It’s just me and the kids for the rest of the week

The rest of the week is going to be an interesting. Lizze is out of town on a Mother/Daughter trip. Lizze and her Mom are heading to Tennessee for a couple days and that leaves me with the kids.

She’ll be back on Saturday but I’m not sure exactly when.

She’s had a difficult month and is really struggling after her grandmother passed. This trip will hopefully be a very positive thing for both Lizze and her Mom. ☺

As for myself and the kids, it’s going to be interesting. I’m not in the best place either and the kids have been extra challenging lately, especially with the holiday’s creeping closer. That said, I’m feeling pretty good about doing this for her. If she were able, she’d do the same for me.



All I have to do is get the kids to school for the next 2 days and that’s about it, at least in theory.

We don’t have any plans for the rest of the week and will keep close to home. The only thing that’s likely to pop up is getting Elliott into the pediatrician. He’s sick again and I’m starting to worry about walking pneumonia. I’ll see how he’s doing in the morning and go from there.

On a side note, we do actually have an all night movie marathon planned for Friday night. Assuming I can get paid for a job I turned in yesterday but still haven’t heard back on, we’re going to order pizza and watch the new Venom movie. We may watch more than that but I’m not sure what else we’ll add to the list. I’ll have the boys vote on it tomorrow. ☺

Anyway, it’s not going to be easy but we’ll make the best of it and even have a little fun along the way. ☺

    It will be nice for you and the boys to have to have some guy time but I”m curious how Lizze can make such a long trip. That would be a rough trip on someone without her problems and she has a hard time even going to doctor’s appointments or family therapy at times. I guess I’m wondering how she can do this but not that.

    Unrelated, I saw you mention the other day that you are down 40 pounds and WOW- that’s fantastic. I just got back from a work trip to New Orleans and am going to need the next month to get back on track from all the delicious and super rich food I had. 🙂 The only saving grace is that I walked about 7 miles a day every day I was there. Even more unrelated, what ended up happening with your insurance claim? I feel like I must have missed something because work has been busy for me lately and I haven’t been as caught up as I normally am.

    1. I get your point but this is a trip meant to help her get away from everything for a little bit. Much of her struggle is emotional

    2. I understand what you’re saying but this is different than an appointment. This trip is meant to help her emotionally. Of course there’s going to be physical struggle but it’s a sort of a journey to healing. She lost her grandmother and her Mom lost her mother. They’re going on this trip to help with moving forward.

    3. As for the insurance claim, as soon as the weather warms up, we will be able to get everything fixed.

        Oh man that sucks. Did the insurance company not pay out? I hope you don’t still have holes in the roof line.

        1. It took a month or two but now it’s just too cold.

    Hopefully you will get to take a trip like that as well. You could use a break as well. No kid fights, no illnesses, no raccoons, or holes in the roof.

    1. A break would be nice but I don’t need a trip. I just need us, as a family, to catch a break.
