NO, NO, NO! A thousand times NO!

Guess what I saw when I got home today?

Uh-uh!  No way.  No siree Bob!  Ain't happening.  Period.  End of story.

I told you he was hanging out with his friend-that-is-allergic-to-work too much!!

I had to have time to process this.  You know, because he's still fragile - I can't go completely psycho on him - yet.  Thank goodness they were at the gym - because I might have lost it immediately had he been here.

Lucky for him Man-Child was stuck to us like glue when they got home (how do they instinctively know to do that?).  He stuck around just long enough for Hubby to ask me where his resume was on the computer as he wanted to send it to a contact. 

And I breathed a sigh of relief.

Hopefully, this is about "just in case" and not the beginnings of a mid-life crisis where he needs to "find" himself.  Because between you and me - we don't have time for that.  We have a tuition to pay and this, my friends, is more important to me than anything else.  He knows this 

I know that I am willing to make whatever sacrifices I have to make.  I can quit buying shoes - and just drool over them at the store until security escorts me out the door.  I can limit spending.  I'm even willing to sell the house.  Whatever.  But he will carry his share of the burden in order to keep Man-Child in this particular school for the next two years.  He knows how I feel about this.  College is a different story and we'll worry about it later.  But right now?  THIS IS MY PRIORITY.

I know my husband. And he will find a way to make ends meet. It's all tied up in his manhood and upbringing. He'll do whatever he has to - I know that. It's one of the many reasons I married him.

But, between you and me, this really kind of shook me for a minute.

And right now?  I don't need anymore shocks, thank you very much.

I generally respond to comments via email...if your blog/id is not tied to your email, I will attempt to respond here...but I would strongly suggest that you make your email available if you want to continue the conversation.

Unfortunately, for some reason people with Yahoo emails are receiving bounce-backs. Your comment will be published but I won't be notified; but I will respond once I realize you've left a comment.
