has to gets to be in Las Vegas all week for work. He is staying at the MGM Grand on the governments dime of course. Lucky him. Don't feel sorry for him for having to travel for work, he wanted to go and pretty much chose to go. Neither one of us are the gambling type but Vegas is Vegas and I can't imagine 5 nights of real sleep. That hopefully explains my thought and mood for the week. It is going to be hard, lonely, and stressful this week. I found out about this lovely surprise the night before Thanksgiving. I am already tired and exhausted and it's only Monday morning. I am in deep trouble. Cara promises me that it gets a little easier as the kiddos get older, please let her be right. Being a "single parent" does suck!
We were hoping to get a lot done this week with birthday plans and Christmas plans but I guess most of it will have to wait. I know I will get through this week. I always do. But I am only human and I am NOT looking forward to this week. It is times like these when I wish I had a paying job outside the home. If I had a paying job at least I would have "maybe" 5 minutes of alone time this week. I don't feel like this all of the time, just this week.
I am going to miss him like crazy of course. I will be so happy to have him back home safe and sound so I can at least use the restroom by myself again in the evenings. It will be nice to have a little help with diaper changing duty in the evenings when he gets back.
By the end of this week I am going to feel like I am TOTALLY covered in poop with all the diapers I will be changing round the clock (I have two very poop filled boys in diapers). I am going to need all the luck and company I can get this week.
And on a side note I am not Lynette from Desperate Housewives. I am getting disgusted with this show.
I didn't get much done during my computer break but it was nice to step away a bit even though I missed all my efriends very much. I did get Austin's birthday invitations picked out and mailed. I also got his balloons and cake ordered.
I will update later this week about our first Thanksgiving back home. It was interesting to say the least.
Last but not least, I DO KNOW how lucky and blessed I am to have my boys and dh, but it's hard sometimes. Thank you for listening to me whine. And yes, I would like some cheese with this whine, thanks for asking.
