The days after a break are always so delightful. No one really wants to be here yet. I sent my son back to California and my husband back to Florida and TODAY my Grandson and Son in Law fly off to Mexico to meet my SIL’s family who is visiting. I am fortunate that I work with my youngest here at the school she is the 2nd Grade teacher. My oldest daughter lives here in town. So I am blessed.
But it was hard to say goodbye to everyone on Sunday. My hubby has been working in Florida since October and I have adapted to him being gone, but it doesn’t make it easy to say goodbye to him and get back to my usual routine. My son has been living in LA for 3 years now, and it is still not easy for me to send him back when he comes.
I remind myself that, perhaps I am being selfish. I mean after all my husband has been away from his family in India for 9+ years now. How must his mother feel about not being able to see him. She doesn’t just fly him home like I can fly my son home when I want to see him.
I really didn’t want the school week to continue, I wanted at least a few more days with my family all together, to spend time with them. But they all have lives and like I said I am truly blessed that of my three kids two life here in town and one works with me everyday.
So am I selfish in wanting more time? Or am I just having normal Mom feelings?
Have a wonderful week back.
