Opposite Schedules...

There have been some major adjustments in my house lately. My husband was just switched to night shift about two weeks ago and ever since we have had to do some major adjusting to both of our schedules. I work from 8:30-5:30 sometimes 6:30 and he works now from 1:00 to supposedly 1:00, but more often than not he has been at work until 3AM. Needless to say we hardly ever see each other anymore.

I wake him up about 30 minutes before I go to work and we try to talk while I'm straightening my hair and putting on my face. Mostly our conversation just consists of crap that has to get done that we haven't had time to talk about. He does write me notes though before he leaves the house and we try to text throughout the day. I do miss him terribly. Unfortunately it is going to be this way at least until the end of March.

However, in the mean time I have been trying to keep myself busy with all kinds of projects, reading and obviously blogging. I am a person who needs her space every now and then, but this much space is a little too much. I think the things I miss the most when I get home from work is having someone to share my day with and someone to cook with.

I honestly have to say that I have never lived alone so this is a whole new experience for me. I have found that I take terrible care of myself. I stay up way too late and eat McDonald's more than I should. I have turned into a very lazy cook as well. I now try to find the simplest of recipes instead of being more daring and trying new things.

I am trying to look on the bright side of things. I think I am going to take advantage of this new found alone time and immerse myself in doing things I personally love to do. I am going to try to start and finish more projects and read the books I thought I had no time to read. I am sure I will continue to miss my husband, but hopefully it will make us appreciate each other even more in the end.


  1. Aww that must be really tough!!!!! I've been there, so I know..

    But really, it must be hard for both of you, not being able to see each other even in the same house:( I hope you guys can find the little time and do stuff together and enjoy each other..

    Hey look at the bright side - it's not forever! And your love will grow stronger:)

    Stay strong!

  2. Oh that sucks. But now you can blog more and I'm expecting a post a day!

  3. I like my alone time ONLY in the beginning. And, who DOESN'T love a quarter pounder with cheese???
