Today it hit me!
I am going to be alone with Matthew for almost 18 months while Frank is in Afghanstan. I love my son dearly but with a full time job, an active 7 year old(who is in alot of activities), house upkeep, etc...when will I find time for me? I know from experience that I must find that time or I will go crazy. I will continue to stitch and read of course but there will be other things to deal with. Maybe I should come up with a plan of action for when he is gone to start now so things go smoothly. From what I understand, keeping to a routine is important especially to children. Right now I just feel all messed up and unsure. I think I need some grounding time. But I only have a month until he leaves for WI. I also need a baby sitter so if I want to go to one of my stitching or bookclubs I can. Otherwise I have to give that all up. No wonder I have heard that wife is the hardest job in the army.
