At least that's the way it seems to me. Tom has been working second shift most if not all of this summer. Usually 6 days a week. Doesn't leave much time to spend together doing fun things. On his only day off, Sunday, we use to go on adventure rides as I call them. Now we spend them catching up on yard work, weather permitting.
We did have a nice 5 day get away this summer, but it seemed to end to quickly for my liking. Wish it could have lasted longer. Maybe it's because I'm retired ~ well, mostly anyway. Sometimes they paper calls me in to fill in for someone who is on vacation or has called in sick or has a sick child. In fact I worked yesterday because the gal I was filling in for had no sitter and knew she wouldn't, so this was set up quite some time ago. A little extra spending money is always nice. But with Tom working 2nd shift and me working days, I only see him if I wait up for him to come home. That's what I'm doing tonight...he should be here around 1:30AM....overtime!
A storm blew in earlier tonight with lots of heavy rain, thunder and lightening. I love thunder storms but am not allowed to enjoy them as in the past. I have these 2 four-legged fur kids who do NOT like thunder and lightening. As a matter of fact they are now smart enough that when it begins to rain they predict thunder and lightening by following me around where ever I go, including into the bathroom! I comfort them as best I can and reassure them that everything will be fine and I am here and won't let anything happen to them. I hope they're around long enough to return the favor to me when I get too old to walk around safely!
