I won't take too long to complain, but let's just say I haven't seen hide nor hair of my husband since Sunday night. Here is our schedule Monday-Wednesday of this week:
Monday: Nancy worked from 8 am to 6 pm while Andrew stayed at home and did...something. I'm not sure what. They rendezvoused at 6 pm, getting ice cream with the $4 from selling a textbook back (lame...$4!). Nancy went to have dinner with Emily and Esther, some girls who went to Russia with her (and their husbands). Andrew went to work.
Nancy got home at 8:30 pm and entertained herself until bedtime.
Andrew got home from work shortly after 2 am and didn't wake Nancy up. What a good boy!
Tuesday: Nancy worked from 8 am until 3:30 at which time Andrew picked her up to take her home so that he could work from 4:30...until 2 am. Nancy invited Andrew's younger siblings over for dinner so that she wouldn't have to be alone all evening. They had a night of fun and games, but Nancy was eventually left all alone once again.
Andrew got home at 2 am and accidentally woke Nancy up. That was a mistake because then she talked to him for half and hour.
Wednesday: The alarm went off at 5:30. Andrew groaned. Nancy said that if he was a very good boy and promised to get up right at 6:00 that she would set the alarm for another half hour. True to his word, Andrew got out of bed at 6:00 when the alarm went off for a second time. They left the house at 6:30. Andrew worked from 7 am until 1 pm. Nancy sat with Andrew for his first hour of work while they looked at Adobe tutorials (they are nerds) because nobody was in the computer lab. She then went to work from 8 am until 1 pm.
Then, because Nancy had banked enough hours the previous week to take half a week off this week, and because Andrew had no other hours for the rest of this week, they were able to meet each other in the library lobby and decide that they would try to stay away from campus for the next few days. They rejoiced exceedingly, left the library, drove home and crawled back into bed.
They slept for the next two hours or so, until they were rudely awaken by Nancy's little brother.
And thus they started their marvelously relaxing, and relatively long, weekend.
