The new normal

For over 4 years I would take the bus and the train to The Chosen One’s house on Fridays after the girls went to their dad’s house.

Now I stay home and The Chosen One comes home from work to our house.

And, now Hufflepuff stays home with me rather than going to her dad’s house.

It’s something new to get used to.

I was used to the hour and a half of alone time on the bus/train with books and podcasts to decompress.

The Chosen One was used to time alone in his house to decompress.

Now he has an hour’s commute rather than a 10 minute commute.

It’s the new normal.
