    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.

    Before he retired not much, he traveled and worked long hours, I raised the kids and ran a home based day care which took many more hours in the day than you would think. Now that we're retired we spend most days together during the day, in the evening he goes down to his mancave to watch sports and I watch a movie, or read, or sew, depending on my mood, upstairs.

    Not much as we work different shifts. A couple of hrs. a day during the week and Sat. and Sun. if we aren't working O.T. When the O.T. hits it is even less. Some times it is as if we are 2 people just sharing a house.

    We are both retired so we see each other a lot. During the day we are sometimes doing different things around the house. We cross paths and talk to each other all through the day. We eat supper together and usually watch a little t.v. together. Our house is small so we are usually within ear shot of each other.He gets up early and I am a night owl. That gives each of us alone time each day....Works well for us! :-D

    We have breakfast together every day, then I go off to work (he's retired). We eat supper together every night (once a month I have girls' dinner out). We spend most of the weekends together, but he's in his office a lot and I'm on here! We love road trips because we get to be together a whole lot. After May 27 we will get to spend more time together!!!!!!

    There is an old country song that says "Love grows best in houses just like this"

    When we went from a really small 1100 sq ft house to our current 2 story 2400 sq. I was worried, too much space. Id never see my family! Silly I know, nothing has changed, but the military shipping him to another state kinda puts a cramp in things. Here I was worried, he would be stuck in another room!
