I have a new respect for single moms.....

I can handle when Greg goes out of town a few nights during the week. In fact, I am a pro at it. I have my routine down and I actually enjoy one or two nights of quiet. However, weekends are another story! Greg has been gone since Friday and I did everything alone. That included two soccer games ( and chasing Noah at one of them), a Spring Fever Festival at school ( and chasing Noah as he slid down a slide a zillion times in the HEAT), church, playing outside (and chasing Noah), breaking up sibling fights, homework battles, and the list goes on. I haven't slept well and I think I am just so exhausted from doing everything that I could probably go to sleep now at 6pm! So, I don't know how single moms do it. I am talking about NO BREAK and NO HELP whatsoever. A tropical island with a book and a drink is sounding really good right now............hey I can dream, right? ;)

And chocolate.

I am so bad.

I hope you were able to wind down tonight and get some rest!! Lose yourself in the latest Karen Kingsbury book-their lives seem so perfect don't they? Well, if you don't think about the car wrecks, unwed mothers, cancer, paparazzi...other than that its great!!
Seriously, if you feel like screaming tommorrow-call me and I will yell with you :)

I also dont' know how single Moms do it...Most single Moms don't have any income coming in from the "men" either making it that much harder.

Hey...it's temporary- it'll make you appreciate all the help even more. :)

Hang in there...you need to come spend a few days here. :)
