My hubby works a labor intensive job. I work more hours but at a desk job. His job has alot of people and they have alot of options for days off. In my job it is obvious if I'm not here and I am ALWAYS at work. He however is always looking for a way to get a day off. I just feel like this makes our work ethic different. He works 4 days/10 hours shifts. I cant imagine why he would need a day off..he gets 3 off each week. His dad just had a brain hemmorage..it was a total shock. His dad is amazing and the rock of the family. He had a blood vessel leaking and it clotted itself. He is in the hospital for the whole week for monitoring. I know hubby is scared for his dad (so am I). Hubby filed for FMLA and has 90 hours of pay. He is taking off all week to visit his dad in the hospital. I think it is unnecessary. It happened friday night, so he has been there fr 4 days, today he took off so its his 5th day at hospital. It bugs me that he wont just go see him earlier in the day (which would be hard) and then go on to work. what if he uses all 90 hours and then we really need them? What if we get preg (which we are planning) or something happens to his dad and he regrets using the hours.
Right now he is using the hours because he wants to sit with his dad and I respct and appreciate that. HOw much is too much to sit with dad and miss work? They say his dad will make a full recovery and go home next week. (Hubby did loose him mom so losing a parent is real to him!!) I just dont want to regret using up all the hours..i am the planner in the family..hubby doesnt plan or save for anything. I am the worrier.
