Just like Lucy
Sometime in October, my husband will be working a day shift - 8 am to 4 pm, just like regular people. It's been a long time since we had these hours. When his father came here from Wisconsin, we needed the daytime hours to take him to the doctors, and help him apply to get into the Veterans Home. Not to mention, he came here the same week, my step-daughter came down from Washington State. She needed to get plugged in, here in California. The swing shift 4 pm to midnight worked for us. We even enjoyed our late night lifestyle and sleeping in and eating our bigger meal at noon so we could eat together. We went out for breakfast and nice lunches and going out to dinner was reserved for our weekends.
Soon, he'll go off to work in the morning and I will stay home like Lucy!
It will be a BIG CHANGE for us, as well as for our animals. Laydee likes to go to bed with me, and then when my husband comes home, she goes into her crate. The cats, wait for him, by the door. I will miss snuggling with her in bed. I guess my choice is, the dog or the husband.
I'll still keep my morning gym time- I will have to start actually cooking dinner. Heck, we may even sit at our table instead of eating on the sofa, watching Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
I tend to work around the house in the evening. Now I will do this during the day. Every morning, we sit and watch the birds together. Sometimes, we talk. Sometimes we don't.
And just when I have adjusted, he will retire. (5 years to go)
