Assuming DH is home between 6-630. (he leaves 5:30am) and many nights he has poker, work dinners or works later.


Walk the dog, 

clean up

then TV or chess or he plays guitar and I am on the computer (same room).

Then we usually go to bed about 9 and read/talk in bed for 30-45 minutes.

During week days we are pretty boring! Come home change, head to the gym, run a couple errands, come home & shower, make dinner and watch a movie or something. We work out 5 days per week, so its nice to go together and get an hour of cardio in or weights together. Sometimes I will take a class and he will just lift weights or something, but our week days are really just work & the gym!

We are boring, too.

Fiance and I work opposite schedules. On a normal day for me I work mornings into the afternoon, and he works afternoon into night. In other words, I usually get home about an hour after he leaves for work. Our evening time is rather limited as a result. He gets home a bit before 9 pm, and we usually search online for new episodes of our shows to watch (since most shows start at 8/8:30, we have to wait till the following day to watch them together). After that, we usually go to our standby shows while we fall asleep together on the couch (old episodes of Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Community, or Modern Family).

Eventually one of us wakes up (before midnight if we’re lucky) and nudges the other one to wake up and we brush our teeth and get into bed.

Every once in a while we mix things up with a card game or meeting at a bar for a drink. This month we’re in a horror movie kick, so we’ve been watching them together on Netflix at night.

Being so close to the wedding our night have been pretty crazy.  Well, mine have been anyway.  Mon, Tues, & Thrs I go to Boot Camp.  Wed I usually run errands.  Fri Fiance and I usually go out to eat.  Weekends are jam packed with birthdays, showers, hair appts, etc.  Really looking forward to getting back to a ‘normal’ life in a couple weeks after the wedding. 🙂

Fiance and I hang out.  Lay around.  Cook dinner together.  Play on the computers.  Not too much going on in our lives.

Our nights are pretty boring too,they just run a bit later than everyone elses! DH works till around midnight if he doesnt have overtime,so I get in from college about 5/6ish, chhill out on here,watch rubbish on TV,and wait for him to come home. Then I make us dinner,we eat then go and watch more rubbish on TV in bed (gotta love late night crap TV lol) and usually fall asleep after an hour or so. It means we dont really get much “us” time when hes working,because he literally comes in,eats and we go to bed! But his days off are fridays and saturdays,and whilst Im at college all day friday and miss one of his precious days off, we make up for it on saturday lol!

Our evenings are rather boring. I get off of work at 12:30 and he works until 3:30 and is usually home around 4. We usually eat around 5 and who ever doesn’t cook, cleans up. We piddle around the rest of the evening and watch the 9 o’clock and go to bed. We have custody of our granddaughter, so we don’t get much alone time.

We have a house guest until Saturday. So things are a little crazy this week.
