Today is Writer’s Workshop! Yay! Always makes me smile to read through all the other blogs with similar content for the day.
The prompt I chose for today is:
Open Instagram and scroll down to the 4th photo shared by a friend. Share the photo, link to the person who posted it, and let it inspire a blog post.
Ironically, the instagram photo is one of Colorado related content. Posted by the fabulous blog writer, Sunday, over at Extreme Parenthood. She is fab! You must check her out. Anyhoo… I believe she is from Colorado and is planning a trip back. And so she posted this photo of the weather for her trip. SOOOOO beautiful there!
This made me sad to be away and so anxious to return. It has been so hard to be away from Colorado. To be away from our family, especially with the new baby. I am missing my family like crazy. Up until just a few weeks ago, Monk was asking almost on a daily basis to see someone from home. “Mama, can we go over to Grampa and Nana’s?” or “Mom, let’s go to Grams!” It occurred to me today that he hasn’t asked in a while. I think it has finally started to sink in for him that this is our home now. And now here we go uprooting him to another house next month. Oy. Parenting of the year.
But a digress. My point, the one I am fumbling around to find, is this. I miss home. I want to go back. It will always be home. I will always have the goal to get back there.
Now…. Somebody tell me a joke. I am having a shitty week.
