I don't have much to say but I feel like I need to write something. Maybe because Snugs is about to turn 4 months and I don't want to just write month to month updates with nothing in between.
So the main bullet point of the past month? I'm really floundering with this stay-at-home mom thing. I think more than before. Sure I now have one student (beginner violin - the most challenging combination I find) and it's nice to get away but the rest of the week? I really struggle. I know I have a wonderful and helpful husband (though since Snugs has come along there have been many curveballs thrown his way - curveballs that mean he's not home as much as he was) and have two healthy beautiful children for whom I am/should be thankful but it just doesn't feel like enough. And I find it difficult. Having friends would probably help - I miss my old ones. My friend K, whom I met in Sicily, might be moving here in just over a year, that would be nice. And we may fly home this summer to see the peeps. That too would be nice.
I know I'm doing the best thing for my kids by staying home so I try to keep in mind it won't always be like this. Some day I will have some semblance of a life again, right?
