We are just over 1/3 of the way through my husband’s South American business trip. (One week down, two more to go.) I’ll admit it, I didn’t think it would be too hard with him gone. He often works long hours on the orchard and I am used to toting around all three kids on my own. But it has been really, really, REALLY tough not having him here.
The day after he left we got hit with head lice (so gross and SO time-consuming and overwhelming to deal with), and now Karenna has a bad cold and high fever, along with the girls having generally grumpy attitudes, night terrors and wakings, and their lack of respect for me as I try to keep this house from falling apart.
To say the very least, we miss you, Steve!
