single mom time.

  This new job (Daddy's...) is wearing me down. I am trying to be supportive but I am sort of totally hating things so far. If he sticks with it, he'll get into the union and that will be a great thing for us but that could be a few years off and right now he has to go down and wait twice a day trying to get work and when he does get work it could be in the middle of the night or early morning so that when he gets home he has to go downstairs and sleep and basically he's never home anymore (or if he is he's sleeping). I am used to being able to slip away for an hour and go to the store alone or just catch my breath. I am so reminded of the days before I met him when it was just me my oldest child. Just the two of us for years and years (7 years) and now I have a two year old so most of the time it's the three of us and they both miss Daddy and I do too but honestly more I miss there being someone else being a parent. How was I a single mom for 7 years. It is hard. so hard and tiring. I love the kids more than anything but... I need to go see a movie or go to the fabric store alone. Maybe tomorrow...

these poppies are nuts. They are nearly 6 feet tall! How is that possible!

  None of her hats will do, she always steals mine. The last few days have been in the 90's, kind of fun but unusual for us and I wilt in the high heat. Hoping today will be milder. But lovely and sunny as well!
