I miss my husband...

I've been with Mike long enough to not really be sympathetic to his sometimes crazy schedule because he 'signed up for this job'...but I miss him TONS when he is not following his normal schedule. He started his work week on Saturday and worked 6pm-6am(normal schedule), then he signed up for OT on Sunday from 12-5pm(so he slept at the station that morning since it wasn't worth driving all the way home), then worked 6pm-6am Sunday night...then due to an arrest he made this weekend, he unexpectadely had to go to court this morning. He got home today around noon, slept until 4pm, then left to report to work at 6pm. UGH! I don't know about you but I'm a solid 8-9 hrs per night sleeper and if I don't get it, I'm a crank. Don't get me wrong, Mike certainly has his lack of sleep/crank moments but he doesn't ever complain about going into work. Since I've known him, I don't think he's ever considered 'calling in sick' due to his lack of sleep, unless he's really sick. THANK GOODNESS for the fabulous officers that give up their sleep to keep our communities safe and allow us to get the 9 hrs of sleep we require!! I value and appreciate ALL of you!

What have I been doing since Mike is gone? Luckily I worked today so I wasn't bored without Mike. I had book club yesterday so I did a lot of reading to finish July's book and then I started August's book. I've watched a few of my favorite TV shows. Yesterday I mostly spent my time mentally decorating the house that we found online that we REALLY like and, depending on what we see when we go visit Santa Fe, hopefully will be able to purchase. And I'm not exagerrating when I tell you that I look at the 15 pictures of this house about 10 times a day. :) I'm so excited to have a house again so hopefully everything works out as we hope! :)

Sorry Kirsten. :o( Irregular schedules are yucky. But YAY!! for house hunting, and I hope that all works out for you guys. I totally get the obsessive picture viewing/mental decorating . . . dreaming is so much fun!
