Friday Matt started his new job and it marks the end of an era for us. We've been married for for over 4 years now and in that time, we have been tremendously blessed to have jobs that allowed us to eat lunch at home together. The last job Matt had here at our apartment complex allowed him to stop in additional times during the day to say hello, so it didn't even feel like he was gone to work each day -- he was always nearby and could stop by if necessary.
With Matt's new job, he is only permitted a 30 minute lunch. And while the job location is only about a 5 minute drive away, it still wouldn't be worth the time to try and come home for lunch. So the days are feeling just a little bit longer, and Madison & I both miss having daddy around. He always gets a big welcome when he comes home though. Madison is always there, rushing to the door squealing, "Daddy's here! Oh boy!"
