Truthfully, I have spent a large portion of my time here in New Hampshire feeling sorry for myself. I have had terrible morning sickness, a challenging time in my new position, and have missed my son (and his cute dad) desperately. Every other professional rotation I have ever completed has been before I had Aiden. This small detail has absolutely changed the way I feel about being away. I think of him all of the time.
I had the amazing opportunity to spend the last two weeks with Josh and Aiden. It was amazing. We swam, went to book/toy stores, cuddled and just enjoyed each other. Saying goodbye was one of the hardest things I have had to do. On our last day, Josh reminded me that I have five weeks left, I am on the downhill of this three months – don’t spend it sitting in the hotel room feeling sorry for myself.
So, today, I got out.
The SeaCoast of New Hampshire is absolutely breath-taking. It is as if, progress stopped. The gorgeous construction that was already in place is frozen in time. There are no large hotels, condo buildings or chain restaraunts. I really was blown away by the simplicity and raw beauty.
I take it back, New Hampshire. I haven’t given you a fair shot, and believe me, I will take a better look over the next five weeks.
