Ready for the Weekend

I'm so ready for this weekend to get started.  I've been having trouble blogging lately as I seem to be on an emotional rollercoaster.  My husband is going to be opening an office in another city, which means it will be just baby J and I during the week. This will go on for months.

I try not to think about it but sometimes it consumes my thoughts.  Yes we'll get through it but I don't want to. He's my best friend. He calms me down when things aren't going well. How will I handle everything alone? Not to mention only really talking to a 1 year old.... who's vocabulary consists of saying "Dat" ALL THE TIME.

We are going on our second big date this weekend.  WHAT!?  Yes, you read that correctly. My husband and I have been on one other big date since baby J was born. We just don't have the family support system like a lot of our friends do.  There is no dropping her off at the grandparents house for a Friday night dinner.  Hiring a babysitter for a weekly date is out of the question when you're paying $10 an hour plus dinner.

When you don't have that alone time, it can be REALLY hard on a new marriage with a baby.  So with the hubby moving out next week... well you can imagine my heart feeling broken. I also have a lot of anxiety over what Baby J will go through.  It will be just as hard on her not having daddy around for cuddles and pillow fights.  But... we will survive.

I just keep repeating... if you never go through the storm, how would you ever find the rainbow?


  1. I won't lie; that's going to be hard! But you guys seem like you have a solid relationship, and you'll get through it! How long is this new arrangement going to be?

  2. We don't really know. We are starting with the 6 month figure but... we'll see. A lot has to happen for us to be living under one roof. He's very driven so I hope by next summer it will all be settled!
