working out (if he was still at work I wouldn't be as upset - but the fact that he's doing stuff just for him pisses me off).
He texted me that she was sleeping, I ended my call with my mom and went home and we talked and talked and talked about it. We came to the conclusion that I need to get some time alone on the weekends (during the week is a bit difficult) and I need to be better at communicating that. We compromised on some things...we're going to try having him come home straight from work and help me out and then go back out to the gym. Now this will mean that we may not be eating together at night and I may be going to sleep alone, but it's only temporary until the race is over (in July). I respect that he really wants to do the race this year (it'll be his 5th) and he wants to be able to finish (it would be horrible if he started the race and couldn't finish). Our other compromise was the purchase of a jogging stroller. This way on the weekends, he and Jenna can go for a run and I can have some time alone - kill two birds with one stone - he gets a workout and time with Jenna and I get some time alone. I think it'll be worth the $400 price tag. And who knows, maybe I'll even start jogging with her too!
I guess we'll be forever trying to figure out this balancing act of parenthood, marriage and individuality!
