The Cafe The Cafe

could you handle only seeing your DH/SO for 2 - 4 hours in a day?

meaning your SO works all day, you spend that amount of time in the same house (wether it is eating, spending time together or doing your own thing) and then to bed.

The month of May is the Nerofibromatosis awarness month. 

One of the major signs are cafe au lait spots (flat brown spots on the skin).

Please research this disorder! 

I have this disorder myself.

We do handle that! Lol. Dh works days and i work evenings. When i get off he is usually asleep so other than a quick snuggle in bed we hardly see each other during the week.

I have been handling it for many years. It definitely sucks but it is the life we lead.

 Well, I have no choice. If we want to keep that roof over our head and food in our belly, that is our reality. My husband did not get one day off last summer between the 4th of July and September 1st. It is what it is...

Lauren gets off work at 5, home by 5:30 or so and its a whirlwind of dinner, bath, homework, lunch packing and bed. She never stays up past 9:30 or maybe 10, so if we get an hour to ourselves during a week day its a miracle.

I have lived that way from time to time.  Nothing wrong with it.  I support my dh's career 100%. It is 365 days a year pretty much. He has always  worked long hours, had a 30-45 minute commute each way some places.  Now with 10 more years till retirement he doesn't work as long at work but always comes home after a 10-12 hour day and works more from home and works weekends at home.  Many work opposite shifts and only see each other on weekends.  You do what you have to do to make it.  I know many that did this when the kids were small so little or no day care costs.  I applaud them for doing it.  I don't like it when someone won't work because they won't see their husband etc. even though they really need money.

I do that any way he works 11-12 hours a day he gets home.close to 8 pm we go tto bed a 10pm that's it 2 hours... I love when he gets Saturday and Sunday off. But most times he's just off on Sunday.

Oh, 3rd year of marriage he became an auditor. He was home only every other weekend and sometimes I only saw him one weekend a month. We did this for 3 years. You do what you have to do. If you want to get ahead you have to make sacrifices. We moved 9 times also.

Sometimes I see df less than that in a day. He leaves by 5, home around 6 or so and some nights in bed by 7:30/8:00

That's been how it is almost 3 years. He's working and in school. Before he was in school and I was working and in school. Before that he worked 2 jobs. That's what we've had to do to make ends meet. It's a lot better now though. He's almost done with school.
