The week without Ian is going just fine. Actually, it was going really well until today. Today, Luca had an upset tummy. I am guessing it was a mild tummy bug. But honestly it was so mild that I am wondering if it even was a tummy bug, or maybe just an upset stomach from something. Lots of laundry later, and a bath for her and shower for me, I think we both are doing better. I feel absolutely fine but was just grossed out and freaked out about the germs.
But it meant that no family was coming over today in case it was a stomach bug. I don't want anyone else exposed. By 7pm tonight, I was ready for this day to come to a close. Luca was not. She stayed up and played, and played, and fought me on going down.
I am learning a lot this week. That I am much more capable of handling things on my own than I ever expected. I thought I would be pulling my hair out. But honestly, things have been much better than I thought they would be (even with the stomach bug). But, I much prefer doing things as a team with Ian, even though I am capable of this. Blah, blah, blah. Enough with the deeper stuff. Let's get down to the nitty gritty. I hate, hate, hate refilling the humidifier. Never realized that because Ian is the humidifier refiller on a nightly basis. I hate dealing with putting the trash and recycling out. I miss Ian being home so I can take a shower that is longer than 2 minutes without a screaming child in the bathroom with me. I miss being able to walk Tessa without carrying Luca. I am so grateful he is only away for 6 days!
Sorry this post is so jumbled. It is 10:30pm and this mama is heading to bed. Night!
