back at it

Well, I am both happy/sad to report I am back at work again.  On Saturday we opened the Port back up after they painted and gave us new flooring.  Then they tried to replace our windows, and the bricks holding the building together started crumbling.  So, we'll see how long this lasts before they have us out again. 

You know, I absolutely love my job.  And I feel very lucky to be able to say that.  Not very many people can say they love going to work.  However, I really do.  It's exciting to learn about how interstate commerce works.  It's exciting learning about all of the laws for my state.  It's interesting and different everyday.  I love it.

However, it's still a bittersweet thing.  Namely, I now have no time with my husband.  I do shift work, JD works Wednesday through Saturday.  I have two weeks of swings (afternoon shifts), then a week of days and a week of graveyard shifts.  When I was on administrative leave, I was able to spend all of my husband's days off with him.  Now, we only have a few coinciding days off, so time spent together is in short supply. 

Last night was one of the few nights we have together, so we rented a movie and grabbed some dinner to have an impromptu date night.  While we laid on the couch watching Now You See Me (husband's choice for the rental wasn't bad!) I just felt so peaceful.  Neither of us were rushing to work, doing homework or anything else.  We were just able to be together with no demands.  It was lovely and perfect.  I longed to have more moments like that, but unfortunately  that's not possible.  Oh well, working means that we'll treasure these little moments more.

Us Circa June 2013 on our anniversary escapade


  1. My husband worked night when we were first married--and I can so related to feeling like even though you live in the same house, you hardly see each other with completely opposite schedules! Hopefully your schedules will start lining up better soon.
    I loved "Now You See Me"--sounds like a fun date night!

  2. Oh man I can totally relate. My boyfriend and I were next door neighbors for two years while we dated. I just graduated school and got a job offer in another city south of where we were going to school. Now we are both so busy with school and work that I cherish the short and sweet moments on the weekends more than ever.


Thanks for coming to my little corner of the blog world. I love you already!
