So, I made it through day one of Eric's 7 day business trip overseas. He has meetings in Scotland beginning on Monday and ending on Thursday. But, because of the time it takes to travel that far and flight schedules, etc., he had to leave this morning and won't return until late Friday night. I know many of you awesome mommies have had to deal with Daddy being gone many, many times, but this is new territory for me. Eric has had a few shorter trips, two or three days at a time, but never anything this long. I have been dreading this trip for the last month. So, I'm really a little bit relieved that it has finally begun so now I don't have to dread it anymore. Does this make sense to anyone?
So, if you get a chance, say a little prayer for me. I'm most nervous about surviving the evenings without Eric here. I think I've been dealing with some kind of post-partum/hormonal thing because I seem to be very stressed out and edgy lately and by about supper time every day I'm about ready to pop (or burst into tears). I'm really going to miss Daddy's help with supper dishes, the whole bedtime routine, Elizabeth's continued bad dreams, and Gustin's evening fusiness that really had ramped up over the last couple of weeks. Thankfully, tonight went well, though. So, we're off to a good start.
St. Christopher, please pray for Eric and his co-workers. They are in the air over the Altantic right now!
