Without the rain....
Life has been a bit rough around these parts for the last 8 months and this week its all getting to be a bit too much.
It started with a breast lump, then the floods in Queensland, followed quickly by an international move. The kids and I have been back in NZ for 6 months and still no job for hubby. So we've made the decision to head back across the ditch, to where the jobs are. Six months of single parenting has taught me one thing, I don't want to voluntarily be a single parent.
On Friday it is 3 months since we have even seen my hubby. He has missed my 40th, my daughters 10th and my surgery. All really significant things you need your hubby around for.
This week has probably been the roughest so far. Surgery on Monday for the said lump and a gastroscopy to try to figure out all my food intolerances. Never expected to be so sore from the Gastroscopy, totally expected the breast pain. Nice big fat ugly stitches and nice big huge bruises where they took 8 attempts to get an IV into my arm.
Today Im sore, tired and struggling to get through the school holidays with so much going on. And to top it all off my daughter has tonsillitis and bronchitis.
All I can say is I am ever so thankful for my Mum and Dad!! Boy are we going to miss them when we head off again.
Sheesh. Lucky we get HEAPS of rainbows here because there sure is a lot of rain at the moment.
(I don't usually share this much personal stuff on here but hey, sometimes you just gotta let it out).
