No more MIA!


So I know I have been totally MIA for a month. I'm terribly sorry, life just seems to hit you all at once. On top of extra school work, because of the Christmas season coming up I've had to take on more hours at work. Plus my husband went out of town, first for a doctors appointment, now he's been gone for almost two weeks doing some work on a house, leaving me to run everything myself.

It sure has been stressful. I never realized how much just having that other person there to rely on makes such a huge difference. Because I've definitely bitten off more than I chew without him-or some kind of support network-here. I'm running two businesses (at the busiest time of year for mine), working outside the home, driving to and from the babysitters twice a day, keeping the house clean, walking the dog, and trying to keep my child and myself relatively happy.



Being a single parent is a tough job, and those of you who do it out of necessity are my heroes, and you deserve way more credit than I can give. I think a lot of my griping about being a single parent the past few weeks, has been because I don't have that many good friends here, I have a couple acquaintances and some people I'm getting to know better as time goes on, but I also have no family. My nearest family (my in-laws) live in New Brunswick, and all of my family is from Saskatchewan! All my closest friends are all scattered throughout western Canada.
