How Life Changes

My husband taking on the Terminator!
The world turned upside-down recently. Like most of you, I've had to make adjustments in the new reality. I used to have certain times of the day I could work, and now, with two kids home all day when they aren't over at their father's house, it's very different. My schedule has been a bit wonky, to say the least.

Having my husband home all day has also been a bit different. At first, I felt like I had to spend all day with him but then we both realized that we got more done if we assigned ourselves separate tasks. Since getting married almost a year ago, we've never spent so much time together. I know that it has shown me that I finally got it right with him. I don't think there is another man I could have been quaranteed with for a month where we wouldn't have started fighting. Instead, we've fallen into a routine. When we have tasks to do together, we easily complete them by working together. The most drama we create together is when the kids are home, and then it's the family type stuff about getting them to clean up after themselves and to stop watching so much television.

After seven years of being alone and figuring it all out on my own, I'm now in the happy dilemma of figuring out how to share the woes and chores with another adult who is pulling their weight. I don't have to stress about how bills will be paid on just my salary because he's there to contribute. My husband is a superhero to me and I'm so thankful to have him in my life. He is the best change to have happened in my life, aside from my children of course.
