with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
My husband doesn’t go away overnight very often but between the occasional work conference and snowmobiling or camping weekend with his friends, there are a number of days a year where the kids and I are left home alone. Now that they’re out of the baby stage it’s not the wrangling of the three of them into bed that concerns me the most - it’s the fact that he’s traveling away from us.
Something could go WRONG. He could crash the truck! Or be caught in an avalanche! Or tip his fishing boat! And as for us back home, the BOOGEY MAN might show up. We have two dogs, which simultaneously puts me at ease (One of them is HUGE) and freaks me out (WHAT ARE THEY BARKING AT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT?).
I don’t sleep well when he’s gone and am generally a bundle of nerves the entire time. It’s awesome.
(He was gone last night and by some miracle of miracles I actually had an…okay sleep. It likely had something to do with the fact that I have been running on fumes lately, but still. I don’t feel like a zombie today.)
How about you? How do you fare when you’re home alone?
