bittersweet

i thought i knew bittersweet...being a military wife & all.

you learn to accept those loving welcome homes, knowing full well it's only a matter of time before they are off again....
you learn that uprooting your family & leaving everything & everyone you know to be so you can be together, is better than the alternative...

today's lesson in bittersweet = the thrill of a new job, new challenges, new work, new people, new environment, better pay juxtaposed against one big negative, having to leave for work so early that i no longer get my mornings with my family. no more "time to wake up the baby" songs, no morning snuggles, no helping getting dressed or brushing teeth.

i will have to be at work before Z even wakes up.
