Let me start by saying that I very, very grateful to have a husband who does the absolute most that he can to take care of his family. Byron sometimes works 50+ hours a week at his “day job” as a Database Analyst (I’m pretty sure I have his title wrong, actually. I KNOW that we works with databases though), not to mention the hours that he puts in helping people buy homes. He doesn’t “have” to work so hard. But he does anyway, so that we’re not living in the stressful “paycheck to paycheck” world. He does it so that I can care for Izzy myself. He does it so that I can grow my business. He does it so that we can retire and not worry about how our bills will be paid. So that giving Izzy a down payment on a house as a wedding gift might actually be a possibility. So that we can take a vacation next year. I love that making sure that Izzy and I are well taken care of is VERY high on his priority list.
But….can I be real with you guys for a minute?…….I miss my husband! Most days, he doesn’t get “home” until 8pm (Even if he comes home at 5, there are still emails to send, showings to schedule, documents to fax, etc). Izzy goes to bed at 9. We get up at 7am, so to get a good amount of sleep, and be well rested for the next day, we need to get ourselves to bed by 11pm. That gives us 2 hours a day with each other. Is it crazy that I want him more?! Of course, we get more time on the weekends, but a lot of times that gets limited too!
I’m happy, you know, that I even want more time with him. It could easily be quite the opposite, where I wish he would just go away, lol! And they do say that absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? I’ve noticed that since Byron started in this position, we really seem to value our time together a lot more, and we try to make sure that we don’t waste it!
How do you ladies handle not being able to have as much time with your “boo” as you would like?
