Little Bow Girl

Wife, Mama to Sophie Rose, Full Time Day Dreamer

Yesterday I sat alone in my bed in my parents’ home cuddling my puppy, who was whimpering and crying from an upset stomach. I was exhausted from a flu and trying to calm Benjy, who was throwing up repeatedly. And I was feeling completely down because my husband was away in Vietnam on vacation with his friends whilst I dealt with long hours at work, a sad puppy, missing my parents in Shanghai, and a whole load of other emotional trauma which I won’t mention here.

At that point in time, it crossed my mind more than once – this question –

What exactly had I signed up for?

On our fifth year anniversary, he had left me alone. Two months into our marriage, I was alone.

    Hey, you sound like you’re in a really bad state. I hope things pick up soon and please don’t think so negatively about K / your marriage. If you don’t already know, most of the times you sound (on the blog) really happy with him. Don’t let this bring you down! take care.

      Hi s. Thanks for your thoughts – I guess we are happy most of the time but him not being around now and forgetting about our anniversary just takes the cake for sucky things a husband could do. Trying to get better on my own but its harder than i thought. =(

    get some cake and feel better soon! also, don’t know if it’ll work for benjy but maybe some honey with water might help his stomach- my grandma taught me this and everytime doobie had a upset stomach we’d give him some honey and water and it always worked!

      hey D. haha cake will make me feel better but also fatter ! I’ll try that trick with benjy – he keeps spitting up his food but there’s nothing medically wrong with him. i’ll take care – and you too! =)

      hi char.. thank you =) yeah i guess we’re happy most of the time but then when it rains, it pours. everything bad seems to happen at the same time. K went on holiday with one of his groomsmen to Vietnam and BKK for a week. =(
