I have a fairly traditional job. Mostly 9-5ish hours, and the ability to work from home if extended hours are needed — and they usually are.
Ken has a nontraditional job. Yes, he almost always heads to work at 8:30 a.m., or 8:00 a.m. on Saturdays, but he also has evening activities most days of the week. (Sunday-Thursday, and often on Saturday)
So, I get home at 5:30, and Ken gets home at 8:30 or later on most nights. We live about 20 minutes from church, if there’s no traffic, so there’s not really time for him to come home for dinner.
My problem is: What do we do about dinner? I do a lot of crock-pot dinners, a lot of cereal and microwave frozen E-mealz leftovers. Many times we eat completely different meals, three hours apart. I feel like I can’t quite get into the rhythm of our schedule.
Any suggestions for meals in a totally out-of-sync schedule?
