Warning: I’m being a selfish ranting whiny baby
SO keeps talking about “going away” in October. October, november and december are busy BUSY months for me work wise. Everyone’s schedual shifts into high gear and we get one day off a week. It sucks. We work 10 hour days.
He’s been bugging about getting some idea of when/if I’d get the weekend off…and I don’t know. After 2 months of asking he says “I’m taking 10 days off in october so that ONE of those days at least we’ll have off and can get away”
I don’t want to go anywhere in October. I’m going to be crazy sleepy and just want to catch up on my ZzZz’s then. Anytime in september is great! It looks like I might get next weekend off. When I suggested that he made up a TON of excuses, saying “It needs to be in October”
I know I must sound like a brat, but after working a 60 hour work week and geting only 24 hours to rest, if I got a proposal I’m going to most likey say “Yay!” then drift off to sleep :/
A relaxing one day gettaway in October is not going to be relaxing at all. It’s like he forgot last year and the year before. You never see me in the fall. I live at work. The last thing I’ll be wanting to do is drive 6 hours to our favorite getaway spot right after working a 10-12 hour day.

Your schedule sounds difficult but I bet all those concerns melt away when there’s a ring on your finger! It sounds like he’s having it made and it won’t be done until October. Would you rather wait until after December, or steal away sometime in October?

i definitely understand where you’re coming from, i wouldn’t want to drive six hours after a 10 hour shift either! he is probably wanting to give you a chance to escape from the stress of work for a day or two 🙂

I just keep smiling and saying “I know you want some ‘us’ time honey. We’ll make it happen somehow”
Normally he’s quick to understand and reschedual trips. We’ve done it many times for bigger PLANNED OUT things. Once we were flying out to Vegas, but my boss had me switch with someone becasue of someone quitting and I worked 12 days in a row. We replanned the trip without batting an eyelash. Normally he says “your health is most important” and “I can always get time off easy, we go when YOU are ready”.
This whole “OMFG WE”RE GOING IN OCTOBER” is totally new. At times I just look at him like o.O
There’s not even a reason or event, like a birthday, in October. Nothing happens that month but my work starting to go crazy

I would totally go crazy in your situation, leaving a stressful work situation for one day is not so relaxing if it involves “vacationing.” Have you tried explaining it to him like you did here and remind him of last year. I would really just try and get him to reschedule and explain that October is not ideal. If he really wants to get away in October, could you do the first weekend? Maybe you will be least stressed at the beginning?
