After an already busy first year of Law School, he then goes and pretty much leaves me for the whole summer, all to come home and then start Law School again. I literally just want to scream, "When will I get to see my husband?!" better yet... "When will I get to have FUN quality time with my husband again?!"
I know that going through something like this in your marriage is normal, typical, and if you let it, can help your relationship truly grow and blossom. But it can be hard to focus on that daily. It can be hard to remember the benefits when you see your husband for a genuine half an hour every day. every. single. day. monday through friday.
Problem is...When we DO have time... we just aren't taking advantage of it. We are both always so "tired" and we want to be lazy. Granted... we are lazy together, haha but I have felt for the past year we need to be better and more proactive in creating time for us. Real, thought out, fun, genuine time together. We have been working on it a bit this summer... but I want to be even better at it. We just work too hard to not be enjoying ourselves. We used to be constantly on the go together, and that is something we used to always have, and is why our blog was titled crowley party in the first place. I want that "party" back in our relationship.
While law school is known as being a notorious time suck, I think I am fooling myself into thinking this issue of spending quality time together and really focusing on still dating each other is linked to school. Because if I am being honest, if it isn't school, it will someday be children, or work, or... you get the idea.
... and since were being honest here... you know you all could use some better, fun, quality time with your spouse. Designated, specific time!
