work or husband?

hi all! well, i just want to know, which would you choose or put first? work or husband? i will give you a scenario. you work at home and work nights. but your hubby needs to sleep early because he works early too. would you stop at what you are doing and join him in the room and wait till he falls asleep? well for me, i do that. except in some instances that i need to rush things. but even if i am rushing, i will still spare a few minutes to figuratively "tuck" my husband to bed and bid him good night. i think that would show him that he is my priority and not my work. i will just take it as a time to relax as well and get my mind off work even for just a few minutes. we also need a short break sometimes in order to work faster. this system has worked for me. what do you think about this? what would you do in this situation? take care all and God bless you! have a merry christmas! :-)

Well my dear Spoiled! I really appreciate what you are doing. I would like to know which place are you from. If you are not from India, i would further appreciate you. I am from India, & we Indians feel that only Indian women are doting & over caring for their husbands / kids / family. For us family comes first, its always a priority above all other things in the world. Nothing holds a higher priority than family. Friends however are close tooo. they'll have the second place. Had i been in your place, i also would have done the same thing. You definitely need to take care of your husband's needs & at no point of time should make him feel ignored or neglected. Work remains at its place but nothing shd be above family. After all, home is where we all belong to. Mental peace has got a direct relation with your personal life !! Good Going buddy ! God Bless :-)

hi there. i would also do the same. our husband needs our care and attention. in the midst of our busy schedule, its really good to spare a good amount of time with husband and family. work will always be work. but quality time with family is priceless.

There is no need delibrating on the issue, you need you home to be intact before you can actually enjoy work work, if you got trouble at work your husband can be there as a solace but if you got trouble at home, your work can not fully help you out, it can temporary keep you busy for a while but the vacum will catch up with you. Treat your "responsible" husband with care more than you work.

[i]Hi spoiled, I will do the same, I will let my hubby feel that he is really my priority...This time, I am a full time housewife and even if I still want to work online night time, I will be with him in the bed since he needs to sleep early![/i]
