And now we are back to three

And now we are back to three

Those who read my last post would now that after I had some surgery done my parents had come to stay to help me out for a few weeks as I was very limited in what I could do.  And that my children were struggling a bit with the change of routine.

Today after three and a half weeks my parents have gone home.  I have greatly appreciated the help they have provided as well as enjoying the break from being the only cook in the house.  However today as I worked from home in a silent house I realised how quickly I have adapted to being the only adult in the house.  To being able to set things up how I want them, run the house in the way that works for me and my boys, and not be judged for my crazy OCD like moments.  My mum was shocked that all of my pegs are one colour and that my ensuite vanity is always set up with everything in exactly the same place.  Surely I am not the only one with odd quirks!! Thank goodness I didn’t mention I need the TV volume to be on an even number.

I have been separated for two years next month and while it was strange at first after being married for 12 and a half years I have very quickly adapted to being on my own.  We have set routines that work for the three of us, our life is crazy and busy but we all get each other. We drive each other nuts one moment, and the next minute are having a dance party in the kitchen.  And most importantly have a house full of cuddles, laughter, fun and forgiveness.

So this morning when I got home from dropping the boys off at school I made a cup of tea and took ten minutes to sit in silence on my own for the first time in weeks before starting work.

And how did the boys and I spend our first night back to just the three of us?  Eating bowls of pasta in the lounge room while we watched TV before reading books together in our pajamas – Perfect!!
