one plus two minus one

Two weeks. It's been two weeks of this new way of doing things and so far, so good. My kid, she is amazing. She's embraced our new situation with joy and curiosity and already loves her new school. And they work her there, she's actually exhausted by the end of the day and her brain is full of new ideas. I think Five is the very best age so far. I am so in love with Five.

As for me, I am conscious every day that I am doing well in some ways and falling short in others. Without J everything falls to me and for the most part it's okay but his absence is a small ache, rising up on some days and quiet in others. We are only two weeks into this thing.

I have more to say but it will have to wait. One being in charge of Plus Two minus One means my math is off.

Five is good. Glad you're all doing well, and I can't wait to hear more.

It just keeps getting better, doesn't it.

Nice to hear from you!

I am glad to hear you say that about 5, because 4 1/2 is kicking my butt. And I'm also glad to hear that things are going well, at least for the most part. I hope that it continues to be so. :)

I don't know what I would do without Josh. I'm reasonably independent, but at the end of the day I want that camaraderie. Keep on, keeping on, jen. Glad you guys are doing well.

Happy New Year! It's nice to get an update, and learn that things are going pretty well.

And I'm glad to hear that 5 is a good age. We're just about to hit 4...

I love FIVE. And also six, seven, eight and nine. But maybe mostly five. I am so sad about your math being askew. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will be as it's supposed to be once more, soon.
