Time for a change.
Back in October my hubby put a stop to our weekly caravan over to his mom's house. Our doctor told him we needed to do what was best for our family. We want what is best for her and our family. She now comes to stay with us for a few days once or twice a month. She loves spending time with the boys and we have a room set up for her so we all have our own privacy. I know it is hard for her to go back and forth and sometimes she gets confused. It is still a process and I feel in limbo most of the time.
My brother is having some problems with his back and has three bulging discs. I will be taking him for his procedure later this month. I pray it will help him with his back pain.
My mom has recently discovered through tests that one of her valves in her heart will be in need of replacement. When we are not sure. She will have a repeat of the test to see if it is worse in about 6 months. Her aunt had the same procedure when she was 6 years older than my mom is now.
Later this week my hubby will be changing to the graveyard shift with Wednesdays and Thursdays off. This is by far the biggest change we will deal with. I am a planner and I like to know what is going to happen and when. I also like to keep to somewhat of a schedule. This shift changes a lot of things for me particularly. I usually walk with my hubby's sister at 5:30 in the mornings. Now I have to stay up late (past 9 pm) to make sure he gets up to get ready for work so I will be sleeping in. I usually grocery shop throughout the week in the mornings and take my mom with me to Albertson's every Wednesday. Not sure if we will change but will probably go back to Fridays. I will be getting my Bountiful Basket by myself on Saturdays or with my little one. It was time for me and the hubby to just be together. I will miss my all alone Monday mornings when I watch shows from ON DEMAND and wash the sheets. I will get to spend time with my hubby in the mornings and he will get to attend the little ones school programs. The boys and I will have the evenings while hubby is sleeping maybe we can do some dinners with my mom. The boys and I will have the summers late afternoons and early evenings to spend with their Auntie swimming. That will be fun. The hubby will get to spend the days with the boys during Easter break and summer. As I have said before whatever happens we will make it work. Anything worth anything takes work and our family is worth it.
