When the husband is away

No, no, no...the wife doesn't play. Not this wife! But what happens around here when the husband is away is, the wife gets sick, the kids get sick, someone sideswipes the car, the car breaks down, the keys fall off the keyring in the car and the family is locked out of the car...

Yes, this is just an example of some of the things that have happened when BigDaddy is gone with his job. He usually travels one week and is home the next.  This time of year he is gone all of one week, part of the next on and off... schools are getting ready to shut down for the summer and they are in need of network administration/computer repair/whatever other computer needs arise (you know like the school being broken into and the entire IT dept being trashed).

We miss him to pieces, take care of whatever mishaps arise while he is gone and usually all this mama has to do is throw a roast in the slow cooker first thing in the week and we have enough leftovers to make meals from for the rest of the week.

Heading off now to make some chicken noodle soup for little Miss Jellybean; the school called me at 9:30 this morning... BigDaddy had been on the road for an hour and a half. Ha ha ha.

Perhaps I need to pray pre-emptively when we know he is leaving against every silly little thing that tries to bring us down.  {grin}

  1. Same thing happened to us when Dean worked away last winter - furnace stopped working, kids sick in the tummy at the same time, laptop stopped working... It's hard, stay strong and brave and save the meltdown until he gets home to hold you!
