Turns out tumblr is not for me, I’m heading back to themaidenmetallurgist.com to pick up where I left off. Not sure if I have any readers left, all this moving around sure is flaky. But if you’re game, head back with me. Thanks all

My Little Life
My mom was in town for a visit over the Holiday weekend. I love my mom, and I like my mom, and my mom gets me.
We were talking about people we know and about us and I was trying to explain, in a way how much I love my little life.
I am perfectly content with my little life.
I have a little job, and I get, sadly, a little paycheck. I drive a little car and I live in a little house. I am married to my little husband and I have a little son, both of whom who I love big.
We have friends with big exciting lives, and friends with maybe smaller less exciting lives, and I’m so happy to fit in my little niche.
I may not feel this way forever, but today I do and today I’m grateful for the happiness I’m finding in being small.
We are getting used to a big huge change here in Eisenbergia.
In January I started a very challenging, yet very exciting and fulfilling job with my company. The hours were long and crazy, the work was hard and exhausting. But work me was happy.
Home me wasn’t my best self I’m afraid. Work took almost everything I had, what little I had left I gave to my husband and child. I wasn’t a great wife and mother, and I was a terrible friend. Our family has been operating in survival mode. Making it work. But I really dropped off the face of the earth.
I’m thrilled to tell you that last week my schedule returned to normal, 5 days a week, 8 hours a day. No nights.
No more not seeing Henry 4 days a week, in fact I’m home for dinner every night now.
Josh and I are still adjusting. But we’re happy.
Fortunately Henry hasn’t seemed to notice one way or the other.
