Two Passing Ships

The Mister and I seem to be, that is.  It happens every once in awhile that things are just busy and we are truly like two passing ships.  UGH!  We aren't really doing anything different.  Life just seems to take over, and all of the sudden a week goes by and we have hardly sat down with one another.  It is like our hours are off from one another.

For instance, we had a semi-date night Saturday with the Celtic/Knick game.  EXCEPT that I was running a 5K the following morning at 9:15am.  It sort of puts a damper on the evening festivities.  (And don't even get me started on the pathetic WVU loss!).  Then Sunday, he wanted to get projects done around the house rather than dragging the kids into the cold to see my race.  I get it, but UGH!  Damn compromise stinks.

Then Sunday night is the Steeler game.  Really, did you think I would go to bed?  OK, OK, I was tired enough to fall asleep on the couch and wake up for the handshakes at the win.  But give me some credit - I ran a 5K that AM!  Monday rolls around and we have a presidential debate.  Goodness, this pressure is mounting.  The Mister has his fantasy opponent playing a good player.  So of course, we are up.   Thanks to www.fitbie.com for the fabulous Debate workout to keep me in the game.  And thank you to his opponent's player for sucking :). 

Tuesdays, the Mister has curling in the winter.  (I did indeed say curling - the old man, bizarre Olympic sport that no one gets.  Who knew there were clubs, right?)  It was great though because not only did I get in an afternoon Crossfit Workout, but also an evening run.  Sadly despite his early 10pm arrival, we still were like ships passing in the night.  So here we are awaiting Thursday morning - except now I have a Moms' Night Out dinner in the evening.

Ugh, so here it will be Friday before we actually have time for connection.  Saturday is a kids' birthday party and Sunday starts football all over again.  I hate weeks like this.  Jamaica can't come soon enough!   I am anxious for uninterrupted time alone with this man!!

  1. Susan, I can relate to this - my husband and I are the same. There is always 'something' that seems to get in the way. I am envious you are heading to Jamaica - that will be so much fun for you both!

    1. Gladd it isn't just us, Beth! It's too far away at this point, but the weekend will suffice :)

  2. I rely on my husband so much to help me with the kids that there is a huge void when he is gone. But we do talk in the evenings because we need to know the game plan for the next day! LOL

    1. I think we have had 10 minutes this week even though we have seen each other. It has just blown by!

  3. Been there, done that, and don't have kids! But it was worse when we did.
