7 more days

Josh left on Wednesday morning for another business trip. This time he is in China Lake in California. He will be gone until next Friday, a week and a half away from home. I have no idea how I am going to survive! LOL. He has never been gone that long before and I really don't like it when he is gone. But I am grateful that he is not gone more or for longer. When we went to Destin, one of Josh's co-workers was there as well and he was going to be there for 3 weeks! Yikes! And, here is the kicker, him and his wife have FIVE boys between the two of them. I tip my hat to you Shelly, wow! So, it could be worse.

Many people have said to me, "I don't know how you do it when Josh is gone" and quite frankly I am not sure how I do it. Will requires alot of care, the feedings alone are enough to drive me batty. Even though he will be two in a month he is like a 12 month old in his development. So he needs constant supervision, constant. He is in to everything, climbs on everything, and puts everything in his mouth. Caroline, well, she talks more than any child should, I really wonder if her jaw is sore by the end of the day. I am not kidding, non-stop talk.

I guess I just go to auto-pilot. I just get through the day the best I can. I loose my cool faster, we eat crap for dinner because I don't have the time or energy to cook, and my house looks like WW 3 took place in it. Let's just say that it is not my finest hour as a Mommy. I hate every minute that Josh is gone, it sucks, but I just do what I gotta do.

I am exhausted and it is only Friday, I still have 7 days!!

Best of luck...remember a clean house and balanced meals don't mean you are a good mommy. Just keep you head above water and make sure nobody gets hurt!! :)

Wade was gone one night this week and my house was a mess, the kids ate crap for dinner and I was exhausted, so i will be saying an extra prayer for you. Please let me know if you need ANYTHING. We are leaving on Sunday for vacation and we'll be back Wednesday night. I'd love to have Caroline over on Thursday, that might give you a little break, at least from the constant chatter (I have my own, so i know). I'm taking the kiddos to the free movie at Edwardsville theatres (Horton hears a Who), so she is welcome to come along and then come play at our house for a bit. Let me sorry this got long! :)

Praying for you! I can't imagine my husband being gone that long, and know I would go batty too.
