- Wedding: May 2012
My FI is going through a tough time at work. He’s in the science field, and his experiments aren’t going the way they should. He’s gotten a little behind in his readings (probably because he has spent so much time in the lab), and his boss called him on it. He also just told me that he has to be in the lab 5-6 hours on one of the days that I’m there, and probably will have to go in a few hours on another day (I’m going Friday evening – Monday evening). We also live about 5 hours apart right now. On top of all of this, he misses me, he misses his family, he has a new nephew which I know he is bummed that he can’t see more of, and his brother just finished treatment for cancer. He tried calling me the past few days, but right after work on Friday, I was at a wedding, then I was at a bachelorette party this weekend. He said he understood that I wasn’t available to talk, but when he called his parents, they didn’t offer him the support he needed.
He then started asking me questions about wedding stuff that I needed to accomplish (like choosing bridesmaid dresses), and I said that I hadn’t gotten there, but I did work on our Save the Daets today. I didn’t even have the heart to ask him if he had gotten his list of things accomplished–I figured that wouldn’t go over well.
We’re going to Skype tonight, which hopefully that will help a bit. I just feel really helpless right now. He just sounds so down :-(. I wish I could do something to help out!
