I don’t know what it is about when my husband leaves for a week away for work but literally everything seems to fall apart. And when I say everything…I mean E V E R Y T H I N G!!! Allow me to explain….
So my husband left on Monday for a routine road trip to Las Vegas and Arizona. This is typical every few months because of his job. As per usual, I’m left to figure things out here at home…i.e. school drop offs n pick ups, dance practice, play dates, homework, baby duty, cleaning up dog pee (yea there’s that too, ugh)…shall I go on? So while my hubby, bless him, is hustling his way thru the great state of Arizona…I’m here losing my you know what!!!!
I’m not exactly sure why everything falls to pieces but it does. Let’s start with Monday……Monday my sweet little angel woke up not quite herself, making me very concerned so I took her to the doctors’. Turns out it was just a little virus and nothing major (Thank God), but nonetheless she was very cranky….on top of that my son…oh my son. Well let’s just say, his little tude needs to take the backseat! What is it with ages 3-6? Definitely not my fave with him…I’m just sayin! Maybe it’s because we’re so alike that we butt heads, but man oh man does he know how to push my buttons. So, of course, I’m reprimanding him for the majority of the afternoon that day…and yesterday…aaaaaaand today…oy’ vey!
Then let’s talk about my oldest. Now on the reg she’s pretty level, no real issues minus the occasional copping of an attitude. But tonight…all drama was unleashed…I mean to the point of making herself sick…literally she ran to the bathroom. And then within 20 min being totally fine and happy again. Ummmm what just happened? Lord, help me when ‘Womanhood’ hits her….I’m feeling like it’s going to be any day now…no joke!!! Oh and did I mention I have 3 dogs, 1 of whom just happened to appear at our home 6 months ago. Now….don’t get me wrong, I’m an animal lover but this one has it out for me, I swear. I’m thinking her time with us may be coming to an end here soon…no no I’m not going to do anything rash, but a re-homing sitch might have to happen…and the other two, well they’re just old and jerks…haha! Ugh!
Anyways, do I sound crazy? I don’t know, maybe I do. Honestly, when my husband is gone, it’s a lot. A lot of drama and a lot of “extra”…you know what I mean? I have no clue how single parents do it? I mean, major kudos to them because its a lot to handle by yourself!!!
I love my babies, even the furry ones…it’s just hard to “Mom It” alone and I have felt like I was drowning the past few days. Usually there’s someone in the family that’s the glue that holds everything together….I’m really thinking that my husband might be it!!! In fact, I know he is!! When he’s here, all seems to run like a well oiled machine…when he’s not…well, you know.
Do you ever feel this way? Or is it the opposite in your home? Comment below and let’s chat…
Until then my friends,
