If you know me at all.. You know that I am not a fan of change.. 
Read this & it will help you understand how much I hate change! 
So, for almost 9 months now, Justin has had Friday’s off. He actually has Thursday’s off but he works at his other job on that day. 
Friday has been “our day” I come home from work we go out to dinner, hang out all night & stay up late. I love Friday’s not only because it means the weekend, but it means I get to see my fiance for more than 10 minutes! 
(I am sure you all know where this story is going…) 
Justin schedule has changed.. he day off now is Wednesday.. right in the middle of the week… 
Not cool.. Not cool 
Don’t get me wrong I am super happy I get to spend Wednesday nights with him, but Wednesday nights are not as relaxed as Friday nights.. Wednesday night’s don’t last as long as Friday nights..
  Wednesday nights are not Friday nights! 



So for now. I will love Wednesdays. Wednesdays will be my favorite day of the week! 
What do you do when change comes your way? How do you handle change?

  • I have never been good with change, but it does happen and we just have to roll with it. Maybe since Wednesdays can be more hectic, try slowing it down and take a walk together or cook dinner and watch a movie. My fiance and I always try to take a walk together when things get busy because it slows us down and it gives us nothing but time to talk to each other.

  • Yeah, definitely not a fan of change! Especially when it messes with my routine.

  • I feel this! Being a virgo means that I love to plan, and when wrench gets thrown in to my schedule it causes a lot of anxiety. I just have to find the positives in the situation, and remind myself to take big, deep, breaths! Hang in there girl!

  • I use to be very resistant to change, but I've had a lot of it in my life, and have learned to roll with it. Find the positive, and only focus on that. When you give way to the negative with a routine upset, it only causes more negative feelings. Let the positive in and enjoy those Wednesday nights!

  • I just changed my schedule at work where I have Wednesdays off and I love it! It's an adjustment, but it's such a nice mid-week break that makes the week go by so much faster and smoother. I can actually get a lot done on Wednesdays and it almost feels like a weekend right in the middle of my week! Embrace the change!

  • Sometimes change isn't always welcome or wanted but you have to embrace it as best as you can. Sometimes life is unpredictable and doesn't always work out in our favour but you just have to make the most of it and the time you have together. Time passes way too quickly to wallow in the sadness and disappointment, so embrace Wednesdays as your new day of awesomeness and smiles. 🙂

  • Ohh I so understand this! I am a creature of habit and once I get into a routine I like and am comfortable with it's really hard for me to change it! I hope you are able to find the same fun and comfort in Wednesdays as you did in Fridays!

  • My husband is a police officer in the Marine Corps and his schedule changes every 4 months. It rotates between morning shift (3am to 2pm), day shift (11am to 9pm), and night shift (7pm to 5am). The changes occur at the same time every years so we always know when they're coming, but it's still a huge adjustment every time. I've learned to just go with the flow and continue to support him. There's nothing either of us can do about it so it's not worth being so upset over it.

  • Aw major bummer!! Right now I only see my man every other weekend cause of the distance, so it could be worse. Make the most of Wednesday!

  • Aw I'm sorry! Change and I are not friends. I usually need my husband to calm me down when it comes my way haha. I used to have Fridays off, but now my day off is Wednesday too. There is something nice about being able to have a day in the middle of the week to refresh. I hope this new schedule turns out great!

  • ugh! friday seems perfect, but hopefully wednesday will be ok too. i actually really hate change too. i don't have any great strategies to deal with it either. i wish i was one of those people that totally embraced change.

  • I'm sorry you're losing your Fridays! I also don't adjust well to change and I can't imagine how difficult it is not having your fiance home with you in the evenings!

  • The worst was our first year of marriage–it was my first year as a teacher…super stressful and full of long hours…Justin was still a college student and he had afternoon classes and an evening shift at his job. So, we saw each other for a few moments when I woke up and left, I was able to bring him dinner at his job, and then he'd come home as I was hopping into bed. But, we made it. We reveled every hour we could together and weekends were super important

  • Aw, I am so sorry! I am not a fan of change at all. I hope things work out for the two of you!!

  • Aw, I hate change too. But I'm glad your husband does what he does. 🙂

  • Hi, Kara! Just letting you know I nominated you for a Liebster award. If you'd like to accept and pass along the love, here's all the information: http://thenestednomad.com/2015/03/28/liebster-award/

    It's been fun to get to know you through your blog! I'm looking forward to much more from you!

  • Sorry you're losing your Fridays 🙁 just means you get to make Wednesday's more special right?

  • I have to adapt pretty fast, my husbands military schedule doesn't allow me to get too comfortable

  • Bummer, I can totally see how Friday would be more ideal. Change can be so hard, it doesn't effect me a whole lot, but my husband and son hate change, so I am always sensitive to it. Enjoy Wednesdays!

  • Aww I'm sorry! I hate change too, so I understand how this is hard. 🙁 But at least you still get a night together!
    Blessings!
