I realized this week that I have been spoiled by working at the same place that Darby goes to school. Every day, we ride together in the morning and walk together until I get to my office. At noon, he comes to meet me for lunch, and we drive home and back together. At 5 p.m., he comes to my office and we leave together. This week, though, he's been working from home, so I've had to drive by myself. I still go home for lunch and see him, but I miss our little 5-minute rides in the car. Then, I started thinking, "What happens when we get real jobs and leave in the morning and don't see each other until 5 p.m. or later?" I know that 's what most people do, but it seems so sad to me. I hadn't thought about how lucky we are to get to see each other so much during the day. I'm definitely going to stop taking it for granted before we have to switch to a more "normal" routine.

You're so right!!! Even now, I know that David and I get to see each other more than others do, but things are about to change due to him getting a new job. We have adjusted so far after the change from our previous jobs, but this will be another adjustment. I'm glad that you are able to realize that this will not last forever, but ENJOY it right now. Don't dwell on the fact that it won't last forever. God is giving you this precious gift of time with your new husband. Cherish every moment and when it changes, you guys have to set aside special time to make up for the difference. Sorry this is so long, just speaking from experience.
