Last night my husband and I had a 'talk'.
As most of you know, he has started his training. Which means he's gone pretty much all day.
I stay home with Adelei. I clean house & cater to my daughters every need.
I love it.
But I still need some time to myself every once and a while. So when Aaron got home yesterday, I asked him if he would mind watching the baby for a little while so I could have some time to myself. He agreed.
It just so happened that it was time for her last nap of the day, so he should have no problem.
I put her down, grabbed my purse, & headed out the door.
I had some things on my mind, yes.
I also needed fresh air, and I wanted to get a few things for the house without having to take the baby. So I multitasked.
After I had only been gone a little over an hour I heard my phone ping...I knew it was a text from Aaron, 'What ya doin?'
*sigh* Here we go...
I responded '@ Hobby Lobby' and within seconds 'coming home soon?'
I wanted to scream! Right then & there in the middle of the store. But I kept it together. I finished browsing, and checked out. When I left there, I went home.
After I put the baby to bed, we talked.
Apparently he thought that because I left when I said I needed 'me' time, that I was upset.
That was not the case. Have I been feeling a little morose lately? Yes. But isn't that to be expected when you move 1,000 miles away from anyone you know for the first time? After explaining this to him, he somehow came to the conclusion that I don't want to stay home with Adelei. Read--this is NOT the case!
But after being home for 7 days, unpacking, cleaning, & catering to everyone else [husband, baby, dog] I just wanted a little bit of time for just me.
I don't think that is too much to ask for.
