Happy Little Rain Showers

Today we had rain.  Not dark stormy rain cloud rain, but happy little rain showers.  You know the ones - rain floats down and it feels like you've walked under a mister at the amusement park.  It was wonderful. Not only was the weather fun and sprinkley but it was also day 4 of my singlmomdom (Jon's away on business.) which means I finally got over the single mommy hump.

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!

    I know exactly the rain you're talking about and love it too.  The only thing I could do without is the frizzy hair that undoubtably comes with it.  You're almost halfway through singlemomdom!

  2. Glad you're getting into your groove! It's always tough on your own. Glad you're getting some happy rain!! Can't wait to see you in a few weeks!!

  3. Almost 10 more days to go.  I actually can't believe how quickly it's gone.
