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.
