Adjust whether you like it or not because life doesn't hold still.
It seems that with a family that continues to grow up, each season brings change. We are down to only two children in the house right now and although the decrease from nine children has been so gradual, it always feels a bit dramatic when another one flies out of the nest.
There's continuous blundering as I figure things out. Laundry and meals and dishes and cleaning and household rules and pet care and a host of things are still out of whack around here. It seems to be much more of a challenge to go down in family size that all those years of increasing in family size.
All the thoughts and ideas and ponderings on this topic would take me much more than five minutes to write about, so I will leave it at that and revisit this topic after October. Perhaps by then I will have it figured out, right?
So until then, I will make peace with a bit more quiet in my household - which I've longed to have for a long time - and continue to day by day adjust.
