Gratitude Challenge ~ Day 19

Today I am Grateful that I have made it through the first week of hubby's new schedule.

This may not seem like much to some of you but, I have Fibromyalgia and stress, changes in the weather, overdoing, etc. all make it act up. I had gotten used to having hubby home during the mornings and when he left it was "quiet time" for the kids. Then we had dinner, hung out together and then they went to bed. He would get home around 9:30pm. This was a typical Monday - Thursday for us. On Friday's he would work from 8-noon. Now he has a typical 8:30-4:30 teaching job (plus commute). I am having to change our schedule so that I can teach all 3 kids by myself. Enter the stress of change. Also, the weather here is changing, getting cooler, and my body feels it. I also had to cook dinner 4 nights this week (I haven't cooked for about 6 years...since we discovered hubby is a better cook). At least this week didn't have a lot of extra "stuff" in it so I was able to move things around as I needed to and I didn't have to leave the house except for Tuesday!
Pin It!


  1. WOW!  That is a lot of change!  I'm glad that He led you through the week, though.  Sounds like maybe hubby  might need to look at the "once a week" cooking and freezing.  That might help some of this transition for you.

  2. HOpe you can adjust to the schedule change with time.  Thanks for linking up to the NOBH:)

    Thanks Naomi! We are planning on doing freezer meals but hubby needs to be home long enough to cook anything! ;) LOL!
