Does your SO work overnight?

My S/O does.. and I hate it!! I don't like being home at night by myself!! If your s/o does work at night what do you do to keep yourself sane? I'm just use to him being here with me :/ But I'm grateful that he is working because we do need the money!

  • Mine used to when we first started our family and it was not fun. Now he works first shift and leaves the house at 4:30 am. I love to read and crochet so that's how I pass my time :)

  • Mine does too.
    He's worked 36 hours straight before.

    We have trouble in our marriage, so it doesn't really bother me. Keeps him out of my face lol

  • My husband doesn't work over nights on a regular "schedule"/basis. BUT he does spend about a week a month (sometimes more/less) out of town/state. The longest he's been gone so far was 2 weeks and that was over 300 mmiles away. The shortest he's been gone was for 24 hours straight and he was only about 4 hours away. He'll be gone most of next week. What sucks is he gets anywhere from 2 weeks to one day notice that he's leaving.

    Do pass the time i spend the day with the baby. Then the boys come home fro mschool and we do homework. We all they spend some time with the baby. I cook and clean during this time. Then after they go to bed, I watch movies that hubby won't watch LOL. I call this my "girley" time :) I also use the time to clean things that I can't clean while hubby is here.

  • My DH leaves at 7pm and gets home around 8am. I don't sleep much at night on the nights he works. I just keep the hours he does. My son and I do alot of the house work together. I am on CM alot for this reason. It doesn't bother me though.
