Mom and her three girls Day 4

A Husband Free Week –

All the motivational types talk about “kick starting the day”.  I’m pretty sure they don’t mean getting woken up by being kicked super hard in the shin.  That is how the day started.

After that rude wake up things were pretty normal. Rushed around like crazy to get Jules to Chorus.  Yes, chorus is a before school activity. I dropped Mia & Olivia off at school and returned to the house to start my work day.

Shadow continued to be extremely clingy.  I was trying to take a picture showing how he was sitting over my head today & ended up with this….


The girls all seemed to have a good day at school & we only had one soccer practice so I was hoping for a good night.  Only a couple of incidents, Julia thinking she could argue her way out of doing what I say & Olivia having a sad miss Daddy moment.  Mia was really good & even tried to help Olivia feel better.

The highlight of their day was they got the chance to talk to John.  It was a short call, on speaker phone with all four of us on the way to the field but it was so nice.  We all agreed that we really miss his humor & hugs.

Olivia had practice, Julia & Mia were a bit wound up but for the most part it was in good fun.


After showers & a soup/salad dinner they are all off to bed.  Only Mia is asleep so far, that girl crashes hard!

I’m not sure if it was the idea of a stressful morning or how loud the girl were when we got home tonight but my anxiety is super high.  I really hate that heart racing, inexplicably stressed feeling.  Hoping that it passes soon or its going to be a very long night.

Thankfully we are now half way through!  John will be home in 3 days & we can’t wait!
