Not just me struggling with summer it seems....

Him: I was making him lunch & had tears reason...just started, Idk.. been couple days of down & I don't feel much better...maybe after school starts... Idk what it is. But weather didn't help...

Me: You've got lots going on. And it's been a long, not very nice summer. And you've been busy constantly. So, understandable.

Him: Just not wearing well on my heart...I guess. I know the reasons, just, doesn't help me accept it...:(

Me: Well, can you accept, that you can't be everywhere, doing everything. You are doing the best you can. And that's all anyone can do.

Him: I know, just feels like I keep losing ground some days...& it doesn't get caught up. I just feel real fragile lately.

Me: So? What's the solution for that? Does something need to give? What would that be? And no, I'm not volunteering :)

Him: :) Good.. I wasnt asking anyway.

We both need some normal back....

9 days till normal... tick tick tick..

This made me smile. And I can see why he loves you!

You are such a strong woman! I read (most) your posts and it shows so clearly! Heart heart!!

Hang in there. Only nine more days to go... For me, "normal" hasn't happened in such a long time that I wouldn't recognize it if it showed up on my doorsteps ;)

There is purpose in the way things change for the two of you. It may seem difficult right now, but, in the long run, you are laying the foundation for a communal future. I do worry about him a bit, though. He seems to be under a lot of stress and pressure.

Humans, in general, don't handle uncertainty well. (There is something to be said for the protestant battle cry, "You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free.") The sooner things settle, the better for all of you. The decisions have been made, the plans have been worked out - all that needs to happen is for him to find a (different) job and for her to (finally) move out. It will be such a relief to escape that state of suspension and uncertainty... ;))
