...with my three jobs: Mom, (temporary) Dad, and fulltime professional.
First of all, 2 months down, and 4 more to go until my husband comes home. Exciting news: we're planning to spend a few days in London together on his return trip, so I am starting to look at hotel options, and other possibilities for one very packed week. Not sure why, but this has me feeling happier.
My boss agreed to let me telework one day a week, so I'll be starting this Tuesday. Things have calmed down a little bit.
My checkup was better than I expected. I gained a few pounds, but my blood pressure and my lab results were right on target. Now if I could just get to the gym again.
My son is not doing well in school. I think it has to do with missing his Dad. I've been talking to his doctor and his school counselor, and I hope we can get this sorted out.
My daughter is worried about getting into a top college. At 16, I suppose that's normal. I keep trying to tell her that she'll get in somewhere, and it'll be fine. I'm taking a 2-night course at the local community college to help me figure out the puzzle of college financing.
I took my daughter out driving again today, and she did amazingly well for someone who hasn't been behind the wheel since July. It provided a much-needed confidence booster.
It's almost 11:30 pm. The cat is curled up here beside me on the couch. The dog is snoozing somewhere on the floor. The house is peaceful and quiet. Looks like my husband just logged on from his distant military base. It's early morning where he is, and the start of another day. I think I'll go to bed now. Good night to all, and thank God for for good things...
