It has been a hot minute since I’ve written anything but I’m excited to be back!
To say my life has been chaotic, would be a massive understatement.
Since I last wrote, we have moved and the hubs and I have reversed roles. He is currently staying at home and I am supporting our family full time. I’m on the cusp of a big promotion, which is awesome but exhausting.
Why all these changes? In a nutshell? Because autism.
My husband had a great paying job with seemingly excellent benefits. But due to loopholes and stupid technicalities, these benefits wouldn’t cover therapy for our littlest little. On paper, he made too much money for us to qualify for any programs to help our son. So the decision was made that we would swap roles. I make a lot less than he did, which qualifies our son for the help he so desperately needs. For the first time in a long time, we see light at the end of a very dark and tumultuous tunnel.
It’s been a wild and crazy adventure. In the fifteen years we’ve been together, I’ve never been the sole earner for our family. Money is tight and I work A LOT but honestly? I feel like we are all happier.
The downside is, I don’t have much me time. I mean let’s be real, I never had much to begin with. But I had more than I do now. But I’ve missed this. Writing. Using the creative side of my brain. I’m going to try to do it more often.
Who needs sleep, right?
