Daddy’s been home with me just about 2 weeks now. His job started running into financial troubles from loss of business and bounced His paycheck. They never did rectify it fully. He decided at that point it was time to leave. Unemployment has been granted, so financial stress is low. For the first time in a long time we get to spend time together!!
We’ve always been one of those couples who hates being apart. When He’s able, we do EVERYTHING together. Grocery shopping, haircuts, trips to the mall, doctor appointments, errands. We simply enjoy each other’s company so much that we don’t like being apart. We don’t get tired of one another or run out of things to say.
I see so many people talking about their frustration of being quarantined with their partner/spouse. All the statistics coming out about the post pandemic divorce rate. Makes me sad. I understand that most people need space from people in their lives for their sanity. I don’t understand not being able to do that within your home or taking walks. There’s no one I’d rather be quarantined with that Daddy!! We’re enjoying this time.
We’ve been catching up on the projects which have been waiting for there to be time for Him to help me or Him to do on His own. We painted the office/craft room together last week. Yard work is coming to completion. Heavy housework is getting done. And yes, we’re spending lots of time laughing and having fun.
I hung a magnetic Coke bottle cap dart game on the wall in our living room. One of us will walk by and pull the caps off and challenge the other to a game. So far I’m ahead! 😛 The Yahtzee game has a semi-permanent spot on the buffet by the dining room table for our frequent games. Beautiful adult coloring books and colored pencils stay close for use. We’ve been coloring together quite a bit, too.
Naps are a frequent occurrence for us both. Daddy a little more often than me. 🙂
We’ve had 80* weather for the last week, so our BBQ has been fired up daily.
Kink is always a part of our life. 😉 More now than it has been in a while. There’s time and space… we’re relaxed. Eventually I’ll write about the adventures of Natasha the Russian Spy. *giggling*
Having Daddy home feel…. right. I know things will go back to a semblance of normality again and He will have to go back to work. *pouty sigh* For now… I’m enjoying every moment of having Him home.
