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,


  1. yea! I second your comments about your mom! She mothered so many of your friends too. Jill you are the best.
