Ever been to the pumpkin patch with 3 kids on your own?

We had a little family scare. My brother has been depressed lately and called last night to talk to my other brother about all the issues and such. Then this morning he texted my mother and brother and just said, "I love you." They sent a message back and got nothing and we spent all day trying to get in touch with him. Totally had everyone worried that he had done something dreadful. We did finally get in touch with him and he just went and took someones shift at work and that was all. Scary though.
I did go to the pumpkin patch today. I did pretty good on food but we did eat out. It was a horrible day. I couldn't find the place and was searching for hours. We got there and the baby instantly fell in mud, lost a shoe and his sock was covered in it. The girls had to carry around pumpkins and all I could think of was how I wanted to put my foot up the ....of the PSO members who told me that I shouldn't say a word about my Dh being gone because they deal with the same issues with their Dh's there...I was so pissed, 2 girls, a 18 month old, 3 pumpkins, an umbrella stroller, squash, rain, mud and the whole deal...all on my own! I'm sure they deal with that all the time because their husbands just walk away and leave them there...right. So in short, I didn't get all the walking that I wanted in today But I did get the 6 reps of strength training! Also I didn't do good on my water intake either.
I did however get in tons yesterday. I dropped the girls off at a party and went to the gym. Did 60 mins on the ellip, 10 on the tread mill and then walked to and from the party without the kids for about 30 mins. I only managed to do one set of strength since the gym nursery closes early and I didn't know. How embarrassing to be called to get your kid cus you are late. LOL. I did get in all of my water! 12 cups and all my food!
My house though hasn't changed much but I am working on it. Right after coming home from the pumpkin patch (at about 7pm) I ran to the house, grabbed a basket of dirty clothes and headed to the laundry mat. I'm drying them at home because I didn't want the kids out and about all day long. I'm proud at the fact that I didn't just come home and call it a day.
Well, the count down has begun...10 more days until dh arrives!
