Most of you know that I am a single parent for half of the year. Dan works on tugs and barges and is gone for 40 days at a time. He has had this schedule for about 7 years, so I am used to this, but it still doesn't make it easy. I do so many things on my own with the kids, and it's hard to manage sometimes. I am blessed to have a very supportive family that helps out, but I miss my hubby. He is a great Dad who plays with the kids, and gets down on their level. He is also wonderful with taking extra kids so that a friend and I can have girl time, kid free. Our house is a fixer upper, and Dan had done all the work himself. From building the fence to remodeling our bathroom (even when he didn't like my idea of painting it red!). This summer he finished turning my part of the carport into a garage. He always has a big honey do list when he gets home, and may complain, but likes to work on things around the house.
Dan will be home tomorrow, and I am excited to see him. The kids have been counting down the days until Daddy comes home. This past 40 days have been some of the most difficult, so I'll be glad to have the support at home. Maybe he could take the kids to the park so that I could have quiet time for homework? (hint, hint) Love and miss you honey, can't wait to have you home!!!!
