On Marriage

This is an article I recently found.  It is a quite beautiful post on marriage.  I only hope my husband and I can be as admirable an example to our children.

I miss my husband

Captain Caveman has been working graveyard shifts.  This means that he goes to school at noon, goes straight from there to work at 9pm, gets home around 4am, and sleeps until 11 when he has to get ready to go to school again.

It sucks.

Luckily his days off from work and school are the same, but for most of the week he’s either sleeping, or not home.  The semester is almost over though.  Soon I’ll have my husband back.

I don’t know how single moms do it.

Holidays

Ah the holidays.  They used to be such a fun relaxing time.  We started with a trip to SC for Christmas to visit Captain Cavemans family.  Mr. Bug got sick on the way down.  Cue in lots of clothing changes.  The next day Captain Caveman got sick.  Then Squeaker.  So here I am, taking care of three sick people, and waiting for it to strike me.  About 5 days later everyone was better.  I, thankfully, never got sick.  Not sure how I escaped that one.  The rest of the trip was good, except trying to fit all the extra stuff in the car for the trip back.  The day after we get home, my mom and other two brothers arrive for New Years.  The house is packed, and by this point, I’m already tired of people.  It was fun having the whole family together, but tiring.  Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to have a long hot soak in the tub while my hubby watches the kids.

Wife vs. Skyrim

Captain Caveman recently purchased Skyrim.  I do believe he has left me for the Xbox.  Apparently the game is advertised as having over 400hrs worth of gameplay.  Perhaps he’ll surface sometime next year. I wish I could spend as much time as he does playing video games.

Actually it’s not that bad.  We have a deal where one of his days off each week will be completely Xbox free.  Also on his days off he’ll frequently watch the kids for an hour or two so I can have some video game veg(is that a word?) time.  As cool as Skyrim looks, I’m not ready to commit to that much game.  I’ll stick with games that are less of a time suck.
