|This is how we will be one day.|
The news is, mid-October the husband will start his dayshift - 8 am to 4 pm, with Wednesday and Thursday off. Then, Lord willing, 5 more years. At least that is the plan.
I am really going to enjoy this new schedule. I can't get anything done around this house when he is home. We sit around together, way too much. We've talked and talked until we almost don't have anything more to talk about. Plus because of his hours, he takes an afternoon nap. He is so into this habit, that he even takes a nap on our weekends. I usually join him (and the dog) on Saturday. There won't be any more naps during his work week now. I feel for Laydee, who has gotten quite used to this midday ritual.
So he tells me, that we'll be going to bed by 9pm. Say what? Now that is just too early, especially in the summer. I'll compromise at 10pm. We never go to bed without the other. It's just how we are. (unless we are sick)
I am a morning person, so I am actually excited for cranking up the music loud and cleaning house. I have AHD. Attention Husband Disorder. I get sidetracked when he is home, plus he always wants my attention.
I will get his "best" in the mornings. Now I will get him when he comes home from work and depending on how his day went, I'll have to remember, to not hit him up, with "stuff" until he can decompress.
I do look forward to having a more normal life - eating dinner together and having evenings off. He even mentioned, that maybe we can start sitting at the dinner table, instead of in front of the TV. Wow, what a concept!
