Jeff expressed his stress by not unpacking. Much. He had sent me pictures of the house from 2-3 weeks after getting to Alaska. When I got here on Sunday, it pretty much looked the same. sigh
So, I need to do something about it. I am not a clean person; I have piles disease just like the rest of my family. But only having a small section of kitchen counter to work with because the rest was full, that just wasn't okay.
It feels a lot better knowing that I'm getting more organized, and can make meals easier because I know where things are, and I have counter space on which to prepare stuff!
I think I've been doing a good job of playing the little home-maker. I get up when Jeff does (otherwise I would sleep aaaallllllll morning). I've started making him breakfast. I pack his lunch, and send him on his way to work. Then I shower and have breakfast (with a TV show), followed by doing dishes. There might also be sweeping, burning burnables, doing laundry, etc. involved, followed by time on the computer. I've been setting a timer when I get on the computer because otherwise I would probably spend HOURS on the interwebs...
After lunch (with a TV show), I try to do more unpacking/organizing around the house, and work on getting dinner together. Yesterday I also go out and took a walk. Unfortunately we live on a gravel road, and the gravel here is more like rocks. Lots bigger than the gravel I'm used to in the Lower 48. I definitely need to work harder at getting physical activity in my day.
After making dinner, Jeff & I have been eating our dinner in front of the TV, where we watch a show that we both like, and just spend time together. He's been working 10-hour days this week, so early bedtime makes the evenings short. We don't have a ton of time home together, with his long work days this week, so I've not really been doing house work in the evenings.
