on my own... briefly

My husband is away this week. He is a minister and he officiated a funeral today for a dear family friend that knew him since he was born. I am glad he went- it is where he should be. But I sure do miss him!

This single-parenting stuff is for the birds. I don't know how all you single mamas out there do it. I am exhausted and it has only been three days!

I will say I've managed to keep it relatively together... the kitchen is clean, the dishes are done, I've been doing laundry... I even folded and put a bunch of it away! The kids are all clothed and fed and cared for. I managed to have a quick shower last night after the kids were all asleep so theoretically I won't scare anyone away with my stench.

But here is the thing... I only have to do this for 5 days. My mom was a single parent. She did it all by herself for my whole life. I think that is amazing.

And tonight I watched the season finale of Grey's Anatomy and it was all intense and scary and sad... and I am prone to nightmares so it was pretty stupid of me. I don't know why. I am a grown woman and yet still have nightmares occasionally. I am hoping to avoid them tonight... usually I snuggle up to my hubby and feel a lot better. I am also leaving a couple lights on.

I am seriously considering snuggling up with my daughter just so I am not all by myself!

I'm pathetic I know. But I just don't sleep as well when my hubby is away.

Hurry home Doug! I miss you!

Plus I am really really really tired. I hope you are getting lots of extra sleep because I am so going to need a nap when you get home!
