A Title Escapes Me

11 Jan

This morning felt like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Or a Hallmark commercial. Or maybe a Lifetime movie. Pick whichever comparison suits you the best. I simply choose to say it was awesome and made my day.

Today was Aaron’s first day back at work after being laid off for two months! The first day was held at corporate headquarters, where it is expected that everyone wear formal business attire. This morning I stood in my pajamas, with children squawking and running around me, while I straightened Aaron’s tie and fixed his collar. It was a rather surreal and, shall I say, grown up moment.

Everything went smoothly for him. Checked off boxes, signed papers, listened to company policy. Surprisingly, things went smoothly for us at home as well! I wrangled both kids in the FREEZING cold and snow to the chiropractor, all three of us took a two hour nap and Ella even ate her lunch! So far, so good. I’m hoping and praying that our painless adjustment continues.

As a kid side note ~ Poor Miles has his first cold of the season. The little man has a horrible stuffy nose, juicy productive cough, and struggles to sleep unless he’s in a raised position. Which means I don’t get much sleep, but such is the story of a mother. The bitter cold exacerbates his cough, so my goal is to keep us housebound tomorrow and Wednesday. We’ll see how long that lasts before we all go too stir crazy.

edited to add: Things like this encourage me so much! I appreciate each and every prayer offered for us during this crazy time of adjustment. We have two weeks of wonky training schedules then we switch over to his “normal” shift of 5am-5:30pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I’m taking over the weekend Sexton duties, so it’s a double adjustment for everyone. My friend Corey ran a HUGE marathon and included my prayer request for “painless adjustment” to her prayer shawl. Can you find it?
