This past week was a little stressful. Hubby had to go out of state, actually clear across the country, for his job. He left early Tuesday morning and returned on Friday evening. This has been his second trip there in a month. The first was during the first week of school for the kids.
So, I was on duty 24/7 for the kids with no backup. There were times I felt a little overwhelmed between homework, band practice, getting them up and getting them in bed on time and that's not counting all the mini-crises and drama that arises with pre-teens and teens. And I thought girls would be the drama queens.
I have nothing but praise for those who do this on a daily basis. You Are Super Parents!
During this time, I had a few stress eating bouts but it wasn't enough to do any real damage, thank goodness. I think I was just missing hubby and a little down time from everything, so I sought comfort in all the wrong places. Mainly my kitchen cupboards.
Now that he is back home, I have given up my little feeding frenzy.
I plead temporary insanity.
