I'm here. Away from hubby, the wives, kids and grandkids, and with my "other" family. It's better in some ways for me and in some ways it's not. It is what it is. It's been a couple of weeks now and still no routine, I still feel like a visitor and I am.

Honestly, the worst part is the grandkid. I miss the ones I left behind, very much. Young children aren't great telephone talkers. The new ones go on with their lives just with a new person in it. Me. Frankly, they don't know me.

I crave the beach. I am a fish out of water. No one has time to go with me.. I'm sad to see summer ending.

On the positive side, right now I have my own bathroom!!!! :) That is no small thing when you've been sharing with so many people for what seems like an eternity!!!

Hooray for your own bathroom! I understand about feeling like a guest. I look around the house, and the only evidence that we stay here is this laptop and the clothes hanging in the guest room. Nothing is ours--it is all MILs. Our things are in boxes and will have to stay there.

Hope you find a routine that works for you and gives you some inner peace.

I'm glad you have your own bathroom. But I'm sad about the Grandkids you left behind. What about skype? Seeing you might help keep you in touch with them. Thinking of you and hoping you feel more settled soon.
