Dear Me

My Kids must be Frickin' Ecstatic.
Dear Me,
self esteem parenting when it is hard homesick  I am imperfect
You're doing great. I know that the homesickness is really getting to you. I know you are feeling the distance between where you are and where your life is. I know that the house is beginning to feel smaller and smaller by the day. The household chores are such a dang chore... You feel like you are all living on top of each other. But I'm proud of you for keeping the kids focused and for continuing to get them out and about and for helping them to live exciting lives where they are. They may not appreciate it now, but one day...

Up to the Ice Skating Rink...
And another thing, I'm also proud of you for looking for new ways to be productive, for creating meaning in your life, and for doing what you love. It takes courage to risk it in a new career path. But you know that. You have started over again and again. Listen, take all of the time you need, it's quite a learning curve. Stick with it; I'm excited to see where it will go.

Over to Guitar Lessons...
The work you are doing with the kids right now is really meaningful. It is quite thrilling to see their growth and interest! It seems you have stumbled on an area of life that interests both of them! Thank you, Me, for the zillions of kilometers you have driven this week, getting the kids to all of the places that they love. I can see their bloom...  Specifically I can see John actually beginning to embrace puberty, rather than trying to avoid it and deny it. He's going to be a great teenager. Good going, Momma.

If I could give you any advice right now, Sweetie: You are watching Breaking Bad until far too early into the morning.  
Go. To. Sleep.

Love, Me
