{Can’t Think of a Title}

Last week I was very upset about my job ending and not going back to school. But Monday, I went to campus to meet T.J. for lunch and got to go grocery shopping during the middle of the day. It was awesome. I got over my depression fast, I thought.

Suspiciously fast.

Yes. Just as fast as I got over that sadness, I fell right back to where I was. Except for different reasons. I do have to admit, I LOVE not being in school and having to worry about tests/homework. But there are downsides too. The biggest being the loneliness. You go from seeing people all the time and getting to talk to them about your life and hear about theirs, to not seeing anyone other than your husband for just an hour or two a day.

I know I’ll get used to it eventually, but my trips to Dallas and Washington DC this month are sounding pretty good right about now.

    The loneliness won’t last long. Before you know it that little bundle of blessings will be here and your days and your heart will be full! But for now look forward to those trips. It’ll be good to see your family!

    I agree, you’ll have your hands full with baby soon enough. However, then there is also a different kind of loneliness that can settle in, and that’s being overwhelmed with this new role as mother. If I could do the first 5 months of being a new mom over, I’d make sure I got out more and really tackled some meaningful personal projects. I wasted a lot of time watching tv online so that the days would go by faster so my hubby could come home. That also meant I spent less time playing with my little one. 🙁 Enjoy your trips! They get harder with little ones.
