Am I being reasonable??
(continuation to my post on Marriage Advice 6/17/07)
DH's assignment in Spain has ended because the project is over. He is now on a new assignment in another country. This assignment has him working with different co-workers from the US than the Spain project. This assignment has him gone for 3 weeks and home for 1 week. UGHH!!
Problem: His boss has arranged for a team building/conference the one week he is home. This means he flys in on Friday and back out again on Sunday for the 3 day conference in the US. I have suggested going with him as they are staying at a beautiful resort. I have researched the area and have come up with several things that can keep me busy. When I presented this to my husband he didn't seem enthusiastic. The itinerary has his day scheduled with activities from 8am until 10pm. I told him I can entertain myself, I do it now at home. He took that as a jab against him traveling soo much. He thinks management will frown upon me being there since it is a "team building" engagement. I told him they don't have to know I am there. But I would like to meet the co-workers he spends 75% of his life with. I am sure they will congregate in the hotel bar at some point during the 3 days. He also told me he hasn't meet all of the people in his organization (12-15). What does that have to do with me being there?
Is it wrong for me to want to go on this type of trip? I understand he will not be able to spend time with me.
Also, I am working on getting a passport that is why I haven't been on any out of the country trips.
