the everything wife.

my husband hasn't been home since 9am this morning. it's 11.30pm now. he got sucked into another call area and they kept throwing calls at them. everything from a roll over MVA to transporting some patients around, he's still on the clock as i write this.
when i looked at the time just now, i realized how long he'd been gone for and everything i'd done today, by myself and i have to say, i am impressed. here i was thinking how i wasn't good enough, or hadn't done enough but this is what my day today looked like.

6.30 am - get up, get kid ready for school
7.20 am - go and wait for the bus to pick up said kid
7.40 am - feed all the animals morning hay
8 am - come inside, make breakfast for me and the 3 yr old
8.30 am - put on a cartoon for said 3 yr old and start sweeping and mopping the floors
9 am - say bye to hubby as he gets called out
10 am - check my email, start laundry
11am - start editing my novel...
11.30 am - start lunch, play with toddler
12pm - lunch and then do the dishes
1pm - tidy up house
1.30pm - start some laundry
2.20pm - get outside clothes on, get outside and go wait for the bus
2.40pm - start evening feeding and chores.
3.30pm - come inside, make tea for survival and start dinner
4.30pm - get call from hubby that he's not going to be home till well after 6pm, decide to eat dinner early
5.30pm - put on PAW PATROL (they are obsessed) for the kids and try to edit more of my novel
7pm - BATHS... fight with toddler...
7.30pm - bed time for said tired-toddler
8pm - watch Cinderella with my 5 yr old daughter.
9pm - talk to hubby, still not off, talk to my mom
9.30pm - Cinderella ends, bed time for 5 yr old.
10pm - sit and bask in SILENCE
10.30pm - answer more emails, edit more of the novel...
11.30pm - realize i didn't do enough today, realize what i actually did today, realize it was enough. keep editing the novel.

i know now how capable i am of functioning alone with 2 kids and a farm full of animals.
my husband is out there helping others and i'm here raising kids that i hope strive to help others too, that have good values and cherish their lives.
twenty years from now, i know i won't regret a moment of this, even though today i wanted to pull out my hair twice ;)
