Today I can give my wholehearted attention to my husband. He works nights as a correctional officer and I work days as an insurance agent. Most of the time, we are just passing by each other. Our schedules keep us apart many days at a time. This week has been a strange one though. We have two cars, but one of them (the one he takes to work) broke down. The transmission is going and has to be replaced. My parents, with whom we are very close and work together with to solve many problems...

Today I can give my wholehearted attention to my husband. He works nights as a correctional officer and I work days as an insurance agent. Most of the time, we are just passing by each other. Our schedules keep us apart many days at a time. This week has been a strange one though. We have two cars, but one of them (the one he takes to work) broke down. The transmission is going and has to be replaced. My parents, with whom we are very close and work together with to solve many problems, are also having problems with one of their vehicles (the fuel pump went). Now, my mom and I work for the same company, so most of the time we carpool to and from work. When the transmission went on my husbands car, my mom and I switched things around and took her car for a while while my husband drove mine. But then her fuel pump went and we were down two vehicles at once. In order to accommodate our situation, my husband has taken some time off work until we get the car fixed. It sounds crazy, but this has allowed us to spend time together that is rare. We don’t often get to talk face to face, or go to bed together, snuggle, listen to music, or cook together. All of this “unfortunate” stuff that happened and made things challenging, has also been a small blessing in disguise. So today, I will give my husband some wholehearted attention and do some of the things that he likes to do with him (like playing Minecraft)!
