...with my three jobs: Mom, (temporary) Dad, and fulltime professional.

First of all, 2 months down, and 4 more to go until my husband comes home. Exciting news: we're planning to spend a few days in London together on his return trip, so I am starting to look at hotel options, and other possibilities for one very packed week. Not sure why, but this has me feeling happier.

My boss agreed to let me telework one day a week, so I'll be starting this Tuesday. Things have calmed down a little bit.

My checkup was better than I expected. I gained a few pounds, but my blood pressure and my lab results were right on target. Now if I could just get to the gym again.

My son is not doing well in school. I think it has to do with missing his Dad. I've been talking to his doctor and his school counselor, and I hope we can get this sorted out.

My daughter is worried about getting into a top college. At 16, I suppose that's normal. I keep trying to tell her that she'll get in somewhere, and it'll be fine. I'm taking a 2-night course at the local community college to help me figure out the puzzle of college financing.

I took my daughter out driving again today, and she did amazingly well for someone who hasn't been behind the wheel since July. It provided a much-needed confidence booster.

It's almost 11:30 pm. The cat is curled up here beside me on the couch. The dog is snoozing somewhere on the floor. The house is peaceful and quiet. Looks like my husband just logged on from his distant military base. It's early morning where he is, and the start of another day. I think I'll go to bed now. Good night to all, and thank God for for good things...

    Good to hear about you, my friend! It will do you a lot of good to see hubby, I think. (Gee, what a no-brainer!) Great news about working at home one day and your daughter's driving! It has taken my daughter 3 years to get up the courage to even try driving again. I've been rushed and busy lately, too, and not very good at checking in with SparkFriends, I'm afraid. But here I am! emoticon

    My goodness, you are holding up so well with so much on your plate! Looking forward to London will be great! Hopefully when you hit the three month mark, it will seem like your hubby will be home in no time. You are one tough cookie - stay strong!!! And make sure you plan to see a play while you're in london! Hang in there!!!
