Days off No husband

Why is it, when you finally get time-off from work you don't get any time to spend with your husband?
I had booked a table for dinner tonight to celebrate Graham finally getting out of that awful company and starting in his new job, because he said he wasn't having a leaving do. But I had to cancel the booking because he changed his mind.
I guess it was very stupid of me to think he wouldn't prefer to hang out with that mob.
Let's face it...I've spent years trying my very best to make each member of my household feel special whenever they have acheived something or on their birthdays, knowing full well that I would be seriously lucky to get even a birthday card but I still make the effort.
Did you know some husbands still take their wives out on dates?.........It's true, one of Graham's workmates takes his wife out to dinner and the cinema....seriously....every couple of months he takes her out. Lucky cow.
I will in total get one whole day with my husband on the four days I have off, why 1 I hear you ask, simple, you have to discount saturday and sunday morning because he doesn't believe in getting up till midday.
Now I know my dear friend didn't get to see her husband for several months, but I know he showered her in love and spent tons of time with her when he got back.
He wonders why I get a little upset when he has a go because I get miserable when he goes out, but if he stood back and looked at the bigger picture then maybe he could see that he puts more effort and priortiy on his workmates than he does us.

Sorry to be so down, I'm off my moan-box now.
