We’re approaching the one month mark of Robbie’s deployment. The first couple weeks flew by. We’ve done a couple weeks apart here and there for different trainings and such so that time frame wasn’t new to us. Up until this week I would say we were smooth sailing, but this week I feel like the good old Dory from Finding Nemo and I keep telling myself, “Just keep swimming.” I feel like I come up for air and then I’m back to it.
Hayden and I have basically been going non stop since Robbie left. Weekends have been busy, we’ve been traveling back and forth from my parents house and our house, we’re starting a new daycare next week, I’ve been busy with getting a Biggest Loser challenge going at our gym, and I’m working hard trying to build my Advocare business.
I’ve been struggling at work. The people, the work, the drama…my heart just isn’t in it. Unfortunately I don’t have any other options at the moment and thank the Lord I’m able to stay home with Hayden once a week. I’m just having a hard time sending him to daycare, being unhappy at work all day, and only getting to see him for a few hours at night, all while knowing he’s missing his Daddy. I know he’s young enough he won’t remember, but it’s still hard on this mama’s heart.
I had a random stranger show up at our house looking for directions late at night (very out of the ordinary for where we live), I had to get new tires on my vehicle, Redick has been gone for over a week now, and last night I saw a mouse run through our closet. I’m just not cut out for that crap.
I need a beer. Or a margarita. Or a vacation. All of the above, please?
My house was an absolutely disaster zone and thank God my angel of a sister came to stay with us for a day and helped (ok she basically did it all) get everything straightened and cleaned up.
I’m heading to Dallas in a week for Advocare Success School and while at the moment it seems like just another thing on my plate and another few days that I’ll be gone, but I truly am really looking forward to it. I know it’s going to be an amazing experience and the “me” time will be wonderful.
Rant over. Just looking forward to being back to a family of three. And not having to deal with car troubles, mice or strangers by myself. 🙂
