Here We Go!


Thank you for your supportive words about yesterday’s post. It truly did help me get through a tough day.

But I did keep very very busy, as Andrew left for a 5-day data-collecting trip out to the East Coast. Not even Hurricane Sandy could keep him from his research! And yesterday, after a full day of childcare with no break, including parent-teacher conferences for Milo and Oliver starting at 8am (the boys are off school for a nice long four-day weekend), I felt like I could collapse from exhaustion into my bed only to realize that it was 4:30pm. Yep. I’m going to have to figure out a better way to do this.


I am once again reminded of how much Andrew does around here. It is truly a partnership. And last night, at bedtime, Milo found a picture of his papa and held it close to his heart, then asked if he could sleep with the picture. Then, of course, Oliver chose one as well, and they both nestled in and went to sleep with a picture of Papa tucked under their chins.


Happy weekend. Wish me luck! No, seriously. I’m going to need it.

  1. You can do this! And if you need it, remember most Halloween candy is on clearance. A little chocolate goes a long way in making the day a bit more bearable. (At least that’s my theory.)

  2. Oh good luck- you’ll make it through! James has been working a ton lately and I’m definately feeling it- I’m also cooking less and eating muffins and chocolate for dinner- yikes πŸ™‚

    Hope you get some good weather so everybody can tire themselves out and that the time flies.

  3. I feel for you, girl! I wish we lived closer so we could get the dudes together for a play date.

    Don’t forget to reward yourself at the end of the day with a little t.v. and chocolate (and wine). πŸ˜‰


  4. Hang in there, Lauren! I’m seconding the advice on winding down with wine.
    Remember: all of your friend are here — near and far. Call on us however you can.


  5. Times like these make me think having a sisterwife would be a pretty sweet deal.

    Sorry you’re alone for the weekend, but it’s also so wonderful that you have such a great partner. Milo and Oliver sleeping with a picture of Andrew is absolutely heart melting.

    Good luck over this weekend! I hope you find ways to pass the time, and manage to get some rest in as well.
