Todays Lesson

Complete the following equation...

3 well meaning, but needy children - 1 traveling father = _________ ?

Answer: One tired and cranky Momma!

***************************************

On top of being sick this week, I do not sleep well when Mr. Clean is gone. Just the comfort of him snoozing next to me is soothing and familiar. I have been married to the man for almost twelve years and grown quite fond of him so when he is missing, life just stinks. I am tired and grumpy to say the least (time for some Ramen Noodles).

If you are a homeschooling military Mom who has experienced deployment you have my permission to come and smack me upside my head for complaining about the measly 5 days my husband will be gone this week. Single parenting is not for the feeble minded (like myself lately) and knowing that there is an end in sight makes life much easier.

I must send out a shout of thanks and appreciation to my friend Susie who offered to come and hang out with me last night to ease the burden. She brought Mr. Holland's Opus with her and I am not sure I will ever recover. Now my eyes are puffy to boot. Stupid movie.

Oh, no, Angel!! Puffy eyes and two sad movies in one week....better steer clear of Because of Winn Dixie though it's an excellent movie...

Always glad to share a good-cry flick with you! :o) Want me to bring over Behind the Red Door as an encore tonight? LOLOLOL!!

Tears, chocolate, and chips...mmmm...

Shoot, my answer was:

Pizza & a movie for the kids, and a chai latte and quart of Ben & Jerry's AmeriCone Dream for mom. :)

I hope you feel better soon. Wish I was close enough to being you soup and take your kids. :)

Glad Susie was there for you. Hang in there, he'll be home tomorrow. Let him know you except a little R&R for yourself sometime this weekend!
