Goodbye Second Shift Blues

If you don’t know how much I hate Justin working second shift you can read here and  here.  Long story short, second shift sucked!

But, now Justin is on third shift! Which means he will work from 11 pm to 7 am. That means we will get to see each other every night! We have not seen each other for more than two nights a week since we got married ( and a year before that)! How crazy is that, actually we averaged seeing each other around 12 hours every week! Yes sad I know, but now it has completely changed!  We will eat dinner every night together! How amazing is that! I don’t think I have ever gotten to spend every night with Justin since we started dating! It is almost like I am not married to a police officer anymore! Kind of amazing! 
He has been with the sheriff department for almost two years! We have been waiting for him to get off second shift! And it happened! I couldn’t be more excited! 

Of course there are always a downside to life. This downside is, we don’t get to go to bed together.. except for two nights a week. Justin will get ready for work at 9 pm, and I’ll be getting ready to wind down for the night. It will be really different for a while, but that’s something little that we can get used to. ( I mean I am used to going to bed by myself, but not being by myself all night long.)

If you know me at all, I am not a quite person.. at all. And Justin will be sleeping during the days, so on the weekends, I will have to be extremely quiet! So, we will see how that goes! I need to find a quiet hobby to do! I think this will be the hardest thing to adjust to.

But, I can get over the downside, because I actually get to see my husband. We get to be real husband and wife! I am so excited!

Do you and your significant other work different shifts?
