The past week was hard. It wasn’t hard in an exceptional way — I’ve had hard weeks like these before and I’m sure I’ll have hard weeks like these again. There was one exception that made this past week different: for the first time in a long time I feel like Hubs is a true tag-team partner in all of this. He’s given a lot of support this week. 

Last night he suggested that I go out and get dinner alone and bring it back to the fam. That might not seem like much, but I’ve grown accustomed to needing to ask for that kind of alone time after a hard day/week. This time I didn’t have to ask. He suggested and I took him up on it.

So there’s the silver lining. Yes I didn’t get the results I wanted this week. But now I feel like perhaps my ducks are finally lining up to really take this on head first. Plus Bubs starts preschool in 10 days.
