i need to get this off my chest, and there's just no one or no place else i can turn to so sorry guys. I'm not expecting any replies, it'll just bore you but i need to get it off my chest.i feel neglected. Ever since Peter came home from South Africa ( now 3 weeks ago - THREE whole weeks) he's been working from home. At first i thought this would be great. He'd be home when i finished work, and we'd get to spend the whole evening together... how wrong i was...He drops me off at work at 8 or 9 in the morning, depending on what time i start and picks me up in the evening. That bit is great, but that's about it. It's straight back to his laptop when we get home, and doesn't switch it off till 10-11pm. I'm lucky when he drags himself away from it to have dinner (half an hour -at most -, on the sofa, coz we don't have a study so his papers and all that have occupied the dining table)This project is really big and important, so i've tried to be understanding and all, but this has been going on for 3 weeks now. And i'm not talking onday to Friday, this is Saturday and Sunday too! We're having a bank holiday here this weekend, and this is the first time we've got some nice weather... how did i spent it? Spring cleaning the appartment. The only fun bit we've done in these 3 weeks is an hours walk along the beach last Sunday and dinner with some friends on Friday (and even that was just ok as the couple we went to both work for the same company, so conversation drifted off to work on several occasions) It's now Sunday, 11.30 pm, and guess what he's doing? He is under a lot of pressure and this project is really important for his department, i can understand that. But his boss didn't have a problem taking a week's holiday himself and his 2 colleagues who were supposed to help him seem to have switched off their laptop friday afternoon, so why can't he?The reason i haven't told him anything is coz i don't want to put him under any more stress, but it would be nice if he could acknowledge my presence every now and then and talk to me coz he wants to and not just when he's stuck on something and needs me to help him phrase things...whenever i do make a subtle hint that i'm still around too, he keeps telling me that it's a four week project, so after next week everything should be back to normal...which would be great if he didn't have to travel to europe for a week!!! And on top of that, whenever he does take a break and i'm reading a book or doing stuff on my pc, he expects me to drop everything and come and sit with him!!! That's the bit that really pisses me off... If he wanted a dog, he should have gotten one instead of marrying me!well, that's it... just had to tell someone...sorry it had to be you guys...and BTW, Lenny and rOss, the project he's working on at the moment is for Vodafone New Zealand, so don't expect me to be nice to you these days...it's all your fault!!!
