Where have you been????

That is the question I am getting asked the most.........

Well here is the answer. I am at home.

Jay has been out of town for the last two and a half weeks. I have been by myself with the kids. I don't have any free time, or me time anymore. I get up at 5:30 get the kids ready we are out the door by 6:10, I go to work, get the kids at about 4:30 and we are home by 5:00. I get them dinner, get them their baths (which they have been taking together), get their teeth brushed, have story time and they are off to bed. Breanna has decided that she doesn't want to go to bed till about 11:30pm, so I am fighting with her from about 8 to 11:30 to get her to go to sleep.
Things have been pretty hectic. I am not use to not getting any break. I know that Jay is at work at lot even when he is at work, but when he is home on the weekend I at least get to go shopping with one kid instead of two.
I have been really worn down, with Breanna not going to sleep till 11:30 I am not getting to sleep till 12:30 because I still need to get clothes washed, dishes done, and get things ready for the next day.
We "think" Jay will get to come home early and he will come home next weekend. Although that may change and he may actually have to stay all 30 days. He is very ready to come home.
They do have a trailer house that he is living in there. He has a full kitchen, laundry room, bedroom, he has satellite TV, and a DVD player. So he has a mini house there, but it isn't the same as being home. I hope that he is home in a week. I am very tired, and very worn out. I miss him more than he knows. You take for granted being able to turn to someone when you are watching something and comment to them about it, or having someone give you a hug. I miss that.
I take Breanna and J.J. to the doctor on Tuesday for Breanna's 2 year old appt, and JJ's 9 mon old appt. I will post their stats after that. JJ is growing like a weed and becoming more mobile and vocal. Breanna talks ALL the time. Jay commented that she never shuts up just like her mom. Obviously she can't help it, she was born that way.....hahaha.
That is all for now. I am going to try to go and take a bath and go to bed. Breanna is actually asleep so I need to take advantage of that!!!! =)

I hope he gets to come home this weekend. I can't imagine how busy you must stay without the extra set of hands. Good Luck and keep staying strong! Wish I was closer, I'd come help out at night :o)
