And It Is Only Day Two!!

I didn't realize how fortunate I was.

Tod left yesterday for a two week business trip to Seattle. At first I was really excited for him. A new city, a great opportunity, and a little change of scenery would be good for him. There was no way he was going to pass up this chance to work in Seattle. I don't blame him.

Usually when Tod gets home from work there is a collective, "Daddy's home!!" He gives me a kiss and wrestles with the boys. The family has dinner, talks, plays, watches TV, reads, then off to bed.

Yesterday was fine. It was actually a pretty fun day and flew by. Today has been very busy and is just now winding down. Brady has asked, "Hey..When is Daddy coming home?" about a dozen dimes. Jacob has asked me to throw the football then quickly gives up once he realizes that I don't throw with Daddy precision. They both want to wrestle but Mommy Rules are no fun. I have a movie to watch tonight and not looking forward to it because there will be no one to snuggle with.

I have many friends whose husbands travel each week. I bow down to you! I don't know how you do it. It is only day two of this two week journey into single parenthood. I may have to start happy hour a little early!

A Resolution Resolved

Every year I have made a New Years Resolution. Every year I have failed. I think the longest I have kept a resolution is March. That is pretty bad. This year it is going to be different.

I have decided NOT to make myself start the new year with a "have to". Of course I can better myself in several aspects. I just don't feel like January 1st is the one date to do that. It is now January 5th and I feel no guilt about this whole resolution thing.

I'm not going to stop doing, start doing, have more of, have less of, give more, or save more. I am going to just keep going, keep doing, and keep improving.
