Most of you know I've worked with my husband for the past seven years ... until now.
Yep. Seven years.
Seeing each other every day for seven years!
Many people asked how we could work with each other over the years, being husband and wife. My answer was always about how easy it was and questioned if their spouses were jerks. I just never understood the concept of NOT being able to work with your spouse, the one person you've devoted your life to. Weird.
He was my boss. He was my husband. And, he was good at being both.
We never really had any issues at all. I did cry a couple of times, but, let's face it, that would have occurred with anyone.
He did tend to be a little harder on me than others, on some things, but that was expected because of our relationship. I dealt with it. But, I was such an awesome employee, he didn't have much reason to get upset with me.
Now that we don't see each other every day, I miss him.
I miss him a lot.
There's always a certain point during some part of my day that I have a little ache in my heart.
Yep. Mushy, I know. But, I miss him.
The good news is that when I come home from a long day of work and he comes home from a long day of work, we connect even better now than we did before. Not just as husband and wife, but also as a family (minus the days the girls have their countless number of activities, then it's every man for himself). We spend more time together in the evenings than we did before. We can each talk about work without me saying, "I'm not on the clock or at work now," or "Can you tell me this at work tomorrow?" Now, we both listen.
But, yeah ... I still miss him.
The new job is going pretty well. I'm continuing to learn more than I ever cared to know about real estate and such. That's for darn sure!
So, while I'm liking my new job, there will always be things I miss about my old job. The main one being ... my sweet hubby.
I love you, babe. You were a great boss!
Don't get too excited ... this doesn't mean you can boss me around at home now.
