Well this sucks

You know how if you get married in college, you have to realize that you're probably never going to see your spouse? Well...Mr. Schroeder and I didn't experience that right at first. I took a 2-year break from school (stupid? No, I actually don't regret it at all), moved to Virginia Beach, and took a few adventures prior to settling down. We bought a home and I decided to go back to school. Trevor finally decided that he'd like to take some classes for fire school prerequisites to see if it's something he'd like to do. I know I mentioned it before, but he is taking 20 school credits and working 50-60 hours a week. His grades are phenomenal and he's a bit of a rock star. 

I'm currently full-time and work as well. Moral of the story? We got used to spending half days together for three years, and now we never see each other. And by never...I really do mean never. Trevor usually gets home when I'm already in bed, and one of us leaves prior to the other person getting up. It is one of the hardest things ever! I don't even have kids for him to help me with, but at times, I feel like he's my room mate that just sleeps in the same bed.


I have never been more ready for a semester to be over. HOW DO YOU STUDENTS SLASH MARRIED FOLKS DO IT? I hate it.

 (PS, I'm writing this at 3am and just sad cause I miss him)

  1. I die a little every time he goes to do homework. :(
    We have a little boy, and I don't even go to school, but the school year kills me. There really is no easy way to do it, people just keep telling me its a time in our life that we have to push through, but sometimes it feels like it will never end.

  2. We make it a priority to see each other and spend time together first. We go to the same campus and my work is pretty flexible, but I always plan my work schedule around his school schedule and we'll try to have classes around the same time. I'll stay later on campus to wait for him to get out so we can drive together too. Good luck, that's crazy!

  3. I really am all too familiar with the feeling! We actually started with opposite schedules as we were dating and about a year into our marriage. We found different ways of being able to connect, since I'd be gone in the morning or asleep before he came home. Now our schedules have aligned a bit more but then we'd have lunch dates, even if it was only during a 15 minute break. At one point my hubby started getting up a little earlier and he was making me breakfast... We still text (a lot) so that we don't feel like we don't know whats going on with each other. I agree that it's hard though.Hang in there!! Hope you all find something that works for ya'll.
