What I've found in the few times that I've had to take care of EVERYTHING all on my own is that it takes about three days to get in the groove. Picking up your spouses responsibilities, deciding what daily tasks are really important, which ones can be done less frequently, what things can wait until your singlemomdom comes to an end, and which ones you definitely need to tackle because you don't have anyone telling you not to do it. :o) Being a single parent is so tough and my hat's off to all of you who call this your norm. I'm glad my reign in singlemomdom is usually short and infrequent.
As I type this my little one is starting to squawk so I better be off. Good night!
