Suddenly, he is out of the picture for making dinner, garbage, groceries, laundry (not that he ever did much of that!), coffee in the AM (he makes it better than I do), make Elizabeth's lunchbag up and giving E. a lift to school. I am sure there is much, much more, but I am too knackered to think. I set him up on the sofa each day with his laptop, pills (those really send him flying...he just asked me if we're in 0-9....2009! Ya - you're only 9 months late, but enjoy the percacet, honey! Even funnier is seeing him use the laptop!), water, cell phone, home phone and book, kiss him good-bye and head off to my part-time job-that is full time for two months (don't even start me on how busy it is there. Lunch is a distant memory.)
I spend my evenings cooking, cleaning kitchen, keeping up with the mountainous loads of laundry (that don't seem to disappear), work on baby book (so excited I heard from the artist I want in the book today!!!!) and flop into bed. My only Hot Yoga class that I frequented before the summer, nearly killed me last Monday - it was only 2 months I missed! I 'm exhausted! I know...Waa-waa-waa!
Tomorrow no laptop...a basket of laundry instead!
I take my hat off to my sister (one of them), who raised 3 kids, most of the time without the dad around. I really miss my helper, partner in crime and I am only on Day 2 of 6 weeks!!!!!! YIKES!
Can't wait for the weekend to pick up my knitting and zone out!
