A new job with a new schedule has not been easy to adjust to. After three weeks, I find that I’m still feeling a little out of sorts. I love that I have extra time in the mornings, but I’m not making the best use of it and getting home a little later in the evenings, well, it creates a whole new set of challenges. Meal schedules have not been easy to navigate and cleaning is hit-and-miss at best. Thankfully, my family has been very supportive and self-sufficient when necessary.

I’m frustrated that I have not been able to take pictures every day like I had planned but I am also concerned about the limited time that I have with my family as evenings are a mad dash home, make dinner (if they haven’t already), throw in a load of laundry, help with homework (unless it’s math), cleanup from dinner, and all the other little things that having a home and family entail.

As frustrating as it can all be, I have to admit, I love it. I love my family and the crazy life that we live together in this sweet little home. I appreciate that we’re all pretty flexible and able to adjust to changing¬†plans and spontaneous ideas. I enjoy every chance we get to hang out with family and friends and I adore quiet evenings on the couch watching our favorite television shows, even if it does mean that the dishes don’t get done or a load of laundry has to wait another day. And, I appreciate that I now have a career that I sincerely enjoy and look forward to.

Adjusting our schedules has forced me to get back to basics and what really matters. I know that as we get more accustomed to my new schedule that I will be able to spend a little more time on my photography and other things I enjoy but for now…I’m content to take advantage of these moments when they come and just enjoy the love and life that I have.
