Back to one

Early this year, hubby received a notification on his transfer to Sri Aman beginning March. So this morning after a breakfast with him, hubby has to drive more than 2-hours on the wet road under heavy rain to the remote town.



It is neither near nor far, but again, he will have to be away from the family due to work whether he likes it or not. And again, just a month shy of a year, I am back to one. A solo parent, taking care of the "fort" and my 3 kids.

Been there, done that. I guess it would not be any difference or harder than last year. Of course, the kids and I will miss hubby around the house but at least we got to see him on weekends if he can make it.

Just wonder how long he would be stationed in the new branch this time?? Anyhow, wish him all the best, take care of himself well there.

You are a super mama, I am sure you can do it, and don't worry, you can see your hubby during weekends, they say distance makes relationship fonder

I've been to Sri Aman before, nice town. I used to go when I was working in Kuching.

Actually, it's not considered far over here. A lot of people live in Seremban and work in KL and it's over an hour to drive to work in the morning. However, it takes me 40 minutes to get to KL from my house too so it works out if you work in Sg Buloh or somewhere to that side of KL.

However, things in Sarawak are different - our roads aren't as good and it's not as wide (no 4 lane highways) so it makes driving a lot longer.

Ouch, I feel the pain for you, dear! Not easy juggling 3 kids alone. Nonetheless, you're a supermum & I'm sure you'll manage well :D

Oh dear! Hang in there, you can do this. I wish I can say something positive for you but I feel so heavy hearted reading this.

But I know you are one strong momma and your kids are very well brought up so yeah, you can do this. John is a very lucky guy to be married to such a capable wife. Stay strong and hugs.
