So, I've been thinking about whether or not to write this post for a few days now and I decided that you will eventually find out so I might as well share.
As many of you know I've been unhappy here in Oklahoma for awhile now, I hate everyday and if you let me I would stay in bed all day. My husband has been concerned about me and the kids since we moved here but we did what we could to make it bearable here.
When we started discussing school next year for the kids, the cost of sending two kids to private school would leave little else to do with our money. There is nothing to do here but sometimes spending money on crap is the only thing that keeps us sane.
We decided that rather than be broke and unhappy the kids and I should move back to Houston with my parents and maybe I could even get a job finally. So, come summer I'm packing our bags and moving to Houston. Nicholas is going to get to go to school with his cousin, Sophia is going to get to spend more time with her grandma and I get to interact with adults other than my husband and I get to have friends again.
The obvious drawback to this situation is that Luis has to stay here because of his job but we've gone through deployments before and been just fine and at least this time I don't have to worry about him getting blown up. We'll come back up to visit when the kids have off school and he'll come down when he has some time off work but the most important thing is that I will want to start living again instead of staying in bed all day.
A lot of people won't understand this, a lot of people will criticize me for it but it's my life and I have to do what is best for my family. I can't be a good mother when I don't even want to be around and in Houston I will have lots of help from my family so I can get better and start to be me again.
Yeah Trish, we might actually be able to hang out somewhat regularly...and I'll be in town for your wedding!
