-That if I am left to my own devices I will go to sleep every night by 9:30 and like it (this is my kind of sabbatical)
-That routine is my best-friend, but that I can just change it when it is isn't working.
-That it is completely okay to say no. Not coming to that meeting...no I wasn't planning on doing that...no I don't know the answer to that...no, I'm not answering that call right now.
-I am not going to get everything done and the world is not going to end.
-People are willing to help if you tell them how, but that sometimes feels like more work, but it is worth it if you can let go of it.
-Some people have lots and lots of advice, but the best people just pray, hug you and make you laugh.
We are down to our last three days on our own and we are doing well. Chris should be getting here sometime Wednesday. We are eager to hug him and welcome him home. I don't know how our new routines will work for Chris, and I know we will have a lot of adjusting but we are looking forward to it.
Homeschooling (Day 16 of school) is going great. Zee is rolling right along with the curriculum. She still has very rough days emotionally,but we are all a lot less wrung out about it. She is sleeping more, eating more and that is such a good thing. Homeschooling gives her the time to process her feelings and I am glad we are giving her the time.
I want to thank of all of you who have checked-in with me, offered to help or actually helped. I came close to wearing a sign saying "I'm FINE!' but I do appreciate the thought. And I appreciate those who gave my girls rides, or watched over them, when I couldn't.
