So at my job I have the ability to choose my own hours to some degree. I take turns between having Mondays and Fridays off. I like to have Mondays off because it gives me time to recoup from busy weekends and a whole day with my hubby. He works Saturdays and most Sundays has paintball practice so time with just the two of us is precious. First before you read into that, I go to practice with him and really it has become a couples hobby. I take pictures and he plays. It is something we enjoy doing together its just not alone time ya know?
So yeah I like my Mondays, we might go shopping or do things around the house, maybe see a movie or something. But mostly we just enjoy our time together, its a low key low pressure day and I love them. Just hanging out and being with him makes me happy. We don’t have to do anything special, we just need to be together.

While we don’t have a specific day where we can spend time alone together, Jason does get the occasional day off here and there (and I don’t mean national holidays either). As tempting as it is to use those days and spend it as a family, we use those days for just the two of us. We drop E off at daycare and then we just go and hang out together. I agree with you…it’s nice just being able to spend time together even if we’re not doing anything fancy or exciting. These days, it’s the only time we have where we can devote our full attention to each other and not get distracted by a toddler 🙂
Lol – I’m the opposite. I like to have days off when it’s just me at home, so I can do whatever I want and not worry about doing something the husband wants. I like to spend time with him, but really, we don’t have kids so the evenings and weekends are pretty much just us anyway. Sometimes a girl just needs to hang out by herself.
