Tuesday, November 18, 2008


Another week, another business trip. I knew it was coming, but I still feel unprepared.

I rescheduled Marc's bday party because of the last one, and now this trip is wreaking havoc on the planning. Mostly the house prep. I have a hard enough time keeping up with the baby when Hubby is gone. And to pile everything else on top of that? No wonder I have such a hard time keeping my head above water.

The Players

Hubby - definition not required.

Marc - Eldest child from previous marriage. Recently turned 12.

Ty - The most recent addition to the family. About to turn 5 mos. old.

CuChi - Our ShihTzu. Now former baby of the family.

Sami - Our Lab Mix. Very CoDependent. Afraid of all men. The Husband has become an exception to the rule.

Chynna - Our Chinese Crested (hairless, sort of). Apparently the world exists without her permission.

Butthead - Exhusband. Defies definition. You'll just have to read it to beleive it.

Me - Grew up in a less than stellar childhood, thought to escape that environment through marriage. 'From the frying pan to the fire' is an all too apt description of that choice. After Marc was born, gradually began to stand up for myself and realized that raising my son in such an environment was NOT doing him any favors. As such, I struck out on my own ten years ago, focused on raising my son, and healing myself. I've come a long way baby.

daddy's away

And mommy doesn't get to play. Work falls by the wayside as well. Nothing gets done. All baby, all the time. No backup.

Bonus: Mommy gets to fall back on the ever useful 'nap when baby naps'.

Business trips are no friend of mine.
