    How much time do you actually spend with your husband? Just wondering what the average time spent together might be.

    At times we have worked together, so 24/7 at times over the past 22 years. Now my sewing table is in the computer room. He computes and I sew :)....

    Sometimes not enough. My DH works full time and goes to school 3/4 time. I am a single Mom when school is in session. Only 2 semesters to go and then he is done and we can get back to being a regular family.

    It used to be that we got off work about the same time and would be home around 5:30-6:00pm. We would eat dinner together and spend time watching tv and relax, but now it just depends when I have off work. I work odd days now with new job. Sometimes I go in at 7:00am to 7:00pm and then other days its 7:00pm to 7:00am.

    Not very much right now. He goes to school during the day, works at night, sleeps for about 5 hours, and leaves again. In his spare time, he's been helping his cousin remodel his house.
    If I'm lucky, I get to spend Saturday mornings with him. Otherwise, it's just me and the kids!

    We're in the same house almost 24/7 but we don't actually spend a lot of quality time together. He has health problems plus a broken hip so he watches a lot of TV and naps in his recliner. I piddle in the house, spend more time than I should on this board and try to spend at least 1 hour quilting every day. However, I hope this changes soon as he will be having a couple of surgeries whithin the next month so he should start feeling better. I hope so because I really miss our being able to do things we enjoy together.
