Emotional healing

So much has happened the last few weeks!!

I shared a while ago how I am planning to open a private practice, for counseling. But I was planning at the time to keep my current job. Well, the decision has been made to just leap with both feet!! I tendered my resignation today, effective the last day of school (May 21st).

Things have been under consideration for quite some time. But then hubby moved out to "cow camp" just before the first of April and things came to a head...

Cow camp is when he moves to live right next to the pen the heifers (first time mamma cows) are in until they give birth. He's out at two to four hour intervals to check on them round the clock, depending on how much birthing is going on. By last Tuesday he was absolutely EXHAUSTED. And because of stuff going on with me (being sick and just trying to juggle home, kids, and work), I hadn't been out to help him at all.

So anyway, last Tuesday I got several texts from him and could tell he was really struggling. My wonderful co-worker totally understood when I told her I had to leave early to check on him and that I might not be in Wednesday.

As it turns out, I took off Wednesday AND Thursday, and stayed out with him until Sunday evening! Five whole days together. I cooked for him, we snuggled, I helped with chores, read my bible, colored, watched movies and just in general was WITH my husband for the first time in a long time.

We were back and forth to town a couple times but mostly I hung out with him at the farm. I honestly had forgotten how much I love that.

This was the normal view out the camper's kitchen window in the mornings:

And a couple more pairs, the babies are so darn cute!!

I'm home again, and at work of course. I'm hoping to get the keys to my NEW office this week. And hubby should be done with heifers by Friday if all goes well!!

Not much on this blog about weigh loss. Unless you count the weight that is off my shoulders and off my heart... so very important to deal with all that too, don't you think?

    That should help clear the way for some of the pounds to disappear!! Stress can keep those pounds on, even when diet and exercise are going right. Plus it can lead to loss of sleep which also keeps pounds on....

    I'm glad that you have taken this big step and I know that you will succeed in this. This area needs more professional counselors.
