I am home looking like this. Woke up Sunday with a sore throat and it turned into everything else and knocked me on my butt. Literally. Stayed in bed and on the couch all day for the last 3 days. I get up to get the kids to school and home and back on the couch. Tried to throw a load of laundry in, I got dizzy. Dr. said its a virus that's going around, feels like Strep throat and the flu, combined, lasts 5-7 days. Uggggh. This would all be ok if my Hubby wasn't here.....
Early Sunday I had to drop him off at the airport. He was Houston bound. A quick trip, he would be home Wed night. That's not bad at all compared to what we were used to. EXCEPT I have been on the couch the whole time he has been gone. My poor kids. I bet they are READY for Daddy to be home.
I have dishes in the sink.
Beds to be made.
Toilets to scrub.
Floors to sweep and mop.
Furniture to put back.
It all makes my head spin.
So it can wait. I will be better tomorrow. Cross your fingers. I am.

I secretly took these pictures. BECAUSE if I try to get his attention all i get are silly faces!
These pictures stopped me in my tracks. Who is this little man with the deep voice and big feet?
Its amazing really, how fast they grow up. Its also pretty amazing when you start to see all your hard work pay off. The humbleness, the generosity, the kindness, the humor, the sense of style, the responsibility, the dedication, the affection, the character. As parents we see those things and its then that we can truly pat ourselves on the back.
Then all in a moment, it turns, they get grumpy and tired and hungry and selfish and wear dirty clothes and leave their beds unmade and take 30 minute showers and fight with their sisters and we SAY TO OURSELVES, THAT is NOT my kid, WHERE are his PARENTS!! LOL
One of my projects for the week.

I wasn't going to post anything about this. I touched on it gently in one of my last posts. I haven't talked much about it and I haven't wrote much about it or put it out there. Every time I went to open my mouth to say something, I would quietly close it. I didn't feel like anything I could say would do my feelings or him justice.
