It's really hard to let go.
I miss my Mommy duties. I miss waking up and reading blogs. I miss making the birthday party details come to life, chatting with the neighbors, taking the kids swimming mid-day, going to the library to hear some cheesy puppet show. I miss it all.
If you've been pulling this off all along, Dude, you rock. Because this.is.hard.
But it will all iron itself out. It's a matter of getting efficient, getting into a routine, getting a solid system figured out.
Sorry to whine. I had hoped to be my snarky self. I'm barely hanging on right now. And the husband. The helpful one. Yeah, he leaves tonight for 5 nights. There was a time I celebrated this alone time. But today, I'm feeling a bit anxious about the whole thing.
Here's the good news, the kids are thriving at their new school. It's a fantastic place with fantastic teachers. I know they are in good hands, and they love it. And Patrick even took pictures for me of their first day at school ...
Note to self: Next time, give Patrick the point-and-shoot.
