I haven’t updated since last week! As most of you know, Benji got the job in Memphis. Our life has been slightly chaotic ever since, so blogging was the last thing on my mind.
Just to update everyone, Benji started his new job today. We both decided that financially, it would be wise for me to stay in Tuscaloosa until Harper is born, the main reason being our insurance. We are both covered through my job. Benji will have insurance through his new job, but we think the pregnancy would be considered pre-existing and therefore would not be covered. Now, I still have to do some research on this, but as of right now, I’m staying put until November.
Benji left yesterday. It was terrible. I basically started crying as soon as I woke yesterday morning. It continued in random spurts at church. I cried after church. I cried when he left and continued to do so for about an hour after he was gone. It…was…awful. I’m not normally a cryer, but I sure did a lot of it yesterday. I’m pretty sure my cat was freaked out by it. It was the loud kind. You know, when you’re alone, and there is no one around to be freaked out by your sobs, so you just don’t hold back? Yeah…eh.
But…I feel MUCH better today. After praying about it, I feel peace. I think I just needed to get past the first day. Hopefully this next three months won’t be so bad. I’m sure with these raging hormones I’ll have more days where I just cry my eyes out, but I guess that’s just part of it.
Even though it sucks temporarily, I’m so so thankful that God has provided Benji with this amazing opportunity! I’m sure it’s going to lead to great things and I can’t wait to see where He takes us!
