Do I Have To Admit It?

Okay, I'll admit it. I'm not doing so well with half my family gone. I should be rejoicing, jumping for joy, runnin' around the house naked. (Both of us...me-n-Hootie, I mean)


But I'm not! Chief is in Texas for the week at a training class for work. He's in the 2nd part of a course both he and I took together through our jobs. He is in public works for the city and I am with Emergency Management. All divisions require FEMA courses. He was so excited about the first course, that he signed up for the second which is a week long course where they run a full scale exercise in what the call "Disaster City." Sounds pretty cool, but someone had to stay home with the kids! Soooo where are they???

(mmm, MAMA misses DADDY)

Miss Talks-A-Lot: well, you know where she is....a zillion miles away from me in the middle east. She's uploaded pictures on Snapfish, but won't let me put any of them online b/c she wants to "edit" them first....She's so 11....

(OOPS, sorry pulled a picture from your file....couldn't help it....)



Runs With Scissors had to go spend the night with his cousin (which he loves) because all of my sources are indisposed while I work....(Grandaddy is in the hospital, Brown Daddy is in the middle east with sissy, and Redneck Daddy is in Texas, hence, no sources.)


(Grandaddy...please pray for him!!) (Brown Daddy....Don't ask)

Back to not doing well....


I thought it would be wonderful. A sweet quiet. A peaceful nothing. BUT, not so much...
I just can't seem to get it together. I woke up late this morning which is soooo high school. Being LATE is a huge pet peeve of mine. It's very irresponsible and disrespectful in my opinion. But, I guess that's me right now....

I wasn't late for work, but I didn't have time to get Hootie up, dressed, and to the (absolute best best best) sitter in the world, so I had to leave him with my brother who THANKYAJESUS, came over to watch him last night while I worked until midnight.


Needless to say, I miss my family. I miss sleeping in the bed with my sweet man, I miss kissing my rude mouthed daughter before bed, I miss arguing with my, best negotiator in the world, son about what his bedtime is. I'm left with the shortest person in the house that can't walk yet, but thinks he can crawl fast enough to get away from me while giggling....I'm left with the loudest person in the house that doesn't want to cuddle, but wants to screech at the top of his lungs when he wants to communicate. I'm left with this little person who does nothing all day but call DA-DA----DA-DA----DA-DADDY because as little as he is, keeps wondering why he hasn't seen his favorite person in the world. It's been wayyyy to long for him and it's causing meltdowns.....

(Look at that face....he's a PLOTTIN' fool)




So yeah, lookin' forward to this weekend.......
