JB is out of town for several days and while last time I cut him some slack because he was on a business trip that included the once-in-a-lifetime experience of hiking the Great Wall of China, this time he’s . . . well, he’s in Wyoming. Hunting antelope.

Can you even EAT antelope? I don’t think so. I don’t want to try, anyway, unless there’s such a thing as an antelope tiramisu.

Anyway, I’ve been dreading this little testosterone-fest because holy crap, a whole week on my own with the children. I love my boys but uhhhhh, parenting solo with a baby and toddler pretty much shits the bed. And not like a dry, easily-rolled-off-the-sheets turd, either, more like a horrific splattermess a la Trainspotting.

Well, we are making the best of it, as evidenced by recent camera contents:

Heh. I was trying to take a mirrored photo of the two of us, but Grabby McLungerton was all about that camera strap. How apropos that I was wearing my SOMETIMES I WORRY ABOUT ZOMBIES t-shirt.

Riley’s room is messy. I KNOW.

My god, when did he get so big?

(Tonight he told me, “I help you make cookies. That make you happy, Mommy? I like to make you happy.”)

Tell me, what have you been up to lately? Really, I want to know. I’M LONELY OVER HERE.

Just think about what i went through when you have your occassional weeks alone… my husband and I split when my three 3 boys were ages 1,3 and 5 – now that was tough! Especially when you consider that I had them on avg about 80% of the time.
Hang in there – it gets easier!

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should write more on this subject, it may not be a taboo matter but usually people do not talk about such subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!

Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to generate a really good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don’t seem to get anything done.

The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not fail me as much as this one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you would have something helpful to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something that you can fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
