Last April James took a new job offered to him. With that new job came new responsibilities, a new commitment and a longer commute. He drives from Corona to Monrovia everyday. Just today it dawned on me how tough it has been and how much I miss him being home by 530pm. He leaves around 6am every morning and gets home at 7pm-730 every night. I have gotten used to it but there are some days . . . like today . .. . when moving right next to his job seems like something we should do. We aren't . . . we've talked about it and that's not happening but somedays I wish we were right next door. He's been working hard. The commute is about an hr and 15 minutes. We've both been working hard and I believe that it will pay off. He loves this work he has been doing which makes me happy. He works for an Energy Consulting firm. My days are filled with grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, playing with the kids and working on different things with them. My grandma moved down the street a couple months ago and we spend almost everyday visiting her. In the evenings, I work on school and trying to get this home to look like a home. I'm grateful for these trials though because I know that we are growing and becoming stronger!
