Feeling pretty under appreciated right now. Dh had to be a part of a retirement ceremony again today. This is a guy he has total respect for and truely calls him a friend, so I understand that he wanted to be a part of the ceremony when he was asked. He had to be in Norfolk at 8am to do a run through, then the ceremony itself didn't start until almost 11:30. I didn't go because I would have had to get Evan out of bed early to get him ready, and I didn't really want to try to keep him entertained by myself all that time. There was a party after the retirement, and dh said originally that he wasn't going to go. Well he called me ON HIS WAY to the party. He said it wasn't supposed to start until 2, but it was in VA Beach, so no point in driving all the way home. He said he wasn't going to stay past 2:30. Well i am sure you see where this is going.......... It's 5 right now. He hasn't even LEFT the party. He "just had his last beer about an hour ago" so he's waiting a little longer to leave. It will take him at least an hour with the traffic as bad as it is right now.

I think Evan and I are going to go get something to eat. Dh doesn't take the time to think of me first, so he can find his own food tonite.

On a more positive note, Evan took a 2.5 hour nap IN HIS CRIB!!! This is HUGE!!! I have always had to hold him and rock him to get him to take naps, but this is the second day in a row he has slept in the crib for a nap. And today it was without a single tear!!!

Hi Julie,

Sorry you feel underappreciated. It is amazing to think that one day my husband and I will get back to normal again soon. We are still at the place where we don't feel like being social. On the one hand it is good to know that one day Jeff will actually enjoy going to a party. Take care.

I know when my DH leaves, I just want to feel like he is missing me. I understand this feeling...I hope he comes home soon.

How aggravating. I hope you went some place good for dinner. At least get out of the house for a while and enjoy the 'fresh air'.

Yay for Evan! That is so cool. Gracie always hated her crib. I'm so jealous.

Hi Julie!

A propos of only your comment on my blog, I don't know why my site has a 'Q.' Is that a Windows thing? I work on a Mac. Maybe the pictures take a little while to load? Are you on a dial-up? Maybe I should have some 'hold' music while it's loading... sorry about the wait but thank you for all your thoughtful comments. I think I've given everyone a headache lately.

Wrong Julie, lorem, but thanks for the reply! :-)
I won't hijack her blog to explain, but I would welcome an email from you if you're really reallyreally bored and find my technical difficulty tittilating.
Also - Hi, Julie! I didn't dream about you last night. Sorry. lol
