Passive Aggressive

Recently I have been really jealous of all of Garry's trips and experiences. He's been able to travel and see some fun things over the last few months.

I feel a little stuck. Molly will not take a bottle very well and so we're never apart for very long. It can be a bit much some times and even though Garry complains about airports and hotels, I just think about time to read, a king sized bed that was ALL MINE, feeding myself first in the morning (what? what?), adult conversation, no diapers, no fighting!

Sidenote: do you know what Emma and Macey fought about today? They were pretending to catch imaginary fish and eat them and Emma was eating all of the imaginary fish.

Is it any wonder that I'm a little jealous of Garry's time away?

So, I've been a little passive aggressive in my jealousy and anger. I called Garry a nickname he HATES on purpose and last night I stole his pillow and pretended to be asleep while he was looking for it.

Small stuff, but it makes me smile. There's a shirt in my closet I know he hates. I think that I will wear it tomorrow.

I feel the same way when Chris goes to some awful place like Hawaii...and then has the nerve to call it work. Poor thing eating room service in paradise.

Yep, Lincoln and I have had the same conversations when I was stuck home with the youngsters and it seemed like he was jet setting it around the world . . . Alaska, Jamaica, Bolivia, England, and he wasn't having a BIT of fun . . . he missed us Sooooo much while he was gone . . . sob, sob, sniff, sniff!!! He'd rather be home eating home cooking than eating out every night, another sob, sob, sniff, sniff, Yeah right!!! I'd like to put his shoes on my feet for once! I have tagged along on a few of his trips, there are perks! (I wouldn't tag along for his current trip however)

For some reason, Scott has to keep going to conferences in Orlando. He says that's the most depressing place to go w/out your family.

I know how you feel. I would even trade looking into people's mouths somedays, just so Brandon could spend a day doing what I do to try and drum up a little mutual respect and understanding, not to mention, talk to some adults, even if I did have my hands in their mouths.

Thank you everybody for your comments. Garry thinks that my jealousy is ridiculous and sophmoric so it's good to feel NORMAL.

Oh you are so funny! I feel the same way when Jamie travels--I nearly obsess about how he gets to sleep uninterrupted, eat when he wants, have FREE time, and doesn't have to give baby baths or clean the house.
