The McDonald's Mommy

Last night was hell on me. There is no other way to put it. Since hubby has become a travelpro with this out of town job that he's been working on, it's been really tough on us all. I know it's hard on him being away from the kids and myself so much, but it's a definite challenge for me because I have to tend to the daily house hold things, my job, and children all alone. Our evening routine is pretty consistent with or without Brien most days. But, when you throw a sick kid into the equation it makes matters much more difficult. Tyler ran fever all weekend. I had to take him to the doctor yesterday and it turns out that he has a throat infection. Last night he was not in the best of moods. He whined for me to hold him most of the night and didn't want to sleep in his own bed at bed time. This made getting up at 5am extremely difficult, nearly impossible for me.

My saving grace is that with no hungry husband at home in the evenings, McDonalds has quickly become a family favorite making clean up a breeze! ;)

My friend, you and I are living parallel lives. My kids aren't ill, thank God, but I sure could use a break from the single-parent thing.

Great news, though - we pick up hubby from the airport in about two hours. YIPPEE!!!!!
