a note to my husband and my mother
Rob has been working a lot.
As I have mentioned in previous posts I like my space, I married a man that was gone on purpose. I love when he leaves and when he comes home.
That being said, I don't love when he works so much, I miss him and it means I am home alone with my kids. Which is fine for a day or two but it can get long.
My kids were sick last weekend, I needed to go grocery shopping, we were out of milk, bread and eggs among other things that we use every day.
I felt stuck, I did not call a friend to come help because I did not want to subject them to our germ filled house. It made me think a lot of how glad I am that I don't have to do this on my own.
This is where I would like to talk about my mother. She was a single mom for a good part of my childhood and even when she was not a single mom, she was kind of a single mom.
She ran a business and had three kids, not to mention an array of pets. She was not perfect, she had her struggles but she did a good job and managed to hold it all together.
I would not want this life without Rob to help me take care of it, I would have to live in a condo near a park, because I could not handle it all.
I am so grateful that I am able to have this life and I know that I would not be able to do it without everything my mom has done for me and continues to do, or without Rob, he is my everyday. I don't have to do it on my own.
Thank you both,
