Long Week is Over

I didn’t blog much last week, because Joe was out of town the entire week, so the “single parenting” kept me busy!

I have said it before, but single parents have my complete and utter admiration.  The boys were really good, and the week went well, but it is still exhausting.  I don’t think three people were ever as happy to see Joe, than when he got home on Friday evening.

On Saturday, we decided to take it easy and relax.  We slept in, and then just lounged around and played with the boys.  In the afternoon, we decided to clean the Jeep out.  The boys played in the buckets of water, and had a great old time getting soaked.  It is nice to have a clean and organized car- inside and out.

That night we picked up a pizza, and went to Joe’s parents house to watch baseball playoffs.  Ryan also “performed” his Music Man routine, but he is a bit shy around other people and danced around more than he sang, but he was still cute!

Today Joe mowed the lawns, and cleaned up the yard, while Ryan and Cole “helped” and played outside.  When they came in for lunch, their feet were covered in grass, and Cole, who had taken his Crocs off, had green feet!  He looked like a little Frankenstein.  I should have taken a picture, but didn’t think of it in time.  I had to soak his feet for several minutes and then scrub them with a nail brush to get them clean.

I went grocery shopping, and then we went out for dinner at the boys’ favorite noodle restaurant.  It was a nice, low-keyed weekend.

Tomorrow I have a conference call in the morning for work, and then my sister and my niece are coming for a visit.  My niece just turned six-months, and that is my favorite age for babies.  I just love that stage.  I have pictures of Cole and Ryan at six months, and I just can’t believe how fast the time has gone, when I look back at those pictures.  I’m glad I’ll be able to get my baby fix in with my niece. 



  1. And of course baby was sick so she was a bit grumpy with you…always happens. She’s sleeping now and we tried the breastmilk in her ear thing…I’ll keep you posted how it worked.

    Great to see you and the boys today. I can’t believe how quickly they’re getting big!

  2. I didn’t know you were single parenting last week! I could have offered some moral support if I’d known 🙂 Glad Joe is back! Enjoy your week 🙂

  3. Kris was out of town for two weeks last month and I was stressed beyond belief. I feel your pain. Single parents undoubtedly have the hardest job of all, no break, no handing off when your at your wits end…all you.
