I know it could be a lot worse. People in the military are gone for longer periods of time and don't get to come home weekly or see their family. At least he is able to come on Wednesdays and the weekends. I am thankful for that.
But knowing it could be a lot worse still doesn't seem to make it any better. We have until May before this all ends! That seems like a life time away!
It is good that the kids keep me busy or else I think I would go nuts. And when I say busy I do mean busy! Thankfully soccer is over until next season. We still have a few more football games left and then basketball will be starting and don't forget to throw 4-H into the mix of all the sports. It never ends. I am thinking I need a taxi sign to go on the roof of my van.
The twins are also doing their fair share of keeping me busy. For the last week there have been no naps which is not a good thing. Princess E is the instigator. Prince E would go to sleep no problem but she feels the need to keep him up. So, by the time evening rolls around they are major grouches!! There is never ending stream of crying and fighting between them and it only makes me count down the hours until it is time for them to go to bed.
I just try to do the best I can and not let me emotions take over. I know in the long run this is going to be better for our family but it is the long road to have to travel to get there. I just miss my husband and will be glad when he is back home with us.
