Spouse Life: Nursing Edition

It has got to be hard to be a spouse of a nurse. 
Here is what Kevin often has to go through...

He has to roll over and over again really early as my alarm just goes off.....
He does not seem to have any trouble with this...

He gets home and I am not. Someone has coded or all hell has broken loose at the end of shift.

So then he decides to make dinner and calls me and I say I am on my way home and he is very proud that he has a hot dinner perfectly timed out for when I get home.

But then a patient traps me telling me her life story and all about her children and children's children and I am trapped trying to leave. Now dinner is cold.

Then I get home and he doesn't quite know whether he wants to immediately hug me. Am I gross? Probably.

Then we eat. I just gotta eat because I probably haven't sat down to eat all day.

Then I start talking about my day and he gets either really grossed out or depressed. I'm sorry. I love you for listening!

Then I get to shower. After my shower I feel like nothing can stop me.

Then I get in bed and he comes in excited to cuddle next to a clean me.....BUT I am asleep.

Thank you for putting up with me. I love you more than you can know!

Does anyone else's career leave your ever so forgiving spouse in situations like this?


  1. Lol! I can totally relate. I am a nurse, too. And my husband is kind of a germaphobe. So yeah...He won't hug me after work until I am showered. He gets nauseous with the gross stories, too. Haha!

  2. Hahahahaha It's a good thing he loves you :P

  3. I definitely know what it's like to be married to a nurse. Angel had a strict no greeting with a hug or kiss rule, but every single day, no matter how late, went straight from his car to the shower when he arrived home, took off his work shoes before entering the house--never let his scrubs get laundered with the rest of the clothes, they need their own separate load which he never let me touch. It's a profession where you definitely become aware of germs!


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
