It's times like these that I miss those happy pills!

Just saw my husband off.  He's on his way back to the Netherlands.  I'm off to Qatar on Sunday, making a trip through Copenhagen first.  We're hoping that we'll get to see each other for Christmas - either in DK or in Qatar or in somewhere in between.

This time watching him leave today was much harder than 8 weeks ago.

Two reasons:
1) Last time I knew exactly when I'd see him again (give or take 24 hours, as it turned out)
2) Today I have PMS

It's completely unfair to have PMS when your loved one leaves.  Especially when you are prone to weepiness and melancholia.  At least I won't be laid low by cramps until at least Thursday.  My stomach is upset enough with stress and dismay as it is.

I'm certainly going to write a strongly worded letter to my congressman.

Just as soon as my heart stops going plop-a-thump, my stomach unclenches, and I can stop grinding my teeth.


  1. Oh my, yes, I would be pretty sad too, if I had as nice of a husband and liked him a lot and was leaving for an extended working trip!

    Well, I hope you will have Christmas together.

  2. Too bad you're not here for Halloween. I was sort of looking forward to a pumpkin pie... :-)

    Hope you'll be able to do some blogging from Qatar - and that you'll manage to find a nice place somewhere between Doha and Amsterdam to meet up for Christmas.

    Have a safe trip!

  3. I don't envy you at all being separated from your husband for so long! If I were you I'd be in the middle of the biggest pity-party.

  4. Courage to you. PMS is a rough one.


  5. Oh...I'm sure that is so hard. It can't be easy ... and when it is "that time," things are magnified so much. I hope you get to see each other soon. Have a safe trip.

  6. I sympathize! Hopefully you'll be too busy in Qatar to miss him too much.

  7. Just focus on all the dirt you get to play in when you get to Qatar...that will make you very excited!

    Here´s hoping that Jul brings you and your dane back together !!!!


Keep it clean, don't be mean....
