Achieve a Better Work/Wife Balance

My wife made a really insightful comment the other day that really made me think. It went like this, “What is weird is you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, and then you get a job and spend most of your day away from that person.”

And it is true. Or for me it was. Most days I would start the morning kiss my sleeping wife around 7:30 and then go to work. I would get home around 6:30, spend a few hours together then collapse around 10 or so.

Sure we had the weekends together but it always seemed like it wasn’t enough.

Lately, that has changed. With my new job, Delilah and I have seen each other what feels like a lot more. We share many lunches together. Plus she picks me up from work when I walk.

I hope to one day work from home totally where I can spend even more time with my family.

To each their own! I would personally feel smothered if I had to spend 24/7 with Paul, but don’t tell him I told you that, haha. But in all seriousness, I’m pretty independent and spending time away from him to pursue my own interests and passions just makes me appreciate him more when I do get to see him… but then again, we’re not married, either. Lol. Really happy for you and Delilah! 🙂

P.S. – The Onion is awesome.

Now that I am married and have children I’m not interested in much and my passions have been quenched. Just kidding. I still think it would be cool to make a Scout Trooper costume and my passion for Chipotle will never die.

You weren’t afraid Paul would read this comment on his own? This blog appeals to the male audience.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
