I’m sick. I started coming down with some sort of cold thing when my sister was visiting this week, and it has really taken hold. My mom also visited during this illness, and the last few days have been an utter blur. Today is literally blurry. My eyes are so watery that I can hardly see. Poor me.
The nice thing is that because J is home, we’re finally getting to reconnect, sick and all. Since we moved, we haven’t had a piece of furniture that we could both sit on together comfortably (aside from our bed), but we finally get our new sofa (which we affectionately refer to as our snuggle-sofa), and we’ve spent the whole day on it reading, laying our heads in each others’ laps, and just generally being sweet to one another. Oddly enough, this is the first day since we’ve moved that we really feel like us. We’ve both been so caught up in all of the transitions, that it’s been hard for us to get on the same page, so that’s what today is about. In fact, that’s what this whole week will likely be about, and it feels good.
I did want to thank everyone for all of the really kind responses to the last post. We’re taking some of the advice offered, looking into some temporary work solutions, and still thinking about the next TTC steps. Something is bound to work out.
