How did she do it!?!?!

2010 has already brought big changes and trials.  The biggest one being that Aaron now travels for work.  He has already taken 2, week long trips.  This leaves me not only alone, but stranded at home, since we only have one car and he has to take it.  I can't help be think of my Mom.  Growing up, my Dad traveled all the time, and for weeks, sometimes months at a time.  My Mom had two, three and later four children to take care of and she worked full-time.  I know that she had to depend on friends and ward members, who became a second family to us.  Now, I can in no way imagine what she had to go through.  I don't have children and I am blessed enough to live next door to my family, but I can't help but wonder how she did it.  I hate the weeks that Aaron's not here.  I don't sleep well, I can't go anywhere, and I worry about him.

I hope I don't sound like I am complaining.  We are very happy that Aaron even has a job right now.  Frito-Lay is very good to Aaron and he likes what he does.  And when he does go out of town, he gets a bigger paycheck!  Also, the house stays cleaner! :)  I just wish that I had something to do, or that someone would visit me.  You can only talk to the dogs so much before you start going crazy!

Start a running/walking group with some of your neighbors--then you can socialize and get your exercise at the same time! Double bonus :)

I wonder the same thing about my mom. I swear she's made of tougher stuff than I am.

And I wonder about the very same thing about my Mom! She had 7 children and those were the days when she hung the laundry out to dry. You just get through the trials that YOU are dealt with. I think our trials are unique to what we can handle. Cool eh!

I'm sorry you are going crazy... You know I only live 8 minutes from your house so you should call me!
