I knew this was going to happen; yesterday I had sixty different idea for blog posts, which I didn’t write down because I was in the midst of driving myself home from work.
And today? Poof. Gone.
Charlie and I are going to a wedding today; his best man at our wedding is getting married. Lucky is staying with our next door neighbor’s 18-year old daughter, who is planning on taking Lucky to the high school football game. She has lots of plans for him.
Though Charlie and I looking forward to having a date afternoon/evening, it’s yet another day that Lucky and his daddy don’t get to spend together before Charlie needs to get back on a plane tomorrow. And Charlie has to stay in OH another day next week, as his client told him that he NEEDS to be at a meeting on Friday.
*sigh* I’m kinda done with this traveling thing.
It’s not the routine, or the WORK of single parenting that’s hard. We get into a routine, and in a lot of ways, it’s simpler: dinner is quicker, and I can prep ahead of time.
It’s more the emotional drain of not having my partner here. trying to navigate the days on our own. Hard to explain, really.
Single parenting is hard.
Off to spend time with my husband, who is here right now, though.
