This week I have been on the truck with my dear husband. The little ones are visiting their aunt for the week. It is so fun having some alone time with my beloved. The time for ourselves has been sorely needed. I was getting stressed over the past year or so and this is providing the break that I needed. I will be gone 7 days total.
Being out here, I see first hand how much of a difference the canning has made. We don’t have to eat out unless we choose to. There are plenty of meals on the truck already. The only thing we need to buy is milk for our breakfast cereal and occasionally a drink, such as beloved’s coffee or my juice. Other than that, we have all the food needed.
It feels strange to be on the truck again. Last time I was on the truck like this, I was still team driving with beloved. We left that job together when I was 6 months pregnant with Little Miss. Hard to imagine that was 6.5 years ago. In many ways it does not seem like it was that long ago. Yet, I look at the fact I have 2 little ones, ages 4 and 6, and I guess I had simply not realized how much time has passed.
I am enjoying the time with beloved, but also am looking forward to being home again. I have been doing a bit of computer work, looking up curriculum and other homeschool resources. Now that I am getting the curriculum together, I am looking toward getting started.
