I really hate the way that mine and a Joel’s work schedules always conflict with each other. If I’m off, he’s working, and vice versa. I don’t get many days off anymore now that I’ve got two jobs and it just sucks sometimes. I’m not complaining, I love staying busy and making money, I just hate when I feel like I’m neglecting my personal relationships.
But last night we did get to go up to Orland Park while his parents watched Alaska. We had dinner at Texas Roadhouse and saw The Great Gatsby, which was excellent but definitely no comparison to the book. Nights like that to ourselves where we can just talk and enjoy being together and feel like a couple are rare, but I cherish them when they happen. I’m always reminded how lucky I am and how much I love him.
AND, I’ve concluded that I probably have celiac disease. I’ve had digestive problems ever since I had Alaska, but I’m really having issues lately. I’m starting a gluten-free diet and seeing how I feel after a month. If it makes a difference, I’ll make some permanent changes. - sigh-
