To having Rob gone. I don't have to do as much laundry, groceries are going to be cheaper, and I get to spend more time with my daughter. The last one is the best benefit. Let me explain why. We are pretty much the same, down the attitude, so we butt heads a lot. So for both of us, this a time to try not to butt heads and become closer. I think so far it is working. I haven't yelled at her as much, and she has been pretty good here at home and still doing really well at school.
Now of course, the cons outweigh the pros as stated in previous blogs, but for now as long as I look at the little bit of positive I have, it helps with the coping.
