In a house with three kids and a busy husband, it’s hard to find peace.  Just finding time to watch a movie without falling asleep is a challenge.  I work a full-time job and my husband is self-employed full-time as well as he just started to work part time for a company which will at some point turn into a full-time job (and hopefully decrease the self-employment), makes it hard enough.  But when his self-employment takes him six hours away for a week or two at time, all I can say is “ugh.”  I don’t know if it’s easier now that the kids are out of school or if it were easier when they were in school.

Last week is a prime example of how life generally is, my husband was at a job six hours away and it was the first week of summer vacation.  My kids, a son 13, and two daughters 11 and 9, are absolutely wonderful.  As sluggish as the kids can be (summer break you know), if I were to ask them to help, they are there for me.  The youngest will drag her feet at times, but will still get done what is asked of her.  Although the mornings are easier now (I don’t have to get the kids off to the buses for school), I do have to run home at lunch and make sure everything is ok, make any sandwiches, give any orders, and make up the computer time schedule, then head back to work.

    Thank you Lizann! I don't know what I would do if we didn't have the chaos. Oh, and the belly dancing is wonderful!
