here we go

Funk-tastic. That is the best way to describe my weekend, me in a full on Funk. The Hubs work schedule has changed so we no longer have anytime over the weekend off together, making it even better he has been working the night shift - so he is getting home around midnight. I am more than thankful we each have jobs, a roof over our head and are in good health. However, in the light of everything occurring in the world at this time I feel immature and inconsiderate for complaining.

But it does still stink (to me in my little world). I value every minute we do get to spend together, our schedules are often varied, so the one full day we used to have on the weekend was the highlight of my week. I will get over it and we will make it work....I mean I have an excess of PTO burning a whole in my pocket, so no time like the present to use it!

Bike riding around the city isn't the same alone, after a ride on Saturday (to stock up on DIY supplies) I decided I like a riding buddy!

Ultimately I didn't feel like heading out and running about town - except to gather DIY parts. My weekend consisted of Pj's, Rain, TV re-runs, playing with Pup, far to much online window-shopping (thank goodness for restraint!) and cereal as meals! oh well, off to another work week! I hope your weekends were great!!!!

  3. Aw, I totally understand the hectic schedules :( You are so brave to ride your bike in Chicago year round- hopefully it wasn't too chilly! I love to spi, but I should really try outdoor cycling.

  4. I know how you feel - my boyfriend is spending a lot of time in LA right now for work, so I cherish every moment!! Given everything going on in the world, yes, we can feel guilty complaining... but it doesn't make it any easier!

    I want pictures of your DIYs!!

  5. That is a bummer you don't get to see your husband more often. I wouldn't be very happy about that, either. Hopefully you two can take some rides together in the future! I think you're brave to bike in the city alone! I have had several friends (who are responsible riders) get hit by cars, so I've always been afraid to go on my own.

  11. I'm sorry you and your husband haven't been seeing much of each other lately -- I think complaints are totally justified. Here's hoping you get your bike-riding buddy back soon!

  14. I totally feel for you on this. My husband works crazy hours and there were many times in past years where he worked nights for a few months at a time. It was rough! He's come home at 6am and I'd leave for work at 6:15, so we had 15 minutes together to catch up before I had to leave. I hope your schedules change soon so you can spend more time together. And I can't wait to see your upcoming DIY!
