My honey has been working like a dog! Five double shifts this week after four last week. Yay for our savings account but nay for his poor body and mind. The second, "part-time" gig is evolving into something more substantial. So it's a drain right now, but hopefully, it will give us some more options in the near future.
When J has a double he works 5:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. and then 4:45 p.m. until about 10:00 p.m., unless it's a Friday or Saturday and then it's more like 11:00 p.m. That leaves time for little else than sleep! And while it's fairy easy to get by on 4-5 hours of sleep in your 20's it certainly is not something that is sustainable long term once you hit your 30's. So he's powering though, but eventually, it will catch up!
Thankfully, we have some R&R planned for next weekend. I have a conference in OK City all week and he'll drive down on Thursday evening and stay with me. There's an alumni event that evening for our university and I want him to accompany me to it. From there, he's free of any obligations! I told him that if all he does is lay around in the hotel room, sleep, order room service and pay-per-view it will be worth it! Hopefully he can get a massage too. And I am done on Saturday, so we'll get to play a little in town before heading back home. It's only and hour-a-half south of here, but we've never been, so we're looking forward to exploring the area. Supposedly Bricktown is really fun.
