1. Ah!! Solidarity. I don’t sleep a wink when Simon works nights. Not one so next month will be fun. I’ll be praying for you — you that is the most generous wife!!!

  2. And I think I have my hands full with just *one* special needs child when my husband is away for four days! At least I get the mornings off while he is in school.

    I’ll keep you in prayer.

    i hear ya, sistah!! Tom was in Portland M-F last week … altho as the kids have gotten older, him being away for a week is something i look forward to! Lol … hang in there, girl!!

  4. Prayers for you! Brian went on retreat a few weeks ago for four days and upon arriving home and coming in the door, I burst into tears. I was pathetic. I have a feeling you’ll do better than me :)

  5. Prayers.

    My husband went to Poland (seriously) when I was 8.5 months pregnant last year, and I had a 13 month old at home. I planned lots of playdates so I wouldn’t get lonely and hoped that we’d both be so tired at the end of the day, that we’d go right to sleep. I even cooked a few casseroles ahead so that we’d eat real food instead of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. On the first day, my son had a fever – so off to the doctors. Double ear infection. On the second day, a friend called to say that her daughter had hand, foot and mouth disease with an incubation period of seven days and highly contagious – so no playdates all week. Oh, and one morning a lovely spider built a HUGE web in my pantry door and patiently greeted me when I woke up.

    It was rough – but he did get to Czestojova, which I really really wanted him to do, and he brought us back an icon. It was a tough week, but I’m really really glad he got to see that beautiful country – and the video chats worked very very well!!! Good luck!

    Special prayers for you; I always DREAD the rare times my Superhubby goes out of town, but find it to be really good for both of us.

    Ladies, you’re all so kind as to pray for me! Thank you! I know I’ll be fine. The kids and I have an unspoken agreement; the amount of souvenirs will directly correlate to children’s levels of cooperation and good behavior. Mwahahaha!
