This was J.'s last week to be gone away in July due to his doctoral program. There is still a lot to go, but he's getting closer.
So now life can get back to normal around here. Whatever normal is. We'll probably have a little more disregulation as we make the adjustment, but I won't be handling it alone this time. Maybe I'll even find time to go by myself somewhere this weekend. All. By. Myself. And there I can spend some time preparing for the radio interview I have coming up on Monday. If you want to listen, it will be at 10 am (CDT) on the This is the Day program on Moody radio. I'll be talking about managing frustration in parenting. Something I've had more than a little experience with this past week. I wish I could say I handled it well the whole time, but boy, that would be one whopper of a lie if I did.
Ack! A new blog has come out of nowhere and has knocked me down to 6th place. Darn. Could you take a moment to vote?
And one more piece of self-promotion. I have a new article up about taking family car trips.
