Mom and brother are getting ready to board the airplane to fly back home, my home, our home, of Hawaii.. while this feeling in my throat of wanting to run towards them, hang on to their feet, and hold their luggages as hostages just so they could stay.. just for a few more weeks.. okay permanently would be great.
It was just so nice having that... break of not having everything weigh on my shoulders. To have that extra help around the house and with the kids. The last time my mom came out to help me, I was 19, we just had the one child and I was a stay at home mom. Now, nearly 12 years later, 3 kids, 2 jobs, a husband on shift.. and nearly everything is dependent on me, well an entirely different chapter in my life. I enjoyed.. no I savored every minute I had with them! And now they are on their way... what can I say, it will take me a few days to adjust.
(Intermission) I LOVE THIS PANDORA RADIO! (Thanks to Tina, another amazing artist by the way...) for letting me know. I sit here on my computer everyday, working on something.. and it is a lifesaver. I mean, I love iTunes.. but if your playlists are just getting a little on the boring side.. check this website out!
Alright, back to my sulking attitude.. I know I will be alright, after all I did this for a good 12 years without my mama, right? Last night, my oldest.. is still under the weather.. he's had a fever for 4 days now, followed by flu like symptoms. Let me back track about this guy a bit.. he is not a quiet sick guy also.. he's the guy that will let you know about every ache in his body, to his chills, and cold sweats.. he's got a different moan for it too! He is coughing like there is no tomorrow, and its not a subtle cough.. it's a "look at me.. I'm coughing and I hurt.. oh is this it.. " kind of cough! So these past few nights he has let me hold him on my lap. He's slept in my bed (hubby is on mid schedule) and he's been wanting "mommy" like never before! Which I admit is really sweet, cause when was the last time, he looked into my eyes and said "mommy I wanna sit with you..." But, it makes it for long nights and days. Last night he finally settled down and fell asleep at 6 am! By that time I had to get up and take the other to school. So when hubby gets home at 8 am, he asks how my night went, I say "oh well, in the last 2 days I've had about 4 hours of sleep!" then he hugs me and tells me I'll be okay.. then snores away! Uhm, yeah?
Alright, I'm done whining...
A post would not be complete without a photo? How about this one.. brrr..
