I am not the only one guilty of Distance. Dragon is too.
The more applications he submits, the more time that passes without a yes answer, the more distance he puts between us. I am trying to understand. Trying to be the ever understanding wife but it is hard.
Those little things he did to show love and affection are gone for now. He is obsessed with job hunting and not much else. Oh, he does help Amber with her old truck. They are trying to get it road worthy so she can have her own transportation. I understand that.
I understand the obsession with job hunting.
I really, really do!
But I miss my kind, considerate husband. The one who helps with laundry and takes out the trash. I miss the man who loves to pamper me with bubble baths and cuddle. I miss his gentile arms and thoughtful attention.
I am trying my very best to be supportive. To be the attentive and understanding wife I should be. It gets frustrating at times and a little overwhelming. This is a huge transition for our entire family. All any of us can do is our very best.
Things will get better when he has a job. I hope.
ps. I even miss his stern looks when I mess up. I miss his firm hands giving me one last warning. Can't say I miss P very much but I do miss my take charge man.
