LOST: one husband

Answers to the name of Shawn, brown hair, hazel eyes, last seen wearing a lab coat and looking sleep deprived. Lost in the area of his job...and his job. If you happen to see him filling prescriptions 12 hours a day, please tell him to come home, his wife misses him!

Seriously, I've become a pharmacy widow. Shawn's pharmacy is currently down a pharmacist and in the middle of a huge software change. And since he's the manager, it's his job to supervise the software change, train the employees on it, pick up the slack for the missing pharmacist, interview potential pharmacists, hopefully hire someone and do his regular pharmacist job. Oh yeah, and occasionally come home and sleep. So he goes into work early in the morning, if we're lucky we see him around 7pm, and then after the kids are in bed he sometimes heads back to work. And for some crazy reason he volunteered to pick up a shift at another pharmacy in a town almost an hour from here today.

It's only temporary, they're working the bugs out of the new software, they'll eventually hire a new pharmacist (there's a serious pharmacist shortage here, so it's not an easy task) and life will get back to normal aorund here. Shawn's a hard worker and I love that about him, but I like it better when he's home at night!

I'm proud of him though, he's not a complainer (unlike his wife!). He just does what he has to do and gets the job done. The pharmacy is lucky to have him.

There's not much else to report this week! With Shawn gone so much we haven't done anything exciting and I'm in the middle of a bunch of photo projects that have kept me really busy. I've been trying to shoot something for a photo challenge that starts this weekend, but I'm struggling with the lighting, so I've reshot it four times and I'm still not happy with it. I'm going to give it one more shot this afternoon. The photo is a fairly simple concept and doesn't seem like it should be this difficult, I've just been struggling with getting it lit correctly. I origionally shot it with studio lighting in my makeshift studio in my basement, but after messing with the lighting for hours I still wasn't happy with the result, so I tried to use natural lighting in my backyard yesterday, but I had a whole other set of problems doing it that way. I'm going to give it another try today, and I'll post the results if I ever manage to pull it off!

Oh, hey! Just as I was posting this, Shawn called from work and asked me if I wanted to go on a date tonight. Woohoo! You can stop looking for my lost husband, I think I just found him!! :)
