Kinda random post about absolutely nothing

I made dinner tonight.
Not only tonight..  but last night AND the night before that.
Talk about a streak. That makes 3 days in a row.
Totally wimpy dinner making skills over here.
But I am rather proud of myself.
It was hard to get back in the groove of things after the move.
Especially when the husband works evenings.. it's hard to find the motivation.
But I found it ! It's here. And hopefully here to stay.

Dinner making isn't it though.
I'm getting used to Tuck working evenings. Sad to admit this actually.
What a crappy thing to get used to! (again) But it's okay.
The routine with just me and the kids every night is getting regular. And I'm no longer at a loss what to do until bedtime haha.
Although there are still those horrible bedtimes when they aren't listening as it gets later. Oiy! But once I pull them aside and remind them it's hard for Mommy to do this without daddy and they need to listen and obey.. their behavior improves.
 Haha like how I pull the card for them to feel bad for me? Yeah, it's a good one. ;)

Tucker also works evenings every weekend. he gets every third weekend off.. or something like that. So it'll be REALLY be fun to see how crazy we go :)

Here's to living in the present and loving it.. but still oh so lovingly looking forward to the future... a future that includes a husband home for dinnertime and bedtime and every weekend.

Brad works nights as a nurse and it is sometimes hard for me with just Kellen. I can imagine it gets tough with two and one on the way. But what a super mom you must be! Plus I'm sure Tucker really appreciates the support you give him!

I need to have you over soon for dinner! Or we could meet you at the park or somewhere one evening next week. It seems like forever since I have seen your kids! Love you guys!

oh yeah, i know how you feel. it can be a long evening without the man of the house at home. i'm doing great if i'm not just about passed out on the couch after od-ing on chocolate and bad tv! ha, no, i've gotten used to it and try to be a little more constructive after the kids have gone to bed and i'm all alone. it's nice to know there are other mommies out there experiencing the same emotions as me!!!

I am so excited for you! new place, new mad dinner making skills. Downtown Boise can be way fun...the greenbelt and all the parks are so fun.
Hang in with nights, Shay's working graveyards right now...it's lame, but we go with the flow.
