Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.


Is it possible to feel lonely when you are surrounded by people? Can you miss someone you live with? I promise this isn't some bizarre "cry for help" or something :D it just seems like a little bit of a lonely time. I think I might be experiencing some growing pains of my own. Fall makes me restless. It makes me want to make changes and do something different. I want to escape the rut. But unfortunately life has to go on. Therapy has to be done, laundry has to be folded, dinners have to get cooked.

So I find myself missing my own husband a little. We both work too much, we know that. We don't spend enough time just us, we know that too. There just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day. Thank God we truly, truly love each other. Otherwise I see how people do get into marriage ruts. I think we need a vacation or a date or something.

Ok, was that the most rambly post ever or what? I must be tired... or hormonal... or something...

I read you daily but don't get a chance to post much. Just wanted to say that I admire you and all that is on your plate and I understand the loneliness thing especially with a spouse. Hang in there and know that those girls have the best mommy ever!

With Chris in school I feel this way on a regular basis. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one. I always miss him - sometimes even at night when he's sleeping next to me! If he's not in class or at work then he's locked away somewhere working on homework or studying or reading. If he gets a week off from school then it's like torture b/c I get used to spending time with him and then it's back to the daily grind and I have to adjust all over again. I get that homesick feeling... I'm so thankful I have the kids to cuddle with and to occupy my time and make me laugh - even if the amount of work they bring into the picture is overwhelming at times. Not to belittle your feelings (or my own) but when I get to feeling this way I remember how lucky I am that he's not fighting a war or out to sea for months at a time. I also think of how lucky I am that I do feel the way I feel because I really really love him and enjoy our time together. I can't imagine being stuck with someone for the rest of my life who I wasn't this crazy about! I often joke that I hope we like each other when we actually have time for each other in the future. I hear you though, it's tough...

Mich - Well said! I do consider myself lucky to have a husband I love enough to miss. That part does make me very, very thankful!



About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
