Sunday evening used to be a horrid time for me. My husband always used to work away and would be leaving for the week either late Sunday night or early Monday morning. I would try hard not to let the thought of him leaving spoil the day but honestly it would always be in the back of my mind and I would always feel sad. Monday was always dreadful , the loneliness crippling , I almost felt in mourning every bloody week. Dramatic much!! Haha!! Anyway Dave no longer works away and so I no longer have that feeling of dread all day Sunday. Instead I feel happy and relaxed. I enjoy the thought that a new week is about to begin , new challenges , new experiences and lots of fun to be had.
This is one thing in my life that has most definitely changed for the better!
It's Sunday evening now and I have lots planned for the coming week, busy busy as always ! Can't wait to get started!!
I've had a pretty good day today. Baby slept in 4 hours stretches over night so woke up pretty refreshed , if cold! Had a calm morning. Children got to school on time. Visited dad for a coffee. Baby had a nap. Sister visited. Then mum and dad popped in later. Even managed to do some art work! So why do I get to 4 o'clock and suddenly feel completely overwhelmed! I honestly could sob , I am exhausted and can't bring myself to even stand up! Can I have a slap please ! Fingers crossed I feel better soon!
Today we shall enjoy the last day of the holidays! Unfortunately Dave has already gone back but he is on an early so will be home before we know it! Plans for today include scooter riding, cookie baking , knitting and dancing! It's all good fun in the Wyche household :)
I've got a good feeling about this year. Pretty convinced it's not going to be a easy one but I think the challenges will make us stronger in the end. There is lots that I want to do, lots I want to achieve and I know that anything is possible! All I need to do is have some kind of plan and I can get what I want. The first thing I really really need to deal with is our finances. We have alot of debt and not quite enough income. We have scaled down on alot but honestly things are still pretty tough. This makes things so very hard and I'm certain this is affecting my husband more than he let's on . It must be pretty tough being the sole bread winner and demoralising when you work so hard but have nothing to show for it. So I need to work out how to make things better, bring in some more money to ease his burden. There are a number of things I can do , perhaps make a real go of selling my jewellery , maybe finding some paid singing work. Sensibly tho I think a job is the way to go! Some weekend work perhaps? Mason is still only very young and exclusively breastfed but once he is 6 months I will start looking for work. I don't want to be away from the home during the week until he is at preschool but there must be something I can do. I'm not work shy and its time to prove it! So watch this space , 2012 is going bring alot of changes around here!
