Short Week Syndrome

Am I the only one that is finding this short week particularly difficult?  I started out thinking "this should be easy, it's a short week".  Now I'm finally to Wednesday and I'm exhausted and I still have to work tomorrow night!  I worked last night, and was so depressed about it that I caved in and went out for drinks with friends which turned into more drinks and snacks.  I had an easier time being disciplined over the holiday weekend when I was relaxed. 
I do have some things going on at home which are distracting.  My husband has applied to have the gastric sleeve surgery and is very anxious to hear if he was accepted. This seems to be making my normally calm husband a little touchy which is in turn making me tense.  I was not a big fan of the idea at first because I'm from the school of "Eat less, Move more".  Of course you all know how well that's going for me, eye roll.  We went to a meeting to hear about the program at a local hospital and I looked around and realized this wasn't about me.  I'm 25 pounds heavier than I'd like to be, but I'm not obese or in ill health due to my weight.  I have no barrier to exercising and I don't have a food addiction.  This is not true for my husband, and after seeing how badly he wanted to do this I have come to see that this is what's best for him.  If he's healthier and happier, than I will be too.  I have always worried about his health, and have had concerns about losing him. 
In the mean time, we wait to hear if or when things will be happening.  I am very nervous, and worry if this really is the right thing to do.  In the end as adults in relationships we have to realize when our partner is going to do something with or without our blessing.  If I should come to want some sort of face lift surgery in the future I wouldn't want him to tell me no because he thinks I don't need it.  Well, of course he should say I don't need it, but then support me all the same!  I guess that's what a relationship is all about.  I am going to try to be more sensitive to his feelings and at the same time not sooth my ruffled feelings with food and wine.
