A new chapter starts for me. The summer season is coming up with so many plans. Some adjustments in our household that I need to consider which are a temptation for me. My middle son has moved in with us for the summer. He has a metabolism that never stops running and needs lots of carbs. So my household of low carb-ness is changing. I have to really have self control or find carbs I do not like to serve. And I have a father in law bugging me about a gift he gave me. He put a lot of time into finding me the best ice cream maker he could get me. There has been a ton of turbulence in my husband's family toward me. Maybe he feels bad how I have been treated and realizes I have pulled away. I show up to family functions but don't feel comfortable any more. This was a nice jesture, but he isn't the one who needs to fix thing with me. He asked if I had made any ice cream yet. To which he was told no for health reasons. I made sure to tell him that I do have plans to use it this summer. And I do...But ice cream is a weakness for me and I need to remember to not eat it all the time. It is a great gift to me considering I am a love of food and creating in the kitchen. But terrifying to get that gift knowing how much temptation it sets in front of me. So that is my summer challenge.
Hubby has started another class for another national certification. He will have one more to do after that before September. His boss is really pushing him to get it done. He, so far is the only person in the state to have national certifications in his field. I am proud of him but understand his frustration that he feels he has to do it. Another thing...today, is the last day of his work wife being at their job. He put in his two weeks a couple weeks ago and moves out of state on Sunday. Everything moved so fast. My husband and him are very close and great friends and have leaned on each other for support over the years. Both have been in the same boat at work but my husband's friend couldn't take the unfairness of how they were being treated and no action on a cancer in the office...and he quit. Now their boss, also a friend of over 20 years finally wrote up the cancer this week. But too little too late to keep them all together. Saturday night is his going away party. We need to be there and wouldn't think of missing out on this party to see such a man who has become family off to a new life. I often joke to my hubby that this coworker has to share him with me. It will be a big void in my husband's life. But what must be done must be done. My heart hurts for both of them.
That is kinda what has been on everyone's mind right now. One man leaving makes a huge impact on the guys and the work they have before them. And for one good man to leave because of a guy who can't do his job but gets away with everything...that's sad.
My youngest came down sick last night. He wasn't feeling well today but went to school. Hopefully he will be feeling better later today. Only 3 weeks left of school! Happy for him that he will get a break from working so hard. It has been a rough week, grade wise, for him. Maybe because he was coming down with something.
Sigh...I feel like the days will get longer. Well, they will get longer but I mean in a different way. I am taking today off of exercise. So drained from the worry of the doctor today. Hopefully I will be able to feel the energy tomorrow.
