The perils of single motherhood

I really am glad that Scott has a job finally, and a little time apart certainly helps after a couple of years of 24 hours a day together. But good LORD, he needs to find another job. He has been gone more often than he has been home ever since starting this job. We knew that he would have to be gone tomorrow, and for three days next week. Well, they let him know this afternoon that he has to go on a trip in between. He has to go somewhere tomorrow, then fly tomorrow night out to California. He comes home Saturday night, then leaves back out Monday morning. He doesn't come back home until late Friday night.

At least I'm in between classes until January.

So, it is almost two weeks of single parenting. I don't know how people do it all of the time, other than that they don't have a choice. That's the response I use when people ask me how I 'do it' (parent twin boys). 'I didn't realize I had a choice.'

I hope Matthew gets over his stomach bug soon. He stayed home today, and since he isn't totally well he'll have to stay home tomorrow. I hope my mom can help out while I work tomorrow since I have a project launching at the end of the week.

On a more positive note, I've found some great deals recently on things for the kids. I got them a couple of belts, some new shirts that were on sale for $2 each. I'm trying to find some footed pajamas for this winter, but haven't found good deals yet. I need to look on Ebay, but you never know how thick or what the actual condition is. Matthew has become attached to some dinosaur footed pajamas - he's a dinosaur nut. He wants to wear them EVERY night, but I am NOT washing them every day. No way :) Hmm, guess I might take a look on Ebay anyway.
