So...I think I already mentioned that the hubs overlooked my birthday. All in all, not a huge deal, but it hurt my feelings. Especially after it became obvious that he had time to order things for himself online (sent here to the house, go figure) and talk to his old bartender.
Silly me, I thought it would be a good idea to let him know that my feelings were hurt. Boy, was I wrong! He flipped. He got defensive (par for the course, really) and then mad at me for even bothering to mention my feelings. He actually blamed me for him almost getting killed twice that day because he was distracted. Wow. That's a helluva thing to say to someone.
I understand life is tough for our soldiers, especially while deployed. Is it too much to expect that they realize life is tough for us, too? I don't have a whole lot of expectations from him, really. Mostly because there's not much that I can't handle by myself. But come on, I'm not supposed to feel as alone as I physically am. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. But I don't think I am. This whole thing definitely has me feeling a bit discouraged about the near future.
