A few weeks ago my husband came up with a fabulous idea: to take the kids to Drumheller for a little family adventure! We kept it a secret right up until we got in the truck, though Bobby knew something was up because we were leaving the house over an hour earlier than normal.
On May 26, 2007, in a little community hall in Edmonton surrounded by our friends and family we said “I Do”. I heard tales of wedding day jitters or the sudden fear of not knowing if it was the right decision to make, and people told me to let them know if I felt like throwing up… but I didn’t experience any of that.
Our day home was going to be closed for two weeks and I thought it would be the perfect time to spend some extra time with my youngest… That time has already come to an end and I feel completely different than I thought I would.
I thought by now I would be counting down the hours until I went back into the office, stressed out from how difficult it was to get work done with Cordelia demanding constant attention, struggling with getting Bobby ready for school and then getting him to and from school every day. I thought I’d be begging for adult interaction or an excuse to do my makeup. It would be easier if that was how I felt right now.
