It's been a few days

It's been a few days since I last posted anything new about what is going on around our house. L's birthday on Friday left him very depressed as it usually does. Yesterday he seemed to start getting into a more 'normal' mood. Though it is difficult to tell since he is sleeping a lot during the day and up all night again. It is one of those periods were we seem to have reached a truce for the most part. No yelling, nobody really getting upset. Just no real interaction between us either aside from necessities. That is until about 10:30pm last night when L wanted to talk about moving again. It ended with him being upset with me for 'being selfish' and for 'stopping [him] from fullfilling his dreams'.

We're going on a short trip to the beach soon (Let's hope for no tarballs while we are there) and I am hopeful that it will help all of us to get away from it all and to just relax. We need it

A. from Slippedfromtheliving.com said this in a blog post she posted yesterday:

I'm feeling boring - which is I'm pretty sure what other people would call "normal" or "stable" [...]. This is where I want to be.

and I know for us it is true as well. While others are looking for excitment, thrills and the next big thing, we are happy with boring and 'normal'. L's illness gives us enough 'excitment' and I have had my fill at this point. I long for boring because it makes things so much easier for all of us.
