Just needed a little support. My Fiance has his first over night shift in the Peds unit tonight. He left at 6:15pm and will be back at 4am. I hurried home and saw him for about 30 minutes before he left, but now I really miss him.
We have been apart before for a few nights here and there, but it was when one of us was out of town, this is different, he is in town but I don’t get to sleep next to him. I know it is sappy, but I miss him and it sucks because I know that he will have more over night shifts in the future without a doubt.
But it is something I don’t really want to get use to…just want to be sappy and sleep next to him.

Ugh, I feel ya. While Fiance does not work that late, there are some nights where he’s working til midnight, 1, or 2am. I hate going to bed alone, but over time I’ve learned to enjoy having a couple nights to myself every now and then. Sometimes I do have to make every effort to tire myself out to the point where I pass out as soon as I hit the bed, not giving myself a chance to miss him. But overall, it will get better. I know you don’t want to get used to this right now, but you will. And it will make you really appreciate the nights y’all have together 🙂

My advice, go take a nice hot bath and read a good book. Ease your mind and body, and put yourself in a good place to get some rest tonight. He’ll be home before you know it!
