The Road to Thanksgiving.....

I've decided that blogging is a lot harder to keep up with now that my life has changed. I work stupid retail hours and by the time I come home, there is just no way. Don't tell the folks at work but, I'm pretty sure my Halloween post was composed and posted while sitting at my desk one very slow day.

I long for the days of staying home and being a housewife. Taking care of my family is truly my joy and I believe was my calling. Maybe I just need a vacation, I don't know. I work only two days this week and I am looking forward to spending it with my family and enjoying Thanksgiving in "My New Normal".

This morning, Wade was curious why this Thanksgiving was going to be so different from the others. He has no idea how nice it will be to have a partner who is happy to be enjoying the day with people we both like and want to converse with. A partner who will sit and eat by my side and not expect me to cater to their every whim. A partner who will engage others in conversation instead of sit and eat in silence or not be in the room eating at all. A partner who will not disappear as soon as they're done eating. I really could go on and on.

It's sad when I think about all the years that I "let" that happen. And when asked why, my only response was, "it was easier to let him do whatever than to ruin my day by fighting with him". And to his face, I would alway say that, it was fine or I didn't care what he did but really, I missed having a partner.

In Wade, I have a partner. An equal. And because of that, this will be a different and better Thanksgiving that I am really looking forward to.

Have you met Wade, yet? Allow me to introduce you.

This is Wade. He's divorced with two girls, ages 12 and 8. He lives in Hemet and he has a pool. Haha  That used to be Tuesday's favorite part about him until she found out he had a 12 year old daughter. The girls get along very well. Travis and Wade get along great and they have almost more in common than Wade and I do. We've got a nice little routine going right now and I'm very happy.

Hopefully, I can get off my behind and take more pictures. I want to be able to share this. To share my happiness with you.
