No Big News
It is not that there is nothing significant going on, there is lots, but I am not ready to talk about any of the important things things happening in my life. So I will post about blather instead.

My husband went away on a business course this week. I used to think that I was a capable independent woman. I can handle stuff. You stick me in a clinic I have never been in before and put a patient in front of me I can do (in most cases) a decent interview and physical exam, even have a good idea of what might be going on. In a week I am going away to a city I barely know, to a hospital I have never been in to do my first clerkship elective and I will handle it. I am the queen of handling it. At least that is what I thought.

I don't think I take my husband for granted. I thank him all the time for all the stuff he does around the house and tell him how much I appreciate when he listens to me rant about school or traffic or politics.

But he has been away for two days and I am already struggling under no longer being part of a couple. Maybe I am not suppose to say this as someone who thinks of themselves as a feminist, but I really depend on my hubby. After all, does anyone really enjoy doing their own laundry. Now I have to wash the dishes myself after making dinner, and there is no one but me to feed the crying cats at 6 in the morning (don't they realize it is Sunday and I was out till one last night). Division of duties is not just an efficient way to set up an automobile factory, it makes my life a lot easier.

I sure hope he deals better when I am away on electives. I can't actually remember the last time he cooked. I just hope he doesn't starve to death, or give himself liver failure from too much space cheese at Tubby Dog.

It really is quite something how we learn to depend on our men. Trevor truely is my "other half". Then you add a kid to the picture and being single is but a distant memory. It's all good though.
