An excercise in getting along...

Well, after another several years apart.. it appears Jake and I will once again be considered "living together." Jake has accepted a regional position with Highway which will have him sleeping at home every day (although not during the same hours in which I will be sleeping) and home each weekend. It's been a few years since this has occurred on a regular basis.
I'm scared. Historically, it seems the more time we spend together the sooner we get on each other's nerves and cease to get along well. The old adage about absence making the heart grow fonder certainly makes sense for us. It's not that we don't like each other... it's just that we tend to like different things and feel differently about some things, which causes friction. That and Jake isn't the best when it comes to open communication. I'm always the last to know things and he often makes plans which may or may not include me without actually including me!
I'm sure Sasha will be happy about it, at least. She won't be alone during the days except for a few hours after I go to work and before Jake gets home. From what I understand, he'll be leaving around 11pm and getting home at roughly 1pm the following afternoon. He'll sleep until I get home at which time we'll have dinner together before he heads to work again.
I really do hope it works out and we are able to get along well enough..... but I'd be lying if I said I'm not worried.
