This was my view at dinner tonight.
Yes that would be my husband's empty chair at 7:05 PM with my dinner that took me about half an hour to prepare and an hour and a half to cook. Not counting the salad.
It drives me crazy that I never know WHAT time he is going to be home. I pretty much quit cooking for a few years because he was never home and we were on the go so much I didn't even care. Which of course, is not that healthy for the family. I've been trying to cook dinner every night. I've been making a menu and going to the store to get everything so I don't have an excuse for not cooking.
So the kids and I eat dinner and I put food on a plate for him and then I put the rest in the fridge and take it for lunch.
And try not to be pissed off that he's not here.
YES he commutes.
YES they are busy at work.
YES I appreciate that he goes to work and deposits his paycheck to support his family.
BUT it doesn't matter where he has worked, he hardly ever lets me know when he's going to be home. If he does it's usually at 6:30 to tell me he's working late or just leaving. Um yeah, thanks, dinner is already done? Not that I'm going to make my kids wait that long to eat.
What would you do? Obviously I've tried the call me and text me thing already.Pin It
