Gone Daddy Gone

I've heard a lot of stories about women who feel depressed because they never get to see their husbands. I never understood because, until now, Brandon and I were pretty much always together.

We drove back and forth to the school that we both worked at together. We cooked, shopped, ate, watched movies, hiked, camped, and listened to NPR together. In fact, we were together so often that we had to schedule time apart into our lives.

Well, times have changed. Now even when my old man is around, he's always studying. I mean, I don't know what these teachers think grad school is supposed to be. It's like they expect him to work really hard.

He's been writing so many papers that he had to put a pillow on the chair like an old lady.

Once in awhile he has a little bit of extra time, and who do you think gets it?
I can't really blame him. The babe is a lot of fun. Lucky for me Rocky's bedtime is 7 o'clock. Unfortunately, after all that work, it's more and more becoming Brandon's bedtime too.

If I could just get Bullwinkle to do the dishes, maybe I could get his spot on the couch.
In the meantime, at least I've still got NPR.

I feel your pain Marci. The breaks between quarters are going to become very precious to you. Keep hugging that sweet babe of yours and you'll do alright.

I had to use a pillow, too.

I used to benefit when you and Brandon wanted time apart. Now I sit at home alone too. It's times like these when I really wish you were here :( Well, we'll be up there soon enough. Take plenty of pictures in the mean time. I want to see my little BaRocky growing up.

Oh, Marci. Can I just say how much I love you?!? I laughed through reading your entire "trainwreck" escapade. I've had days like that where everything goes a rye. Thank goodness you didn't have to add Rocky crying the whole time on top of it. Secondly, I am so there with the hubby thing. You and Rocky can come over and hang out any time. Seriously. We might as well be alone together! :)
