I feel like a bad girlfriend
I have had to bail on almost everything we had planned over the next few months because we are short-handed at work and I feel guilty about asking for a few days off.

I was supposed to go to his son's graduation in a few weeks and I may have to miss that I was also supposed to drive him to the airport (2 hours one way) in San Antonio in the middle of October. Finally, I may have to miss meeting the other kids I have not met yet because he wants to go November 10th-15th and we are still in the middle of our busy time at work and I am afraid to ask for it off.

1. I understand your predicament
Let him know how you feel.
Make the most of the time you do spend together.
Celebrate with him any milestones that bring you closer to the end of your busy time.

2. I think he understands
I am going to talk to my boss about November. I might still be able to take off that week.

3. Maybe you should cut yourself a break. It'd be kinda hard to be a good girlfriend
without your job.
