And So It Begins...

At 6:00 a.m. tomorrow Shannon is leaving me for 13 days. I'm going to be a single mom of TWO little girlies while hubby is speaking at a conference.

Things I'm not looking forward to:
1. Grocery shopping on foot with one strapped to my chest and one in a stroller (or, if I'm brave, I'll just hold her hand...).
2. Being the one to get up with Lane in the sleeping in for me, not even until 7:00, which is when she usually gets up. If I want a shower, it'll have to be before then.
3. Doing all the dishes, all the cleaning, all the playing, all the diaper-changing, laundry-hanging, and so on, by myself, all the time.
4. No real adult conversation. I mean, I am a girl. I have like 5000 words to use each day, right? How am I going to use that many with my husband gone?!?

Things I am looking forward to:
1. Less laundry.
2. Less cooking.
3. Lots of time with my girlies since I'll be homebound for a lot of the time.

And that about sums it up. Pray for me!


  1. Michael left today. A full week in Peru, 5 days in Barbados. Yep. Barbados. Without me. Just doesn't seem right. We should Skype for sure. I know I'll have words to use up, too!

  2. Good luck!! I will be in the same position in March. The hubs will be gone for two and a half weeks and I'm already having panic attacks about it!
