just popping in to say a quick hello and how are you!
also, i have a question for all you bloggers out there who solo parent and somehow find the energy to blog: how much do you need to spend on coffee every month to keep going? because between work and the child and the house, i’m over here like, “lord help me, i have no extra energy left with which to think of, let alone write, a blog post.” i am in awe of you all.
so yea, we’re surviving over here with no Mister Man, but we don’t like it. Amelia sleeps worse, i sleep worse. i’m tired, she gets sick of being around me all the time. (the girl is a people person, she really thrives when she’s around more than one person. if you’ve ever been lucky enough to see her out to eat, you know what i mean.) did i already mention that i’m tired? because i’m tired.
we get Mister Man back for a little while this week, and after that we get to visit him, and then there’s almost no time at all until he’s done with training. and really, i couldn’t ask for a better daughter to be with during this time. Amelia has been so much fun to be around! we play with play dough, we color, we run around the kitchen table, we take walks around the neighborhood, we watch daniel tiger and thomas the tank engine (SO MUCH thomas), and just generally are silly gals. sure, we have the occasional “disagreement” (we generally disagree only on things like bathtime and bedtime), but for the most part she is a bright light in my days.
so basically, we can hack a few more weeks of this. i’m just going to need to stock up on more coffee!
p.s. i may not be around the blog too much lately, but i’m most definitely hanging out on snapchat…so is Amelia. come hang with us if you miss us! (username: hooleywithaz)
