it's a crazy life...

so for those of you who aren't aware, scott & i work totally opposite schedules during the week. my schedule is 8-5, and scott's schedule is 2-10:30, so during the week we only see each other for roughly a total of 4 hours at the MOST. lately scott has been working till 2 am every night doing some overtime, so i haven't had the chance to see him very much.

it's a crazy life, but it's our life for now. obviously i wish i got to see him more then i do, but we get to have all weekend, every weekend together and we always have fun. today i was thinking about how even during the nights when we aren't together, i still feel like i share my night with him. how you ask? EMAIL!! we email each other when i am still at work, and then when i get home i email him at work till he gets home, or till i go to bed. he tells me about his night, and all the funny/stressful things that are going on, and i tell him about the things i am doing at home. it's our little way of sharing the night together. it may be geeky and/or techie, but it's what we do and i like it. i really don't know what i would do if i didn't at least get some time with him at night to talk to him, i would feel so lonely!

it's funny how you can make things work for you, that whatever you have to deal with or overcome, you just make it work. scott and i improvise what time we have to spend time together, whether that is me driving home on my lunch break to have lunch with him wednesday through friday, or him running up to bed to kiss me goodnight, and chat for a minute or two at 2:30 in the morning, even though i am half-way coherent, we make it work. i look forward to the days when we don't have to be a part so much, but for now, it's what we have and i wouldn't trade it for the world.

you'd be surprised how hard you can work at a marriage when its your only option! nate and i worked shifts like yours, when we had 2 kids! i was working nights at chili's, he was working days at LWCC, and also working a second job at night! God is so good to bring peace to a marriage that needs it most! :)
