Starting over

Hubby has moved back here.  Been a week and things are going ok.  But I do realize we are in a "honeymoon" phase.  I will say that he is working overtime to make this work and I am not complaining.  He has not had labs done yet.  He has not seen a doctor yet.  He is doing great at keeping his anger in check.

He inherited his dad's chihuahua.  She broke her leg at a young age and had to have it amputated.  So now I am "mom" to 2 chihuahuas after 3 years of no pets.  That may be the biggest adjustment.  :)

The house is completely torn up and in total disarray as I would expect any time someone moves in or out.  So I am doing my best to stay patient with the mess.  Keeping busy working in my garden.  This is my 3rd summer and things are growing and blooming like crazy.  It keeps me sane!

Only time will tell how this will work out.  He kept his dad's place so I know he can always leave and go back and I am fine with that at the moment.  I want to keep the "legal separation" that we have in place for the time being.  Simply not willing to make changes of any kind and there is no reason to make snap decisions.  Hoping he will get labs done this week.

There is a saying "in the end it will be ok because it will be the end" and while I am not really ready to be the wife of a diabetic again, I have had a lovely 3 year break and perhaps I have built up the strength and had the rest that I need to see this through to the end.  Only time will tell.

And yes, he is still very non-compliant.  Last night alone he ate ice cream, a cinnamon roll, rollos....but I'm sure he's been eating just like that for the last 3 years.  I am trying so hard to keep my mouth shut!  No, I did not buy them, he did!  I have lost 35 pounds while he was gone and I am determined to keep it off!

Here's hoping week 2 is as good as week 1 was.
