Matt just returned home after a short business trip. I have had some rough times in the past when he has been out of town but this time, finally!, I did really good. No panic attacks, relatively easy time with the girls, all was well. It's super hard keeping up with everything around here without Matt's help. I've never been under the illusion that it wasn't, but even when I'm doing great, it's hard to deal with chores AND kids. Lots of times Matt and I keep on top of chores by having one of us hang with the girls while the other does the housework. I very often want to do the chores because I'm the one home with the girls all day and Matt is often wanting time to play.
So anyways. He made it home. I didn't fall apart while he was gone, but our home definitely could use some TLC. We'll get to it. Some day!
