The Blessing of a Fever
I've been having a rough couple of weeks as far as integrating work and home and I couldn't really figure out why until today. I've worked a lot of weekends lately and some extra hours. Which is really no different from the summer. The difference, I realized, was that since my family either works at or attends school, that means that it doesn't matter if I work weekends in the summer because everyone is still home when I'm home during the week. Now, in October, I haven't been home on the weekends and everyone else is gone when I'm home during the week (Don't get me wrong, I do like my solitude sometimes) but I realized today that I had been missing my girl. It was so great to just be home. And have to stay there, because I'll tell you, I had things planned for today.
I'm glad the world had other plans for me though. My husband got home and I went to the Y by myself and then grocery shopping. It kind of felt like vacation all over again. I'm glad the universe gave me and my girl a time out together!
