I'm here!

Just a quick post to say, "Hi!" to everyone! I've been reading but not commenting.

Felicia is well, I am well, The Bee...well, he's hanging in there! Work is ridiculous and terrible for him these days. Without trying to sound too dramatic, I feel like a single mother with really awesome child support right now. My husband is pretty much only home to sleep (we eat dinner between 10pm and 2am most nights because that is when he gets home). He is also currently sick, so when he is home, I am taking care of him, too! One would think that a career that uses his college degree would allow for a higher quality of life, but right now he is really dragging. There was even one day a few weeks ago where he didn't even get to hold Felicia in a 24 hour period because of his stupid job. I am glad he is employed, I am not trying to sound ungrateful, but I need my husband and Felicia needs her Dad! I am very worried about his health...physically, mentally, and emotionally.

When we visited my Grandma last Sunday (without The Bee because he was at the office, poor guy), she gave me a hug and said, "I don't ever post on facebook, but I do go on to check on people. From things you are writing I can tell that you love your baby and you miss your husband." Spot on, Grandma!

Lest you think I am exaggerating about how hard/sad it is to not see The Bee (or how stressed/tired he is), Felicia and I drive him to and from work on Thursdays 1. just to spend some waking time with him and 2. so that I can feel confident he will get to and from work safely at least one day of the week.
