My husband has a rotating schedule. One week, he works 2 days, the next week, he works 5 days. On his “days off” during the week, he works like a maniac! I don’t know where he gets his energy from, but he gets a ton of stuff done while I’m at work. It amazes me.
Todd will create a schedule of things he wants to get done on his days off. He is very particular about trying to keep in-line with his schedule. 90% of the time, he is on time based on his “to do list.” He does more in one day than I do in 6 months!
That being said, I don’t know if Todd could ever retire. He is one of those people who cant take a day and just lounge around more than twice a year. He is always up doing something. No wonder his muscles hurt all the time!
Sometimes, I feel like I have to keep up with him on my days off. Usually, on the weekends that he works, I try to do all the grocery shopping, bake a few meals for the week, pick up a little (not much – I hate cleaning,) take care of the animals and do as much of the yardwork as I can handle. The other day of the weekend…I do NOTHING! I like to stay in my jammies, watch movies all day, read, play with the critters and eat! So relaxing. And I don’t apologize for it one bit!
