Lately, I have finally been feeling a little more settled into life here. I'm finally feeling like i'm getting over things, and things are going to be ok. Of course I still miss my family *tremendously*, and my friends, but I have made some amazing new friends here and that's what I grasp onto. Without them I would feel so lonely, and don't think I would be able to cope.
Things have changed so much lately. Doug got this new job which he started a few weeks ago and coincidentally, I got a new job which I started on the same day as him!. Things just seem to be falling into place. I am really enjoying my new job, and so far it's going well. I really couldn't ask for better hours, days and location. I am able to be with the kids a few days and be home early enough to cook a nice dinner. What more could I ask for?. Of course I could ask that I be close to my family.
There will always be this hole and this something missing. And that's my family. I know they're always there, but not physically here. Is there a grace period to missing them?. Am I meant to be over it now and settled here?. I feel like to some I should be ok and over it and settled right into things here. I also think to some, me saying "I miss my family" is old and annoying news now. Is my grace period up?.
