“I didn’t sign up for this!” I am sure we have all said that at one point. Maybe it was parenthood, a job you “thought” you knew the description of or just a crazy day you couldn’t get control of.
That’s what Travel Thursday is all about! Figuring out how to celebrate, enjoy and occasionally vent about where the crazy situations we find ourselves in have us at the moment.
When I got married my husband was in school full time studying to be a classically trained chef. This sounded GREAT to me. I am not a great cook, get overwhelmed by the grocery store and thought it would be great to have a guy that wants to be in the kitchen, what a perk!
I never really thought through what it would be like AFTER he graduated. When he had to get a job. Most chefs work long hours, at night and most weekends. They don’t receive benefits, are not salaried and their schedule changes week to week.
Imagine my excitement when after almost a year of unemployment Steve found a job that included benefits and a monthly guaranteed income. Party at our place…almost.
The job also included 20+ days away from home per month. With a toddler and baby on the way this did NOT sound ideal!
Join us next week for the rest of the story…but in the mean time…
Does your spouse travel?
Do you spend a lot of hours alone?
