Life Lessons - I can't get it all done

1) Hubby got a new job! Yay!
2) This one pays better and has steady hours - a novel concept I know!
3) Now for the boo part
4) It also requires him to work out of town
    Monday - Friday
    Every week
5) I have been solo parenting all week.
6) It's been super hard.
7) I'm stressed. Jellybean can't understand why Daddy is gone either. And the hubby hates being away from us.
8) None of us are happy.
9) There have been tears from more than just Jellybean.
10) Its a necessary evil to pay bills until he can find something closer.
11) I am EXHAUSTED though. I work full time too then come home to take care of a VERY active 9 month old and our small zoo.
12) On Wednesday - I ate my dinner at 9:30pm
13) I don't know if I can handle all this by myself.
14) It has truly made me appreciate everything the hubby was helping me out with when he was here.
15) So - I haven't blogged.
16) In weeks.
17) I have giveaways and reviews I need to get posted and not a moment to get it done in.
18) I've realized that it may be a long while before I get back to blogging regularly.
19) Anyone who misses hearing from me regularly - please let me know if you'd like to be FB friends. I can do that from my phone while nursing the JB back to sleep so it's easier on me.
20) I'll be back...one day!

From Jellybean's 9 month pictures... He has grown to 26 1/4" and 14 lbs 13.5 oz.

That last pic with his little tongue is so cute! :)

Yikes on hubs being out of town that much!

Hang in there!

Yellybean is A+ (adorable and more adorable), super cute.
It's really difficult when the Hubs is not with you during the week. I can tell you a story about this. Sigh. Hang in there. I hope he can give you a hand on the weekend, so you get some time for yourself.

He is so cute! And his stats are making me feel even more like my baby's a giant - he was 30 inches and 25 lbs. 4 oz. at his 9 month checkup!

I hope things get better for you soon. I can only imagine it would be so hard to take care of him yourself while your hubby's working out of town. Take care of yourself!

I know exactly what this is like! My hubs was working 16 hour days all week and then working Saturday mornings on top of that. I was taking care of all three of my boys around the clock by myself and I thought I was going to lose it on more than one occasion.

Thank goodness he finally was able to switch jobs in June and now he works a normal 9-5.

Hang in there! I hope he finds something more manageable really soon!

P.S. Those pictures are so freaking adorable!

He is precious! What great pictures. I'm sorry you've been having to fly solo all week. That's got to be so hard. I get all out of sorts when my husband works late a couple days a week. My meals get late too--a lot of days I forget to eat lunch or I eat it around 3pm. I hope your hubs finds something closer to home soon.
