Night Shift

J.R. started a new job about a month ago. It was a money-based decision that he start the new job for the most part. We would like for me to be at home with Gabriel (and any future children that we may have). We are faring alright these days. I would say that I am doing better than J.R. with the whole situation. Growing up, my father worked the night shift, so I am kind of “used to it,” if one can ever be accustomed to such a schedule. J.R. loathes working nights. Besides the fact that we would like to have family dinners and spend our evenings together, J.R. is not able to spend as much time with Gabriel during the week on this shift. Additionally, he has some worry concerning leaving us alone at night.

All in all, we are praying for a more family-friendly option to open up for J.R. – some people like working the night shift, but it is not for us.
