Sean started second shift at work today. Classes start next week. We decided that the easiest way to handle the transition was for him to start his second shift this week and then start classes a week later so that he could get his sleep schedule straightened out this week before he had to deal with classes as well.
I guess I had gotten used to always coming home in the evening and Sean would already be home. Most nights, dinner would be almost ready by the time I got home. Tonight, I got home and the house was quiet. No lights were on. No dinner in the preparation phase. No Sean to welcome me home after a long day. I sighed, put the groceries away and started working on dinner. It’s going to be a long semester. Miss you already Sean.
