Realizing what I am capable of
Sunday, August 25, 2013
As most of my Gecko teammates are aware my marriage is teetering on the edge of divorce with no real way to pull it back that I can see right now. The husband has gone out of town to spend time with his parents and shop in Houston for the weekend. This has left me to hold down the fort on my own. I was terrified of that prospect at first but now I have realized that even though being a single mom won't be easy I can do it. I just have to be very diligent about utilizing my time to the fullest. It is not even 11 pm and I have done 5 loads of laundry, bathed the dogs, prepared dinner, bathed my kiddo, and now he is watching a movie. While he watches his movie I am going to clean up from dinner and get the dishwasher going. I am concerned that if we do end up divorcing that going to school, doing homework, taking care of my son and my dog along with her pups very soon and keeping my house running may be a difficult feat. I'm confident with a little bit of planning that everything can get taken care of including taking time to exercise. At least during the week I can take my kiddo to the kids club for a couple hours a day so I can work out. This has been a difficult but enlightening weekend.
