Just A Little More Time

ThatManILove came home late yesterday afternoon after working 36 hours in the field at one fell swoop.  He was exhausted.
He’s been leaving here around 4 a.m. on Monday mornings, and heading 2.5 hours away to work in the oilfield.  He’s on location most days by 6:30 or 7, then making it to the hotel around 11 at night.  He’s not getting much sleep, after doing reports, etc.
And then, when ThatManILove comes home, there’s always something to do around the house.  We’re unable to see our friends much, because we barely have any time together - usually less than two days.  We’re close to getting finished with the remodel on the house. Maybe then, he will be able to come home and just rest and relax.
Someday soon.
Someday, soon.

Poor guy is working his tail off! I hope he gets some much needed rest soon! Sounds like it's going to be time for a nice quiet vacation where all you do is lay on the beach, read, nap and not tell anyone where you are!

It's not easy working away from home. I know that I have to make sure I squeeze everything I can out of my time off. Many times, it means just getting things done around the house. But, I always make sure that I spend as much time as possible with TWIL. :) Hopefully your projects will be over soon. Then, at least a day or two of relaxing. But, you know how the oilfield is: you gotta get it while you can!

Hang in there! That sounds so tough. I hope things get better soon, and you get some much needed quality time.

36 hours! That is insane. Even my 9 hour shift almost kills me.. He really is a tough dude!
