I love my husband to death, I truly do, but since he's been laid off he's been driving me nuts, and I'm sure he feels the same way about me!
My husband and I are opposites in every way; I'm an introvert, he's an extrovert. He is go, go, go, I am stay, stay, stay. He is persnickety, I am relaxed and easygoing. This typically works, but since he's been home we're driving each other up the wall. The majority of the day he runs around like a chicken with he head cut off saying, 'I'm bored! I need a project! This is boring!'
He has a FOURTH interview with the same company on Monday, so fingers crossed!
My husband was unemployed for about two years....I worked from home full time for one of those years. We were together 24/7. Since the first few years of our marriage had a lot of time apart ( deployment, military training, etc) we didn't mind although man, sometimes, I could have cut him and not thought twice.
No, I couldn't. His work schedule is 30 days on the boat and 15 off. We spend the 24/7 with each other for about 2 weeks before he goes back to work. When he first gets off, I am so happy to be able to touch him and see him. A few days into him being home, I have a harder time dealing with him. I have asked him to sleep on the couch because I am used to sleeping in our bed alone. He understood and had no problem with it that he expressed.
