For the last one year and one day, THIS has been my work day, but today marks the end of an era. Mr. TBS starts a new job on Monday, so our carpooling days are over! We've been lucky enough to have a carpooling routine twice over the years. We worked for the same company back in San Diego, and this time around, we worked for different companies but in the same building.
We've been so excited about this new opportunity for him, but it wasn't until a few days ago that I realized how disappointed I'll be that we won't have those 30 minutes to just talk twice a day anymore. Those minutes have been a huge part of our marriage for the last year. We would do important things like make weekend plans, vent about work, stop somewhere for dinner on the way home, run errands, sit in silence, and decide our (in the not so distant) future baby's name. I'm so thankful for that time!
As much as I'll miss carpooling, the good outweighs the bad!
+ A better job for him
+ More money
+ I can listen to the radio (which he hates)
+ I'll get to sleep in until 7:00 a.m.
+ Space (We're have no problem being together all the time, but space never hurt anyone either.)
+ This car is going to be a top-of-your-lungs-singin' one-woman party from here on out.
Congrats to that special man in my life! Movin' on up!
