craftymama Posted March 7, 2012 Share Posted March 7, 2012 I can't find normal. I'm not talking about the imaginary "normal" that one might read about in books or see on TV, I'm talking about normal for my family. We have pretty much been in a state of transition for so long I'm lost. We've moved twice in the last year, once internationally and once because of a crazy landlord; added to our family; started homeschooling; are suffering from culture shock in returning to the USA; have lived in hotels for weeks on end at certain points; gave up our daily activities and friends (obviously with the moves); dh has changed jobs twice, same employer, different people and responsibilities and is bringing stress and complaints home (this is new for me as he hasn't done it much before and never for so long); we have no friends in the area and don't have many prospects; my oldest seems to have lost the ability to follow rules, do what he's told, or be respectful; the toddler is taking cues from the older one; and while dh sees the same problems/issues I do his answer is wait it out or the manly "I don't have any ideas." Some days (today being one) I feel as if I'm ready to explode. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
