“How was your weekend?” Someone asked me today at work.
“It was great,” I reply, except...for saying goodbye to my family.
That’s a BIG caveat. Family is important. My wife and kids are everything.
And this weekend they had to fly back to California. It’s not for long. But then, a couple weeks can be a lifetime sometimes. There are a variety of reasons for the trip. (Me working two jobs is a major one.) But trying to keep all the positives of the trip in mind is hard when all you want them to do is turn around and stay right here (or jump on the plane with them!)
One of the benefits of the move to Texas is turning our finances around. Things have been rough for us for a while, like many others across the country. And it does feel good to see some positive change. I just wish it didn’t have to come at the expense of time with my wife and kids.
All I can say is that I’m trying to keep focused, looking to my HoneyDo list, and hoping the time flies by, until I can see them again.
