11/12

Friday, November 12, 2010

Awesome day today so far. The dishwasher magically stopped leaking today & seems to be working, knock on wood. Ya!! Watched a couple of my oldest daughters friends since they didn't have school 1 mom had to work and the other was bringing her mom to the Dr.'s The girls were all so good and entertained each other well. SIL came over b/c I had a bunch of baby stuff to give her. I think I overwhelmed her w/the amount of clothes I gave her and that was only half of it, lol. I've given her almost everything so I don't think she'll need a baby shower. Went to the park w/the mom who worked in the am to cont. the playdate w/her son & my DS had a meltdown due to exhaustion so thankfully the other mom who brought her mom to the Dr.'s offered to watch my oldest and my son passed out in his car seat while I went to pick up my other DD @ preschool and am enjoying the quiet of just having my 2 itty bitties. TGIF Have a great weekend!

Happy? Veterens day! Wow I was surprised to see I hadn't posted blogs here in a couple days. Tues was my bday & I had a great night w/my BF & got to know a new friend better emoticonIt was great to spend a little time w/dh yesterday am before having to drop him off @ the train. Enjoyed an emoticondinner w/my BF and her family last night. I was a little bummed to find my less than 2 month old dishwasher leaking this am. Bummed I have to wait until business hours before calling to get it fixed. I plan on getting some exercise @ farm later w/a couple buddies and their kids after packing a healthy lunch. How about you, any good cardio, st, or meal plans?

I'm so happy DH came home from his trip this afternoon. He let me take a nice long needed nap and I feel so refreshed and much better now. I've done so much better nutritional today than I have in several days. I got a cute kids ratatouille cookbook @ the library yesterday and made easy Faux Escargots (which is basically a sandwich wrap cut into slices for the snail shell and a pickle for the snail) then for dinner we made pizza using 100% whole wheat english muffins w/marinara sauce and mozzarella (pepperoni for those who wanted it)) and home made oven baked french fries. Then we had some yummy frozen yogurt for dessert. I love cooking w/the kids. They're so much more likely to eat it. Hopefully I don't stay up too late now and ruin it for tomorrow.

    It sounds like you had a wonderful day!! That was so sweet of your hubby to let you nap. I bet the kids loved having daddy home and all to themselves.

Enjoyed getting my hair done last night then being able to go out & show it off w/a buddy and her crew. Had a nice walk @ the mall w/my BF this am emoticon& then did some retail therapy. Wish I was wearing a pedometer. Treated myself to a mani this afternoon & then tonight while our girls were in tumbling class her and her dh treated me to a margarita as an early bday present emoticonI should be happy to have so many emoticonpeople in my life but just feel sad and binged tonight and last night. I'm going to do better! Tomorrow's a new day. I was thinking of doing some yard sales but am thinking I might just stay home and do chores or bring the kids to the library. They'd love that. What about you?

I completely understand where you are coming from ~ facing similar issues here (although my children are a little older making things a bit easier), but I also miss my DH when he works and travels so much.

Staying home with the kids is a difficult decision and sometimes feels thankless... I don't think a lot of people realize how difficult it can be, especially emotionally. Keep in mind that you are doing the best that you can do for your family as is your hubby. I think we forget that as we get caught up in the mundane activities of everyday life.

I hope you have a happy birthday. I"m sorry your hubby will be out of town.

    I think I'm sad b/c I feel like a lonely single SAHM. I love & miss my DH very much. He's a great husband, provider and father but really wish he was around more. I try to schedule any appt's for myself or the kids for nights or weekends so he can watch the kids and have some quality time w/them but he often works late or is traveling so unfortunately I very often feel like I can't rely on him to be around & am stuck scrambling for a sitter or have to bring the kids or just cancel altogether. A couple nights ago I had scheduled a sitter for an evening hair appt & think it's a waste to feel like I look awesome to just go home to go bed so thankfully a great friend of mine let me tag along w/her to celebrate one of her BF's bday for a little bit. I found out her dh forgot hers. Misery loves co. So needless to say our eyes weren't bloodshot from a drink and then last night I found out that on my bday DH was thinking of staying in Boston after he has to work a really long day & stay @ a hotel to sleep b/c he has to leave for a flight the next day so when I started choking up he quickly changed his plans to come home really late to make me happy but it isn't really working for either of us. Sorry I could go on and on but this is already probably TMI to be on here. I know it sucks for him too b/c he's exhausted & am sure he wishes he could be home more as well but sacrifices so I can be a SAHM and afford nice things to make us happy, vicious circle that then makes me feel selfish and bad for wanting my cake and being able to eat it too. Now I have to stop feeling emoticonfor myself now and paste that emoticonback on my face now for myself, family and friends. emoticon
