Both of these kiddos are in school full time. That’s seven hours a day without children. This type of schedule hasn’t existed for me in seven and a half years. That’s a lot of years.
I was hoping I’d have time for a thorough and thoughtful post about how all of this is sinking in—and it’ll come eventually—but for now I’m playing catch up. On everything, it feels like.
Someday (hopefully soon) I’ll process what this new chapter means for me. I’ll feel caught up on life for the first time in a long long time (again, hopefully). I’ll be able to put away my computer at night and do things like craft, and puzzle, and read.
I’m not quite there yet—but I can see it on the horizon and it’s close enough to touch.
