She Said: “The Road Warrior”

February 12, 2010 by  


HER thoughts to HIS version are in pink:

Here’s to hoping that Kat doesn’t also have a “skewed” view of business travel.

Was I (a) hanging in a hottub each day and (b) closing bars each night, or was I (c) stressed out and working until midnight?

(a): Probably not; unless you were nude. I know you didn’t bring your bathing suit.

(b): I know you did that at least one night; you were visiting the largest beer distributer in the world (!). Umm… Hello? I wasn’t born yesterday.

(c): I believe it was 11 pm; I wouldn’t know because HE NEVER CALLED ME THAT DAY. What I do know was that I was up from 1:30 am til 5 am that same night with 50% of our kids.

Will Kat do the “handoff” tonight, as if I was on vacation for a week and I “deserve” to do all of the bedtime chores?

Will there be a huge pile of laundry and/or dishes in the sink?

Am I digging myself a huge hole by even writing this post?

Editor’s Note
: Of all the business trips HE has taken, I felt a smidge sad for him at one point, where something almost became a disaster. But since it worked out really well, my last “Yep” should be heard loud-and-clear. I was working the whole time, too
! And not just taking care of the kids. Working-working!

    I can agree that it’s your hubby’s turn to help out with the kids….but maybe it’s just me but I don’t agree that he should have to do the laundry and the dishes for when he wasn’t even there. Road trips for a business trip are not really fun. Usually the hotel is uncomfy and you don’t sleep well without your spouse next to you. At least that’s how I feel when I’ve had to go away on business. Sorry you got stuck at home. Shame on him for not calling at all though, bad bad husband!


  2. I’m dying to know… did you do the handoff Kat? Did you get some sleep?

    They always see things so differntly, don’t they?

    Thanks for your thoughtful comment on my recent post at Theta Mom. I’m thinking a time management post would be good, I’m going to think about drafting one…

    There are so many people who follow on twitter but either don’t interact often, tweet or have relevance to me as well. I block those that are spammy, but also those that end up not logging in for months at a time also get unfollowed. This does take time and effort to “clean up.” However, you begin to find a group of those who you tweet with often and these are the relationships you work on building. Those are the peeps I was referencing in my post.

    I would love to be a Top mama, too but it is literally a full-time job that doesn’t pay like a full-time job! But, I keep at it because it truly brings me joy and it makes me write, something I’ve always loved.

    Bahahhaha…I can totally relate to this post!! Except ours are deployments, TDYs, and training. You better believe there is always a hand off and I will ALWAYS question if the “training” in New Orleans was real. Even if it was I guarantee he had a better time then me. HAHAHAH


  5. Ah, the hand off. He should be glad for those extra moments with his children.
