Jeff has been working long hours, yes, but more than that, he has been thrust head first into a new position without a line. Thankfully, the project manager on the job he is working on as Superintendent (even though he just moved into an assistant superintendent position without experience) is personable, supports Jeff in his new position, and is encouraging. Still, learning a new job, on-the-job, without a 'trainer' can be exhausting, and is exhausting.
My hours at work haven't changed but my responsibilities at home have increased plus I've been visiting a physical therapist for persistant headaches and neck and shoulder issues so I'm exhausted and struggling with life.
Time together is scarce.
But, we make the most of it when we get those few hours on a Friday evening, sharing a meal and tons of conversation.
And I'm thankful.
