I have acquired a small list of pros and cons for my husband working shift work. Particularly night shifts.
*I get the bed to myself. I couldn’t stress more how great it is to be able to move freely without having to worry about whether or not I am keeping him awake. I also love that I am not awakened in the middle of the night by his snoring which resembles that of a freight train.
Yes I snore too but I couldn’t find any funnies about women snoring. ((smirks to self))
I have heard ^this a time or twelve.
*I also get total control of the remote which means that I get to watch whatever I want on TV without hearing “what are you watching?” in a “I am a man I don’t watch this crap” kind of voice. This, of course, I take full advantage of and literally save up every episode of Housewives, Nashville, and any other “girl” related show that I currently like to watch, just for when he is on night shift.
*Taking a bath without being “interrupted”. Meaning….well we don’t need to get into description here but if you are a woman with a man who sees you in the bathtub you know what I am talking about. ((blushes))
*I don’t have to share my wine…I get the entire bottle to myself!
*I can go to sleep without feeling guilty about being too tired for “that”
*It’s easier to think of “what’s for dinner” because I am only feeding the kids. Kids are easy to feed…with the exception of the teenagers who sometimes frown upon what I have made.
*I can blog, play Farmville, or any other “me” addiction I currently have without feeling culpable about it taking up too much of my attention.
*I suddenly have writer’s block…
