I've started writing this blog post 3 times now, so hopefully I might actually post it this time! Life is so hectic and I don't know how it happened but our 6 weeks in Brisvegas is coming to an end. We leave on Monday and have had a great time catching up with people and spending time together as a family. It's been such a blessing having Hubs around to see all the changes in Chance that I've been able to see, and I don't know what I'm going to do when he has to go back to work a week after we get back to Wang! I really love all the get togethers and socialising that comes with staying in Brisbane, but to tell you the truth I'm ready to go home. That's really hard for me to say as I don't want our families to think that I want to leave them, but it's really tiring to be on our best behaviour for 6 weeks solid without much down time.
Having said that, I can't wait for the fam to come and visit us down south again asap. It's been so amazing having that support - always having someone there to take Chance for an hour while we grab some sleep or do some cooking or write a blog post. Like just now I heard Chance cry, followed by my Dad's voice saying "Hello there. What's going on? Maybe you need a cuddle." I'm really going to miss that when we leave. Just thinking about it is giving me a headache :-)
We're going to spend a couple of days is Melbourne catching up with friends before heading back to Wang on Wednesday. I'm a little nervous about being so far away from our support networks, and with Hubs working full-time hours, but I know we've made some really good friends who are more than happy to help out when we need or want it. In the mean time, I just have to remember that everything always works out. Not always how we think it will, but it works out none the less.
Thank you to everyone for all their love and support and best wishes over the last 9 weeks, and in particular the last 6 weeks. We've enjoyed the chats and the beers and games of ping pong and pool, and watching the cricket and tennis, and celebrating life's special occasions with you all. If I don't get to blog again until we hit Wang, please forgive me, and know that I have lots to share with you in the coming weeks and months.
