Work for nothing

Sometimes, I just feel like throwing in the towel.  I am the kind of person that always tries to see the bright side of things.  Having said that I will admit that there are moments in my life that it has been hard to do just that.  Well, in spite of everything that we have been through this past six months or so, I have felt pretty good about it all.  I never had the feeling we wouldn’t be able to make it. 

My husband, on the other hand, is the exact opposite of me.  Every single time he gets upset about even a little problem we are having he wants to go back to France.  He is driving me crazy because you can’t build a life hopping around the world unless you happen to be rich which we are not. 

All I want is stability and a place to call home.  I have moved around my whole life.  I want to move to Florida and that will do me good until I am ready to retire and perhaps then I will move to France.

This girl wants to put down some roots.  I am not running away from problems.  Nope.  I am tired of running.

    Thank you. I think he is just going through the worst part of his homesickness that started about a month ago. He is not happy about not being able to work and staying home with the kids. Once he is able to work and we are saving more money than the moment, I think he’ll feel better. I need to be more forgiving and understanding. After all I know how it is to live in another country.

    Aah – just been catching up here again.

    It sounds so hard. Pumpkin – you are amazing. Two jobs!

    My heart goes out to you and your family – it’s not easy, what you’re going through. I have been there, done that and I know how difficult and demoralising it can sometimes feel.

    I am rooting for you girl. Keep plodding…we out here care about you.
