So I wrote this great post yesterday about how one of my new years resolutions was to be understanding of Dr.D's schedule and his time away from us. Well I have to sadly admit that after only 1 day, I have failed!
Today was the first day back to school for my girls after winter break and my morning was extremely hectic. I began to get incresingly annoyed at Dr. D because while i was running around like a mad women he was just doing his own thing. Then when I finally flipped out, he simply said he was in a hurry and had to get his things done. Now, mind you he organized a few papers ate the breakfast that I prepared for him and got dressed. While I got myself ready, got both girls ready, made breakfast for everyone, prepared the girls lunch, and made sure they all had their school supplies. I was steaming! He just gave me a simple "we have to be more organized".
The morning was just the tip of the iceberg. Today he only had to go to the hospital to round on 5 patients and then he was coming home but was on call. He told me to wait for him to go to the store becasue he would be home by 11:00. At 10:38 I sent him a text asking how it was going and he responded good. As you can guess 11am came and went then 12 came and went too. At 12:20 he finally called to say he was leaving the hospital. I was so upset, therefore failing my new years resolution, because I made sure to let him know how upset I was. I wasnt mad that he took an extra hour and a half, I was mad that he didnt take 1 minute to text me and tell me he would be late. If he would have then I would have just gone out and not sat around waiting for him. I think thats the part I hate the most about being married to a Physician, I feel like I live my life waiting for him.
I am still going to attempt to be more understanding, I guess you can call this strike one.
