Back on Fire and Thinking Positive
Friday, June 11, 2010
I definitely needed that day of rest and I felt so so much better the next day and was far more productive.
A lot of my stress was mental seeing as I have been feeling like a single mother since end of March. My husband has been relocated for work since than. We were planning that it would all be over by end of June but looks like it will not be over til the end of August with possible relocation again which means he will not be home monday to Friday. Than there have been weeks were he only comes home for a day because he has to put in time on Saturday.
I think mentally i have been processing this and the change is so much. I try to keep busy, keep my daughter busy and well I feel overwhelmed. I of course feel bad talking it out with my husband because he is so tired or it also and sick of not being home. I start journalising about it and of course i vent -- but it could be a lot worse so I try to look at the bright side.
I am worried that he may be relocated again and with Madison starting school in September we do not even have the option to go with him. If he goes relocated even further coming home on weekends maybe out of the question. So here I am :) So I should be grateful that he has the flexibility to come home weekends at the moment and just take advantage of the time we have together as a family. I should be grateful that I get to stay home with my daughter as many parents do not have that. I should be grateful that my husband even has a job as many families are struggling to make ends met and sometimes are faced with job losses.
I should be grateful. So positive thinking is on the agenda for today and everyday :)
Thanks to all of you for your support as I am grateful for that as well ;)
