Yesterday, Mr. B. got offered a new job. The job was one that would take him away from home for 4 months, and then let him be home for 2. Now as much as it would be nice to have all Mr. B., all day, for 2 months, gone 4 at a time? No freaking way.
I know that women (and men) do this all the time for various jobs (thank you for your service, military families!), but that’s one of the reasons that the hubs got out of the military! Not only do we almost always enjoy each other’s company, we have three kids. I can’t imagine how the kids would react to not seeing their father for 4 months at a time. And, quite frankly, if I were to spend 4 months at a time with my kids, without a break – without another adult to speak with on a regular basis!- I would loose my freaking mind. I love my kids, but parenting is not always a walk in the park. I don’t want to be a single parent while I’m married.
So once again, in a matter of days, my family was offered something that would change out lives, and once again, we had to make a choice on what to do. And once again, we said no.
It got me to thinking, though. What’s going on there? Is the universe trying to tell us something? Do we need a change in our lives? Are we missing out on opportunities by turning them down? Or are we being shown a reminder of how important our family is to us?
Things usually come in threes, don’t they? I wonder what’s up next?
Meanwhile, I got something that I purchased in the mail yesterday. I don’t mean to be mysterious, but I love it so much, I sought out the distributor and wrote a letter asking if they might like to work with my blog in a little publicity giveaway. I thought, what the hey! Worth asking. I was thrilled spitless when they wrote back and said, sure! Not going to give away what it was yet, but it’s a little something that I think you’ll really like! Details coming in the next week or so. It really doesn’t ever hurt to ask. Rule to live by!
And here’s a little something I had to share. I found it on another blog, while I was blog hopping around. Sorry to say, I cannot, for the life of me, remember which blog I saw it on, sorry! If you go to my profile and look at the number of blogs I follow, you’ll see why, lol! It was too great not to share, though!
