Sean and I are both full-time state employees at two different locations that are three counties away from each other and about 160 miles apart (one of us works on the Central Coast and the other in Southern California). This means living in two separate homes during the week and seeing each other over the weekends and holidays. Since Sean is a university professor, he gets summer and winter breaks. That’s when we’re able to see each other for longer stretches of time.
Because of a mandatory staff training this week, I’m working five 8-hour days instead of the usual four 10s. Sean’s teaching schedule ended last week, so he’s been up here at the Morro Bay house for the last few days. It’s been nice to leave work at 3 PM, get home, see my husband, and hang out together like the average married couple.
This afternoon we went out for a walk downtown and stopped to get some frozen yogurt. Even though it was kind of too chilly to be eating a cold dessert, the whole experience was still a nice treat.
