For the entirety for our married life, (6 years!!!) Riley has not had a normal 9-5 job. When we met he worked at an in between house for juvenile offenders, from then on he has been in the medical field, of sorts, which of course have always been open 24/7. We've always had to worry about whether he was going to work on Thanksgiving or Christmas. He ALWAYS worked Saturdays.
I am not complaining. We are grateful for the jobs he has had. But we are SSSOOOO grateful that he only has 2 more days in a job like that!!! On Thursday he starts a 9-5 job, getting to basically pick his own hours and can sometimes work from home! What?!
Here's to Thanksgiving AND Christmas with my husband for the first time EVER!!!
I suspect there will be a lot more of this going on.
