So, now that my husband is coming home tonight, I can freely tell y'all that he's been in Vegas for the past few days without fearing that someone reading this might try to break in and attack me in my sleep. Because I'm a little nutty like that.

He and our neighbor/friend, Scott caught a flight out there Wednesday morning and left Teri and myself home to be single parents for three days. I have to admit that I never realize just how much Bret helps out with the kids and things like dishes and homework, until he's not here and I'm on my way to the loony bin from trying to do it all.

Last night I had to take Ashley over to her Grandpa's house for help with her math homework because my own daughter passed me up in math two years ago. They say "use it or lose it" - and I'm here to tell you it's true.

This morning I woke up for the second morning in a row by almost falling out of our king size bed. Both mornings Ryan has climbed into bed with me at 4am. Does he sleep on his dad's side? Of course not. He sleeps on my side and wedges in next to me to keep warm. We end up using a quarter of the bed with the whole rest of it wide open. If it hadn't been 4am, I might have been coherent enough to realize that I could just climb over him and sleep on the other side of the bed, but at 4am I'm not running on all cylinders.

I now have the rest of the afternoon to myself since Chloe's mom got out of work early today, so I'm off to do some decluttering of my own.

Glad you made it through the past few days :)

I was amazed when Tom first left how often he had been doing the cat boxes and the kitchen, and I'll be glad when he's doing them (or sharing them) again ;)

And what was the reason you were left home with the kids while he went with a buddy to Vegas??
When do you get to go with your Quit buddies?

Remember to tell hubby that you realized again how much he helps you out, they love that being needed stuff :):)
I think you're going to have a wonderful weekend!!

Guess that means you don't need me to call and wake you up tomorrow, huh?

No wake up calls tomorrow morning, thank you. I'll be sleeping IN.

Mamaflo - Hubby never does anything for himself. It's all about the kids and me. He deserved this trip. Don't worry though, me and the other guy's wife are watching airfare prices VERY closely. Don't know if anything will come of it, but it sure would be nice.
