Whats THAT about...

Keep in mind that as I write this post... I am speaking from MY personal doings. ALSO, keep in mind that THIS POST... THIS ONE RIGHT HERE... IS MY LAST NABLOPOMO POST!!!!!


Okay, back to the post at hand :)


I don't get it! Really, I don't.
I don't understand why we run around making things easier for our other halves. We complain that they have NO CLUE what we do on a daily basis; yet we don't leave without major preparation.
I know, I am rambling right?

Let me splain!

I am going out of town this weekend and leaving the kids and all my D cares to the hubbs. I'm talking carb counting, night time checking, low lifting, high splitting D fun!

He already has a lighter load since it is the weekend. There will be no getting up early, no lunches to pack and the big one... no homework.

So what am I doing, you ask?

Everything that I possibly can to make it "easy" on him. I am starting to wonder if its a control issue.

Lets see...
-I scheduled my flight to leave a little later so that I could tend to "school stuff" Friday morning.

-A site change will be done first thing Friday morning so that there will be no site change needed while I'm gone. Fingers crossed on this one.

-I don't always use the Dexcom. Personal choice because Justin seems to obsess over it and sometimes it causes me more aggravation than anything. HOWEVER, it will be inserted tomorrow so that it makes the night time checks a little easier.

- Leighanna has a planned ice skating party with her Girl Scout troop. I have not only made arrangements with another mom to get her to and from the party... I found myself getting all her stuff together to go because it gets cold in there and I wanted to make sure she is dressed appropriate.

BTW: Anthony told me to just "print him up an itinerary". No shit... that is actually what he said.

That's just the start of it all.
So as I sit here asking myself how he will EVER know how wasy he has it... I am writing notes about what else needs to be done.

I understand I am so the same way!! On one hand I do it because then I know it is done and on the other I hate doing it because he should know... When we go anywhere he packs himself and I pack the kids and me... he always wonders what takes me so long to get it all ready.. REALLY

have fun!! And nope he wont. I do the same shit. Why? Cause we are ocd control freak mamas twin! Gotta love it! ;)

OMG, I do the SAME THING! When I went on a long-awaited trip with my mom and sister earlier this spring (this was pre-D, though) I wrote up a 5 page "instruction manual" for HIS CHILDREN and how to take care of them for a week. They have no idea...I guess that's why we get paid the "big bucks" as moms, right? :)

Sounds as though you're not only one heck of a D mama, you're one heck of a wife, too!

I would do the same for Gregg. For me, it's definitely a control issue and wanting to minimize the phone calls. You know the calls I'm talking about: "What do you do when...?" "Where's the...?" "How much should I...?"

Meri said...

I am so glad you are getting away for some fun! (I hope it is for fun!) Your hubbs has it good. Let him know exactly how good he has it. (Actually, you won't have to...even after all the prep work you are doing, it still is going to be a big load of work for him.)

And it is a control issue...but it always is with a D mama! HAVE. FUN! NO. GUILT. ALLOWED. :)

I think you're an awesome mom. This break will be good for everyone...and I CAN'T WAIT to hear all about it ;)

Heather said...

Um...guilty here. I'm doing the same thing! It's the OCD in me though. Okay, really I do want stuff to be easy for him. I want Tim to be able to enjoy the girls and have fun with them rather then worrying whether he is doing everything "right". That and I want to enjoy my weekend and NOT worry about it! I can not wait to see you in two days!!! :)

Jealous......lucky girl!!!

You will get that "I'm so thankful for you and what you do for us" speech after you come home. Relish in that! Those are usually few and far between around here, but they do come. Sometimes it takes going away to be appreciated......really appreciated.

Don't be fooled though.....they watch us, and that's how they'll get by for those few days/hours/weeks and suddenly know what to do and leave us scratchin' our heads when we're back!!!
