So, it just didn’t work
I tried, I really did. I wanted to make things work here in Albuquerque, but they haven't. I won't put my family, immediate or extended, through any more trouble. I have literally lost my mind living in one room with both kids and trying to contain the nuclear energy of my dear boy, RJ. I never intended to co-sleep with Aubrey either, but it has been yet another sacrifice to the detriment of my sanity. I miss Matt so bad it hurts, literally.
So we are making the pilgrimage back home to Nevada, sans everything but our clothing and some toys. Eventually we will be back to collect our belongings, but starting fresh may be just what we need. Minimalist times call for minimal posessions... or something like that.
Look forward to seeing all of my friends... and leaving the land of manana where I saw hardly anyone Maybe in another life.
