And, he's off again...

Yes, remember just yesterday when I mentioned that my husband was coming home..well, he did. Jody got home yesterday around lunch, but, yes, its true, he is off again. Jody left this afternoon to head to Childress for his cousin's bachelor weekend. I know he needed to go to support his cousin, and visit with his other cousins, but seriously, did it have to be all at once. No big deal, he will be home again tomorrow around lunch, but then he's leading worship again tomorrow night. Don't get me wrong, I'm so glad he has all this worship stuff, but, I just want to spend a little quality time with my husband, and the girls miss their daddy. In fact, this is what Mia asked me yesterday before Jody got home, she said "mommy, daddy doesn't live at our house anymore???" WOW! I couldn't believe that she had thought that. Now, she did giggle after she said that, so I am assuming she knew she was just kidding, but it did give me a slight glimpse at what divorced couples with small children go through.

Anyways, I just thought I'd fill everyone in on just a couple of things I have learned while Jody's been away...

1.) Around thursday of this week, I noticed that I was finding myself a little "bored" at times. (now, I use that word loosely because, as a mom, there is always something to be done.) Now, why?, you ask. Well, I quickly realized that I was not spending all of my spare time picking up tons of stuff and putting things away, before I could ever do any real cleaning. I was also not feeling overwhelmed with things thrown over every available space. This is when I realized that I was not crazy when I always thought that Jody does not pick up after himself. Mia and I are actually very mess-free people. But don't you worry, the moment Jody got home, the house was once again a mess. Now, I am not bad-mouthing my husband. I am saying this all very respectfully, especially since I have already informed him of my new finding. Man, we need a housekeeper, or really, someone to go behind my husband to pick up after him. Oh, wait, we do have one, its ME! I love you Jody!!!

2.) I love that my three year old is very affluent in her language. She always has been. She started talking from a very early age, and always seemed to be very precise, and clear in her words. But, as the week came to a close, I seemed to grow very weary of her constant talking, questions, and the main question "where are we going to go???who's coming over???" (she is truly her daddy's daughter, with the need to constantly be doing something social.) Even tonight on our way to church, I tried to play the quiet game, but it failed to work, of course. Does that make me a bad mom???

3.) I had forgotten how rough teething can be on a little baby. Poor Eisley, my usual very content and happy baby has been a little more fussy than usual. Come on teeth, please make your appearance so that we can get this over with!

4.) I think I am in need of a little alone time. Maybe when Jody gets home tomorrow I can get away. Maybe I will go to Starbucks, or just go for a walk around the mall. Something, maybe????

Well, goodnight to each of you! I am so tired and in desperate need for sleep. I hope I did not sound like debbie-downer. Just a little venting. So, if you read this whole entry, I thank you for hanging in there. If not, I don't blame you.

We are in such similar boats sister. I could have written the same thing! The other day, after a LONG night of River not sleeping well because of his teething, I started imagining myself sitting at Barnes and Noble, sipping on tea and reading....I got tears in my eyes! Moms need a break sometimes!! I have also tried to play the quiet game with Jonah but it doesn't ever work..He always ends up asking "Mommy what you say?" "What's the quiet game?" " I wanna play a game mommy." AAGGHH!!! :)

Oh, Ash, I was hoping you wouldn't notice that it was about Brad...my bad, I'll ask permission next time. I know, lets get a huge house together, and have the guys have one side (that we never have to see) and we can have the other half, perfect!

I am not sure why your tag is not centered...try selecting a differnt layout. Sorry! I usually just have to play with it for awhile!

I know you didn't ask me, but try the shrinking to fit option. Mandy just made me a new tag and I had to mess with mine for a while!

Ronnie and I are coming to town. Friday-Sun! Let's meet up....Cherry+Wilson=FUN

Hey Debbie, Oh I mean Sarah. JK! It's hard having busy husbands sometimes. And not so tidy ones as well. But I think you are a great wife and mother from what I see, and I know Jody and your sweet girls feel the same. Sometimes things are rough, and on occassional vent is allowed.
Love you!
