It’s only Wednesday? Really?

It is only Wednesday. It has been the loooongest week. I only wish that I was getting some stuff done in this seemingly never-ending week.

J. is gone this week. Again. It is the third straight week, but who is counting? And I know he is just as tired of traveling as we are of having him gone. And I also know that I shouldn’t be complaining, but…well, just indulge me. A few minutes, please?

Oh, I’m trying so very hard to be patient. But I believe I used up my very last ounce of patience. All gone. Oh, about 8am, on Monday morning. The girls have just been bickering about every last thing.

I have even pulled out the big guns, “Santa is watching and not going to stop at our house this year.” It works for about 10 minutes, then it is promptly forgotten. No amount of begging, pleading, or timeouts are working.

And the whining. My God, the whining! It is making my ears bleed.

And….ok, I’m….done. No more complaining.

So let’s look at a few sweet photos from a birthday party that we attended this past weekend, shall we?

Let us remember the sweet little girls that are hidden somewhere under the little monsters that seem to have taken over their bodies this week.



Today is another day. Monsters be gone.

    I know just how you feel. Nick is home now… but was gone to Calgary all last week… and then Houston the last 2 days. It’s killing me.

    I love the dresses! I commend you! Even though I have the parenting responsibilities from late afternoon until late morning the next day, I still get a few hours of help from Tim. Next time I feel like complaining about him working nights, I’ll remember your woes (and those who are parenting alone, with one parent oversees). Thanks for the reminder today that it could be worse. Hope the day gets better!

    I’m sorry it’s been such a hard week. Hang in there…just a couple more weeks, and then you’ll get lots of sweet famoly time with J!! the girls sure do look sweet…hard to believe those little angels could casue problems (but I believe it, oh my do I believe it, because mine LOOKS sweet and innoncent, too!).

    (((Hugs))) I don’t know why they do that, becoming such contrary little beings. Hope today has been a better day for you. Great pictures from the party…they do look like little sweeties there…no horns or anything. 🙂

    Sorry it’s been such a crappy week. I hope J. returns soon and the girls start getting alone better 🙂 I’m not at all in your shoes since we don’t have little ones running around but I know what having a husband gone all the time feels like. I hope the girls start helping out mommy more and you get a little break when J. does get home!!

    Maybe is the lead up to the holidays that turn little angels into mosters. Hope things are better now
