My Lavish Life as a Doctor's Wife

My least favorite thing to hear out of people's mouths when they talk with me about my husband's busy schedule and what life is like for my family during the doctor training years is "It will all be worth it in the end."

So your telling me that when this is all over and my husband is a board certified specialist that I will saying how grateful I am that I raised our children practically single handed, that I learned all there is to know about house maintenance because I had to fix everything myself, and that I will be so proud that relationship that has grown the most from all of this the one between my mom and I through our long distance phone calls?

Get real people! Most doctors don't even make that much money!
So what would be an appropriate response to the news that I haven't spent an enjoyable evening with my husband in quite some time?

Thank You.

I'm sorry just makes me feel worse for myself.

Thank You is nice because is shows gratitude for what I am going through. This response helps me feel good about my family sacrificing in order to provide better health and happiness for others. A hug and a pat on the back with a your doing a great job would be nice too.

P.S. I'm pretty sure thank you would also be the appropriate response to a family living through a military deployment, but I haven't been in the military boat long enough to tell you for sure.
