Today I start being a single parent for a week. Hubby is off on a couple of business trips and won't be home til Friday. I told him last night that even though I don't like that he is going I am not feeling as nervous as I normally do when he leaves town. That is HUGE progress. It is what it is and there is nothing I can do to change it. All I can do is take it moment by moment and day by day.
Today is going well so far. I got Hubby and Butterfly off this morning and then hit the ground running. I have 2 of the 3 beds changed that need it and am on my second load of laundry. I got the house cleaned last night so that is all set to go too. With any luck I will have a few spare moments to go through some more boxes in the basement to get things ready for our garage sale in a couple of weeks. It is time to purge things that we are no longer using.
I am hoping that in the coming weeks I will be able to get a book shelf for the girls' room and get all of their toys in the basement play room. That way we have a "quiet area" and a "play area". I think that will help ensure the naps that are still needed by my kids.
Over the last month I have eliminated dairy, soy and gluten from my diet. I am very pleased with how I feel and pleased that Dragonfly seems to be doing ok too. I still wish I could figure out why she is still super gassy and fussy at night..every night. Since Hubby is gone this week I think that my kids will be eating more like me as well. I will be cooking much less pasta and using breads less as well. The kids actually like salads so we might have those for lunches.
Well, I am off to go fold some laundry! Hope you all are having a great Monday!
