Sunday, July 25, 2010

in a couple of days my husband with zakariya and ayyub will be going on holiday to tunisia.for those who don´t already ayman is already there.this will be the first time (apart from when i have been in hospital)that i will be alone since i got married.i am dreading it as i am really missing ayman already even though i have the others still here to keep me buzy and company so here is my list of things for the good.

1#i don´t have to get in btween the boys when they scrobble(this is only nr.1 as that is what they are doing at the moment and it is driving me nuts as i have a start of a headache.
2#don´t have to put on the washing machine everyday,just once a week if that(done 5 loads to day)
3#don´t have to hang the washing up
4#don´t have to iron the washing
5#don´t have to change wet beds from the kids in the middle of the night(had to do this twice last night which is why so many wash loads today)
6#don´t have to get up every four hours in the night to give zakariya his medicine.
7#can watch what i want on tv
8#can go as often as i like on the computer
9#can cook what i want
10#don´t have to cook if i don´t want to
11#don´t have to bake bread every day or at all if i don´t want to
12#can eat what i want when i want.
13#when i tidy up only have to do it the once(instead of the usual 10 times)as the kids aren´t there to mess it up again.
14#can go shopping in peace with out the kids badgering me for something.
15#can have long soaking baths without the worry of being disturbed half way though(i really hate that)
16#don´t have therapy,dr´s ,hospital appointment for kids to go to.
17#don´t have to do zakariya´s and ayman physio everyday.
18#don´t have to do the nebuliser(woo hoo do you know how much time that takes up alone)
19#can go out to visit freinds or for a meal as i don´t need to stay in because of the kids.
20#i can read a book
21#i can just do nothing

i think that is enough to be going on with but with that being said can someone please tell me why i feel like crying instead of being on top of the world because of the above list.

    The first time I was all alone after I got married and had children, was exciting and different. The first day, I didn't know what to do with myself. No structure without the children. The second day I began enjoying myself! I was ready for them to come home at the end of the week, but I enjoyed having time to myself.

    Enjoy, it won't be for long. Use this time to set some goals and work on yourself!

    One day you will look back and wish for this very day...When things seem to be so hectic you can't catch your breath. So sit back enjoy today and when everyone is back together again hug them extra tighter...

    Making a list of the positives is a good way to help you deal with your sense of loss. You will miss them. It is too bad that you can not go on holiday with them.

    #22 - You can look forward to a joyful reunion!

    Plan something special for when they get back. You will enjoy doing it.

    I know how you feel. My son is in his last year of High School and I don't know what I'll do when he goes off to college. I'll miss him and his friends always at my house being loud and crazy, eating all the food and making a mess. I complain but I really enjoy it. Just try to enjoy your alone time they will be back in no time at all.

    It is amazing how those things that seem to be bad are really some of the most wonderful things we do (laundry because you are caring for your kids, breaking up fights, cooking for your family, etc). You will be fine with your quiet time, but you will enjoy them returning - I am sure :)

    Because regardless of the time you take each and everyday to care for your children, they are still you children whom you love and adore! You're a good mom and you will probably feel a little "lost" without them just because you're not used to being on your own.

    Your life is so busy with taking care of your loved ones, that when you have a "moment" for yourself you miss the chaos. emoticon
