I miss you "real life"

I feel like I'm so far out of the loop. I spend 8 or more hours at school everyday, come home and work with the boys to get Payton's homework and learning games in with Max, get dinner worked in there somehow and get the boys to bed. Then I spend hours on the computer working on lesson plans, researching techniques and working on my own course work. Then to bed.

I miss my other life. The one where the biggest stress was if I had time to make it to the grocery store without kids that week. The life where I could take Max to the park or to a friend's house to play anytime I wanted. I miss the life where I had friends. I know you guys are out there somewhere. I miss you!!! Christine! Kim! Kristi! (and many others!) HELLO?!

I miss my husband. I saw him...Monday the 12th! Oh, and Sunday night for 4 hours. So it's been over a week since I spent more than 4 waking hours with my husband. :( Luckily, we have a few hours together tomorrow and Friday.

Don't get me wrong, I love my job. And my co-workers. And I'm making new friends. And I love the kids (most of 'em) and the work I'm doing with them. But I miss my free time and unscheduled life.

Often doing the things we enjoy and know are good and wholesome can still suck. You will miss these things also when they come to an end. Everything has a downside. Life is unfair!!
Hang in there.

I can imagine what you are feeling. In fact, you talking about the things you miss was kind of a slap in the face for me to be more appreciative of what I've got. Hopefully as the time goes, you will feel less like you're missing something and more like it's just a new way of life. I love ya girly!
