is just easier to do when he isn't around. Plus, it is a good excuse to get take-out Chinese and watch girl movies all night!

Is it wrong that this post just made me wish DH were off on a business trip? I love the man to death, but I adore "me time" too...

(Thanks for dropping by my blog, btw!)

I hope you're having a lovely weekend without your husband. :) It sounds so funny to say that, but having that time to yourself is just awesome, and necessary too I think. I usually go home a couple times a year to visit my family without DH, and it's just great, for both of us - since we live in his hometown, he gets to hang out with the guys and his family as much as he wants, and I get to do the same. Enjoy the weekend. :)

I hope your weekend has been all you hoped for!

Dropping by from NCLM. I love it when I have the house to myself too! He was a bit despondent when I told him, upon his return this week, that I would have liked another couple of days. But I often go away (for IF treatments, IVF, etc) and he rarely goes on a holiday I don't attend.

I love pleasing myself for dinner and leaving the dishes. And the ironing, vacuuming, etc etc. Just to curl up with a book on the sofa and not feel guilty - that's my idea of a good time!

Sorry you are having such a long wait for your child. It must really suck. Ten years is more than I can imagine. Sending you both best wishes....
