.....'cause I sure haven't! His new job has been quite an adjustment (we are blessed and praising the Lord, though!)....he leaves in the morning between 4:30-5:00 AM and the only times this week we have crossed paths was at Middle School Open House, Elementary Open House, church and church....each time in separate cars and spent a total of 3.17 minutes having an actual conversation. He has worked an average of 13 hours a day. Seriously.
I can't help but wonder if this is going to be a permanent thing? Can I tell you it's doing nothing for the romantic side of our relationship....we are strictly on survival mode, only essential information is exchanged that is necessary for our family's day-to-day existence. I miss him! We won't even get to see him until Saturday night because he's helping to lead an ATV trip for church and he'll be out the door again by 5am tomorrow morning!
Last year it was so hard to get used to not working together anymore after 6 years of owning our restaurants. But, that was when he was gone a mere 9 hours a day, not 14 hours including round-trip travel time! I don't just call him my best friend because that is what a wife is supposed to say, he really is! We have fun together, encourage and inspire one another.
I'm feeling a date night coming on.......
