Alone again and not binging.
Friday, April 16, 2010
My husband is in Vegas, as I think I reported before. This leaves me at home with both kids, which terrifies me and which would normally cause a massive binge to calm me down.
But I thought through it instead--wondering why it terrifies me. Decided that when I'm with them, I feel powerless (I can't force them to listen) and as Dr. Gould writes, we binge when we feel powerless.
Maybe that realization helped me to not binge but so far, I'm managing okay. Still have a few stories due before Wednesday that I'll work on this weekend but I'm doing okay, even though I have to get the place clean for tomorrow (when the cleaning woman comes--I just put everything away, she does the dusting and vacuuming) and one kid was home sick with a sinus infection, so I had to deal with the pediatrician and the pharmacy.
Only two days till he gets back.
