Past 6 weeks has been pretty tough on every one. DW and DS have been continuously falling ill, with each's tail-end of the sickness tagging a fresh trigger in the other. I have been very very very busy given the impending change in career and upcoming uproot-and-move. Trying to understand what an unknown business means and at the same time trying to close out things here and finding alternate education for DS in the place we are going to move to has had me completely hooked on to every other thing other than spending time at home.
With all this, RDI has gone down the drain, ENKI too accompanied that. Cold and illness implies morning walks (SI) has been canceled. Add to these my own absence from home due to travel; resulting in the most undesirable situation. Its the worst-case scenario happening!!!
But, I believe things are a-changing for good - the rhythm is being re-established. I also know there is going to be one huge disruption when DS will be told about the move - he will not like it one bit. That would be the worster-case scenario.
What could be the good thing out of this ? That we have seen the worst-case scenarios; one more time ? And we will see more ? Like its said in Hollywood movies, "is this your best shot?"!!! Good, we are still standing and fighting... :) Jokes apart, although its frustrating, mostly for DW, thats the essence - just need to keep standing and be at it... relentlessly; and assume all these dips as minor aberrations thats bound to happen anywhere and in every other lives. But just perhaps, more at a different level of complexity...
ps: This is a good read on bad-days.
