Being here has been difficult for me. I don't quite fit in here. A lot has been discovered for me - some good, some bad. Most requiring attention and healing. Things improve with two steps forward and one step back. I am trying to be ok with the fact that I have a Masters degree up in the attic collecting an obscene amout of dust. I don't know for sure if it will ever be 'used' again but for now I am focussing on being happy where I am.
Since my daughter joined us 4 1/2 months ago I have found more purpose and enjoyment. How is that these little people suddenly appear and change our world completely? The days don't drag on because there's always something that needs tending to with her. A walk here, a nap there ... but it is so much more than that.
