Single Parents – I Salute You!
My husband has been out of town for a week now.
I am used to having him around. We are that family that does just about everything together, and always have the kids with us. I know how blessed I am, and truly appreciate it every day. With two of us, it's pretty easy. This past week has not been so easy.
I have been working, the kids have school and activities, school projects, homework, and a couple of them have been sick, and I've been trying to keep everything on track.
I am exhausted...and it's only been a week.
There's no break. There's no downtime. There's a lot of juggling, though...trying to do my best at work and at home.
This is why I salute single parents. I sometimes complain that Mike doesn't do as much around the house as I would like. I'm realizing that just having that second person there can make all the difference in the world. If I get tired or frustrated, he can take over.
When you're by yourself, you have to suck it up and TCB (take care of business!) .
AND IT'S ONLY BEEN A WEEK!
So, to all you single parents, I salute you, and next time I complain about my schedule, I will tell myself to shut up.
