Looking back (but still moving forward)

This photo came up in my memories. Beautiful Annie on her first day of kindergarten.
Sometimes I miss my old life. Not that I want to go back to that life, but I think it is ok to say that I miss the simplicity of my old life.

I miss having someone else to share parenting with,
I miss having enough money,
I miss my kiddies living in the same house all the time,
I miss having someone to go to bed with each night,
I miss my friends that I never have time to see now
because I work full time.

There's things I don't miss of course, and I love my new life,
but I think it's perfectly acceptable to acknowledge that things are different
and sometimes that makes me feel sad.

Change is painful. I guess that one day this new life will fit more comfortably
 and I'll manage it better on a day to day basis. 

Let's do this.


  1. What a beautiful photo of your daughter! Chin up this life has it's shiny lining too.........

  2. Yes. I miss all those things too. I really miss just having someone around. But when I look at how it was... I know I can't go back to that. Nope. Going forwards. Inch by inch xx

  3. All the love Deb. Did you get the drop off at work from me today?


Thanks so much for dropping by. I love to hear from you and I want you to know that I really appreciate each comment!!
