- Wedding: October 2011
I just wanted to share my exciting news with all you bees. As some of you who have read my previous posts before may know, for the past 1 1/2 years my DH has had a job with graveyard shift hours (first it was 1-9 am, then it became 12-8 am). The worst of it was that I’m off on the weekends and he is off Tuesday and Wednesdays. I’ve always worked daylight hours (8:30-5) so this has been a huge struggle throughout most of our relationship together because we have only been together almost 2 years. We have been married 4 months and our different work schedules has done nothing, but make both of us feel very depressed and alone. It was been especially tough on me cuz I have lost sleep over it. We also rarely get real quality time together cuz my Husband is either sleeping or tired most of the time. Things were really rough and for awhile it seemed like we weren’t going to work out. It was especially hard that I only got to sleep next to my husband 2 nights a week and we haven’t felt like newlyweds at all.
Well, I am so excited cuz all of that is about to change since he recently accepted a new job in an office that will be 9-5 WITH WEEKENDS OFF! He’s never had weekends off with a job before in his life! This will be a major change I know and we’ll both have to get used to spending more time together, but I know it will be amazing. We will finally have our chance to feel like newlyweds. The only negative thing about it is he will take a bit of a pay cut, but we’ll still be able to make it work with all of our bills. He will have a much bigger opportunity to move up in this job too at least.
I know there’s many of you on here who are going through similar situations or worse and I just hope that my news is inspiration for you to hang on cuz things do eventually get better!
