This may just be a bit of preggo emotions, but I'm so sick of doing everything myself, and feeling lonely.
Husband(who is in the Army) is never home, every weekend he spends every night at a friend's house, playing video games and getting too drunk to drive home, so I don't see him until sometime the next morning when he sobers up and comes home. Half the time during the week, he's over at the same friend's house, but at least he's not drinking then. I get yelled at for not doing any housework(mind you I am 34 weeks pregnant, and it's getting hard to do anything that requires bending or standing, I do what I, and my body can tolerate), yet he'll come home, change his clothes, and leave them laying all over the house.
The lawn needs to be mowed, the dog needs a bath, the litter box needs to be changed, and I have a clothesline (that needs to be put up in the back yard this week so I can hang up the diaper covers I need to get washed for the baby) and yet he hasn't even attempted any of that stuff, and I can't do any of it myself. After I reminded him once again that I needed the clothesline put up this week(he's going out for a field exercise on Saturday, and won't be back until June 30th) he asked me when I was going to get to the housework. I just went to the bedroom and laid there crying after he said that. I'm trying my hardest to do what I can.
He says he's getting his partying out of his system now, before the baby gets here, but I don't believe him. Having a 6 year old at home already doesn't stop him, why would a baby?
Adding to all of this is the fact that DH has orders to go to Korea in December, he's been doing most of this ever since he got those orders. I know he's depressed about having to leave for a whole year(as am I), but geez, I need him at home right now, hell, I just need him, and he refuses to see it(or listen when I try and tell him this).
Ugh..I hope this is just pregnancy emotions getting the best of me.
