It was just another day when my husband planned to be home. Last night, I strongly suggested that he may want to go into his office and catch up or get ahead, while things were relatively quiet with his job. It is between terms, and the students are gone for another week or so. Once the new term begins, things get a bit crazy.
This morning, it looked as though he were going to stay home. Thank goodness, around mid-morning he remembered some correspondence that needed his attention. It is not easy to ask your life partner to just go away…to stay home another day. Just not today.
