I am craving some routine right now. My husband started working third shift and it’s been an adventure so far. I’ve been trying to cater to him while I’m home, because this is a big transition for him. I’m trying to help him out as much as possible. Now that we’ve got a couple of nights under our belt, it’s time to get a routine going. My husband’s schedule changed to third shift Tuesday-Friday and Saturdays he works at 6:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. We just keep telling ourselves this is temporary. If anything, this change has brought us closer together. We really cherish the couple of hours a day that we get to see one another while he is awake and I am home.
Now it’s time for the confession. I have to confess that I have been feeding my emotions the past two evenings. I would get home from work, eat dinner and then say “good night” to my husband, who would then take a 3 hour nap before his shift started. I just wanted to get out of the house, to avoid waking him, so I went to my mom’s house. Big mistake! By the time that I got to my mom’s house, they were done eating dinner and there were leftovers. Mom’s home cooking leftovers. Of course I had a plate. So basically, the past two nights, I have had two dinners. I am realizing it, confessing it, and moving on. I am not going to my mom’s house tonight. I am going to start working on a routine, instead!
