Life Happens....

Well a little update....life has a way of taking an occasional unexpected turn.  This month has had one of said turns.  John is now working nights Monday through Friday (which I absolutely hate!) from 3 pm to 11pm.  I am working 6:30 am to 2:30 pm (I get home at 2:45).  Yep...do the math...that's a total of 15 minutes a day that I am able to see him.  Why the change you might ask?  because out of necessity.  As a parent, there are times that you do things you do not enjoy or want to do.  This is definitely one of those times.  We are now homeschooling one of our children and with such, someone needs to be home during the day.  Since I am no longer at home during the day, John changed his schedule.  The things you do out of love for a child.  As such, time is a very precious thing.  Every minute counts when we are all together as a family.  Time is very limited.  The lesson I have learned is as a parent, you have to follow through and make the most of a tough situation.
