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.

We had long hours apart but wonderful times together.
