Change is an interesting thing. I’ve always really enjoyed change for the most part. I love to rearrange my furniture, (sorry hubby) I love moving, (sorry hubs) I love fresh starts and new ideas. However… I’m also a creature of habit. I’m still a procrastinator, (sorry hubster) I still struggle with being on time (sorry hub-o, and Fay and Eden’s teachers) #honest … Hmm… I promise I have some good habits too… ha!
There has been a lot of change over here and it’s becoming our new “normal.”
Fay and Eden’s dad returned to the Caribbean to finish med school in May. Circumstances were such that we couldn’t join him there. Having our family physically split has been challenging. There’s so much I could write about the struggles and the emotions… But I’ll save that for my journal. Just know that it is hard but we are fine. God gives us strength and we do what we have to do.
Josh worked on the rigs for a while so that eased us in to his being away so much. Fay and Eden are daddy’s girls to a ‘T’. People often ask if we miss him… (um duh) but perhaps sadder than missing him is that we’ve become used to him being away. The house remains in its semi-chaotic state and the girls depend on me for their every need. FaceTime calls to daddy aren’t the same as sitting on his knee- but we sure are grateful for technology!
Josh was able to come home for three-and-a-half weeks between semesters. He surprised us a few days early and made it to our play! The girls were ecstatic and were glued to his hip the whole time he was home.The time flew by like a bat out of hell (you’re welcome Meat Loaf fans) Josh left last Monday, Fay and Eden started Kindergarten on Tuesday -there’s a change for ya! OH! They got hair cuts! Just look at all that change… This whole waking up early to get the girls ready for school thing is kicking my butt. I’ve been living a life of luxury being able to semi-sleep-in whilst the children (whom are trained with the remote) watch shows in the AM. #confessions-of-a-semi-single-mom …Less TV, more learning… that’s better for everyone.
So anyways, here we are for now…
in our new normal.
