Now I’m back, glad to get into a routine after over a month of living on the road.
I think Friday & Saturday were the hardest, before he was even gone. I cried, a lot.
There are a lot of great things about the next 3.5 months/15 weeks/2,520 hours.
I’m the one in charge now.
I can make whatever foods I want. I can create the schedule. I can do things my way.
It’s no replacement for a real, live husband, but since I am stuck with reality, I might as well revel in the positive.
I like control, now I have it~
More things to share:
♥ What a way to make your kids smile. I love this idea for fruit.

♥ Can you relate with Wendy?
She shares her ups & downs with a plant-based approach, emotional eating, & weight issues.
♥ I came across this cookbook, when we were in Seattle last week.
I want it.
The pictures & layout flaunt the beauty of vegetables.
I *want* it!
♥ Are you like me & have a brain freeze whenever someone says: baby shower gift?
I’m always humming & hawing, never knowing quite what to gift, even though I’ve kids of my own. Here are some great ideas (I especially love the chew bead necklace–brilliant!).
♥ Asher said the funniest thing the other day.
I was helping the boys clean & organize their room–put away toys, books, fold & put away clothes.
“You know boys, you’re going to have a lot more responsability now that dad will be gone. Do you know what responsability means, Hyrum?”
Hyrum rolled his eyes, mumbled a few incoherent words, & whined: ”I do, but I don’t know how to say it.”
I turned to Asher & said, “Do you know what responsability means Asher?”
No hesitation. ”Yes,” he grumbled. ”It just means you have to do more stuff without any help.”
