Things will be cha cha changing
The husband started working at the VA Home about 2 years ago for a day shift. Then 6 mos after that, he was hired permanently by Cal Vet and was awarded a graveyard or 3rd shift. We made due and finally made it work. He hated it more than I did. When he would start to get down about it, I would be positive and encourage him on how well we have adapted to it. (mostly me) I can't see going on and on, complaining about it. It only makes you miserable. So the good news for him is, he will be going to a swing shift at the end of August, which actually works better for him, than a day shift. 4pm to midnight with Fri and Sat off.
Of course I have always kept a day shift. Someone in this house has to be normal. I get up early, at the crack of dawn and have my alone time. Come Sept, I sure hope he sleeps in because I NEED that alone time. At least an hour preferably more. This new routine will cut into my day - and I am the one who will have the most adjusting to do. It looks like I will have even less "me" time alone.
I wish I had the money to get a studio apartment - just a place for me to go - set up a office to work.
If I allowed myself, I could feel smothered and pent up - well truth is I do feel that way because there is no place for me to be alone in my own house. It's a choice. I do get cranky more than usual.
Thank God I no longer have PMS.

I am not a naturally sweet and kind person. It takes a lot of EFFORT. My instincts are to be sarcastic and bitchy. I'm working hard...
scary If you've been following me, you would know I am not that social of a person. I used to be a social butterfly at one time...
