Hi lovely ladies! I feel like I just need to vent about DH. I am not speaking to him at the moment, because I feel like I don’t have anything constructive to say to him.
I feel like he is very selfish, but I don’t want to say that in so many words to him. Last night, he was out at a networking event, I guess, which was supposed to be over at 7pm. Before he left, he told me to heat up some leftovers for him for when he got home around 7:30-8:00pm. He also informed me that the dog ate something, and has been throwing up all day. Great! Just what I wanted to hear after a long day at the office. Well, 8pm rolls around, no DH or word from DH. I get a little worried, of course, and finally text him to see where he’s at. Only at this point, he tells me not to worry about dinner and that he was still out drinking. I felt like an idiot waiting for him. I also felt bad for the dog, because I hadn’t fed him dinner, because I didn’t know if I should feed him regular food or chicken/rice instead; it is my first dog ever. And, I’ve gotten in trouble for bothering DH duing events before, so I didn’t want to text him too early.
This has me thinking about what will happen when we have a baby. DH told me that I can’t be a SAHM, because it would affect our, err his, lifestyle (no new $1000 car parts). Will I be left at home by myself at night with baby after a long day at the office? DH obviously says things will be different when we start a family. But will they be? He said the same thing about getting the dog, but apparently a sick dog, isn’t a good reason to come home on time.
I guess I should a little more understanding about a networking event going over. That might mean a new job opportunity for DH. But, he said a couple of days ago that he is a lifer at his current company. His current company is not based here, so I highly doubt there were people there from his current company. I am just frustrated.
The above doesn’t surprise me in the least, though. His concern has always been about himself and what he thinks. He wouldn’t even get me the All-Clad pot that I wanted for Christmas, because, in his mind, it was too expensive for a pot.
Oh well. Thanks for listening to me.
