These last two weeks have just been downright challenging for me. Normally, I'm on here every day several times a day checking in with friends, logging my stuff, reading, etc. Well, I just haven't had the time for it, and I'm so sorry for that. I know that it will get better, but I think I just got overwhelmed with SO MUCH! I'm still eating healthy and exercising, although it's been a challenge.
One thing that has completely thrown me off my game has been the absence of my DH. He has been at his job for a little over a year. One of the requirements of his job is to do a "one year anniversary" type training (basically an advancement of knowledge and clearance to do more). Well, his initial training was right here in town in 2011, but this one....we weren't so lucky. He is in a different city for the better part of three weeks, and I'm miserable. He is my better half in so many more ways than just claiming it. I have had to handle my full time job, the dogs, ALL the household chores, AND prepare all my meals and make time for the gym and time to talk to him when he can (which is highly sporadic). I'm completely overwhelmed.
I know I sound like a giant pansy, because I know there are women out there who work FT, are married, with kids and go to school and STILL manage to be superwoman around the house and look like Barbie doll. I'm just not that woman. It's hard keeping it all together without my helper and I haven't felt all too well either. I miss my routine and my sparking and most of all, I miss all of my spark friends. I have made a vow to at least make attempts to be better at this. There is just so much going on right now, some of which I can't even talk about. So, for all of you out there who I always encourage and communicate with...know that I still care for each and every one of you, and I'm still cheering you along in my heart even if I haven't been the best about it these past few weeks. I know when my DH returns, life will go back to somewhat normal.
Until then, please bear with me!
