New Found Responsibilities

Its hard when you get so used to someone….for everything, and then their gone. I know that Curtis had to leave but d*mn its hard and at times confusing. Like his car broke down again (stupid car, err) and I had to get a rental car. Its as if without him my life falls apart.

Since going to Iraq last year and coming back I haven’t had any of the households responsibilities. With Curtis leaving this past weekend, they kind of got dumped in my lap. Its been interesting going through the mail to figure out which bills to pay. Learning how to purhcase my own plane ticket and rental car. I always took all this for granted because the spouse did it. But now I’m learning (slowly) how to take care of a household – even if only a temporary house with rental furniture.

    In reading all your comments, I am glad to see that you both work well together. You’re a team and marriage is a partnership where everything should be shared. Even if it’s not your total responsibility, as a woman you should always know how to do everything and be informed. Women of past generations left everything to the husband and were lost when in a position where they didn’t know how to take care of everyday family business or themselves. Hang in there, it will get easier and even though you’re married you need to keep a slight independence for yourself. I was in Washington DC last week at a conference and wished I had time to see you.
