31 Days: Days 15-18

I know, you're probably thinking I threw in the towel.  Like maybe Jimmy did something to royally piss me off and I said to hell with this challenge?  Nope, not the case, at all.  In fact, it's quite the opposite.

I mentioned that Jimmy started on a new shift at work and that it means more and less time together, it's just different.  It seems like it's for the better, for the most part, which is awesome.  Which is why I've been a little MIA on the '31 Days' challenge.  Since our time together has been shifted it's forced me to re-prioritize.

I've been really loving the time we are together and I want to make the most of it.  I don't want to be on the computer, blogging, checking Facebook, heck I haven't even been Instagramming much lately! Shocking, I know! It's funny because at 4 o'clock today I checked Instagram for the first time since like 11 this morning and thought "WHOA!  It's been like 5 hours since I was on this last!".  I'm pretty sure that's a record, except for when I'm asleep, obviously.

Pretty sad, huh?  I mean I'm glad that I realized that the world won't end, I won't miss something awesome, if I don't check my phone once every 15 minutes.

I also did Jimmy a big favor, I moved back into Kendall's bathroom.  When we first moved into this house I "shared" a bathroom with Kendall but since that bathroom is closer to her room {and I thought that was why she was waking up so early in the beginning} I ended up moving into our master bath with Jimmy.  His once product-free bathroom quickly became bombarded with hair spray, make up bags, curling irons, flat irons, brushes, moisturizer, tampons, you name it.  He's made comments here and there about all my stuff taking over.  I know he doesn't really mind but I could imagine how I'd feel if roles were reversed.  So, this week I packed up all my girly stuff and moved back into Kendall's bathroom.  I did this for that and because now I'm usually the first one up, and in the shower, so I figured it'd be easier for him to sleep if I got ready in the other bathroom.

He was all, "What?!  You didn't have to do this!?" and I know I didn't but I wanted to because I wanted him to be able to sleep, restfully.  Plus, if we're being honest, Kendall's bathroom has more room and more storage anyway.

So, yeah, I'm just soaking up our time together the best I can.  Good news is this new schedule of him gives him 3 days off every week which means I'm looking very forward to this weekend.  This will be our first weekend together since we've been back from vacation, in August!  Isn't that crazy?  So, yeah, I might be a MIA a little while longer.
