- Wedding: July 2013
So, my Fiance has a huge work project on his plate this month which will wrap up by month’s end — he is being a *total* grouch. I know he’s super-stressed, but it’s frustrating for me, b/c I am juggling all the wedding planning right now, do all the groceries, make meals 3-4 times a week and am now doing dishes and even had to take out the garbage yesterday. So, I’m super-stressed too.
Today, he was on a stressful work call, and I made him breakfast. When he went to the store, I asked him if he could pick up something for me, and he frowned, threw up his hands and said, “sure, what” really crossly. (I went to the store yesterday, and proactively asked him if he needed anything, btw.) When he came home, I asked him how he was doing, and he said curtly, “I’m busy, that’s what I am.”
Grrr…I really don’t want to blow up at him right now, but this is pissing me off. I know if I get angry, he will say something along the lines of, “I can’t believe you’re bringing this up right now. Do you know how busy I am?”
Of course, part of me is worried too that this is the man I’m about to marry in a month. I’ve dated so many other men who have been nothing but nice, even when under stress.
Am I over-reacting, bees? Should I cut him some slack? He’s usually nice to me, but I admit, I’ve been feeling neglected too b/c of this stupid work project. When he’s not working, he’s zoned out in front of the tv and isn’t in a mood to make conversation. I should add that he wakes up at 5:30 a.m., commutes to work, works a whole day, comes back and then starts work on this project — usually wraps up around 7:30. I do know it’s a lot, but it’s hard for me too, with everything else going on.
