I Don't Share Well

maybe it's the fact that i am the 7th of 11 children and was forced to share everything when i was growing up, or maybe it's the fact that i'm a self-centered, self-absorbed, self-serving, selfish witch, but either way i sometimes have a hard time sharing.

if you try to take food off my plate, be prepared to have your hand stabbed by my fork.

if you grab a pen off my desk, be prepared to get sharpie on your face.

if you "borrow" my clothes, be prepared to pay for the dry cleaning (regardless of whether it's called for or not).

okay, so i'm really not that bad, but i've been struggling with sharing lately. in particular, i've been having a hard time when it comes to having to share B on the weekends. i only get so much time with him and i hate having him taken away from me for even a little bit of it. i sound pretty pathetic, don't i?

this weekend was so nice, not because we did anything spectacular (we've spent way too much money this month!), but because it was just the two of us the whole time. it was much needed. and now that i got that out of my system, i might just be able to share him this next weekend...maybe just a little bit.

I feel the same way with my time with R. I am very possessive of it and do not like having to share that time - at all.

I don't blame you...I hate sharing my husband too. He's only "normal" from around 2PM on Saturday to around 2PM on Sunday, before he kicks back into work mode. If I have to share him during that time, I get sad. It really sucks when I have to work.

SO I don't think your selfish at all...just a woman in love with her husband! Glad you got some time alone!

I tend to share well... *except* when Mech is involved. I don't think for one second that it's out of place for us to be protective of our time with spouses when we're enduring so much.

I don't think for one second that you should feel guilty about not wanting to share B with others. You truly need his support right now, especially with all you two have been through. And you have a lot ahead of you both with where this journey is taking you.

You need and deserve that time with him. It's not about being jealous or selfish of his time... it's about protecting the time you two need and deserve together as you make your family work. I have wonderful feelings for you two and am hoping the best...

There's nothing wrong with that! You have lots of catching up to do by the time the weekend rolls around :)

Cutest. Picture. Ever.

OK, first of all, that's the cutest picture I've ever seen.

Secondly, I can definitely understand your wanting him all to yourself!!!

I don't like sharing my husband too much either....he works so many hours and isn't home much.

Glad you had an enjoyable weekend!
