Well, we are finally settled here in Dayton, thanks to my family and friends who helped us move in- I feel like I have been living here for a month already:) Due to the weather and having so much to do, I haven't ventured out too much in the city I now call my home...but I hope to after the ice has melted and things are back to normal.
The biggest adjustment of being here has not been the area, the house, or my lack of employment, it has been my husband's hours at his new job. I don't think I fully prepared myself for this waiting game I now find myself in. His previous job had great hours, 8:30 to 4:30 with all of the holidays off you could imagine...now it is 8:00 to 7:00 on a good day. It is now 7:00, and I don't even know if he has left yet. I am not writing to complain or for anyone to feel sorry for me, it is just a hard adjustment. I pray that as the job progresses, he will have more flexibility, and more opportunity to adjust his hours, but for now I have to be supportive, loving, and he needs to know that I am able to go with the flow (which is sometimes a bit hard for me:). I appreciate all he is doing in working so hard and sacrificing for us, and I know that he is wishing that he could be spending time with me too.
I pray that I can soon find the right job, and I can start to take my mind off all the time I am not spending with my husband who I love and miss whenever I am not with him.
