Husband Works Nights Now

For about 4 month now since my husband started his new job, we have had to completly change or sleep time.

He goes to work at 4:00 pm then comes home at 3:00 am 4 days a week. So sleeping doesn't kick in until about 6:00 in the morning. I have alwys been an early morning person so this has been so hard on me physicaly, he's from England so it fits more on his natural born timing. 

I wake up after going to bed at 6 in the moring at about 9:30 10ish  then do my wifey thang making dinner and lunch, spend a few hours with him before he's off to work. Then after he leaves I go back to bed for a few more hours to make up for what In the morning.  Then I wake up about 7:30-8ish at night then am up until 6 in the moring. I usually get my house work done after midnight and bathe at 2 in the morning.

It all so crazy! I feel like a cave woman or a vampire now.

But can't complain because he has a good paying job that allowes me to be home and run a small home based business and be at home.

But it feels so much like it goes against nature.

: ) I guess that made it even more wonderful when something keeps you apart you begin to appreciate each other more.

There was a period when I would get home from work about 6pm and Joyce would leave for work at 8pm.She would then get home at 5am only for me to leave home at 7am.<br />
We had long hours apart but wonderful times together.
