I wanted to check in and let y'all know that I will hopefully be posting again soon.
We were without internet access for a few months but just got it back.

I will say that life has been different the past few months and Mr. B and I fell into a sort of complacency. He went through a layoff at work and was at home while searching for a new job. The extra time to spend together was wonderful, but we let a lot of routines slip, both in housework and in discipline and protocol. Now that he is back to work at another company, we are getting back to our normal routines.

Since it's a new month, I'm going to really try to focus on meeting his needs and getting things back in order. He also mentioned going back over our rules and discipline protocol and tweaking it to fit our current situation. He has been letting a lot slide due to the change in circumstances, and because Little Man's age means both that it is harder to keep up with my household duties as is and that we have less private time for discipline and couple time.

I am so glad to see him happy again, because he loves this new job and was under so much stress at the old one when they announced a merger and then a layoff when the merger failed. Still, he is working longer hours and driving much further to work each day and I can tell he is tired when he gets home. I want to make sure that I am keeping him as happy as possible and let him know how much I appreciate everything he does for Little Man and I.


  1. We have been through the same and it takes time to adjust. I've learned how important an actual relaxing dinner is and how to make short evenings as enjoyable as possible. Glad he's back at work and you are both back in the swing of pun intended. ;)

  2. It's so important for him to enjoy his job...glad that things are working out well on that end. Change of any kind seems to change EVERYTHING. We get in little "frumps" and strange cycles but always find our way back to the kind of dynamic that's good for us.
