Only a day away

I have been waiting and waiting for the day to come where I could have some kind of normal life again. And guess what? It starts tomorrow!!!! This day could not come any sooner. For about a year and a week Matt has been working in West Valley. He would be gone for about 12 hours a day, sometimes longer, working long hours and driving the ever-long construction commute home. So today I celebrate my last day of being a single parent and look forward to dinners with the WHOLE family. Which means I need to start making dinners again. Fine by me. Paid time off!!!! Insurance. Bedtime stories by Dad at a real bedtime, not at midnight. Real time for us to chill and hang out, before and after kids are in bed. Not us just trying to stay awake to see each other. Time, sweet time. This new change will bring a small pay cut but I would take a huge one ( if I could afford it) to be able to spend all this newfound time we will get together this year. Last year was rough but amazing. I'm sure this year will be the same but for different reasons. I'm also looking forward to better sleep!!!! Here's to the new year. Ours starts tomorrow!!!! Sing it with me - Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya tomorrow, you're only a day away. xoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxooxoxooxoxoxooxoxoxooxo

Most important, now we can get back to doing what we do best - dorking out! Enjoy. :)

That is awesome. I remember how excited I was to have Forrest home for dinner when he got a "normal" job a few years back. That has been and always will be my favorite thing- family dinners (oh, and bedtime stories are nice, too.) =)

Glad you get your hubby back.
