Suddenly Single: Those Darn Business Trips!

June 14th, 2009

I was raised by a single mother, so I know full well what a tough job it is to raise kids on your own. And I’m reminded of that every time my DH goes away on a business trip.

This last separation   – dragging on for 10 nights  – was  especially tough. With each separation, I try to learn a new tip, time saving strategy, or  coping mechanism to help me  manage  our household and the demands of two young boys until he returns and is able to help once again.

I’m thinking  about sharing some of my tips, and at the same time, reaching out for advice from other parents who have found themselves in the same situation.

In the meantime, I’m breathing a deep sigh of relief!

Got any tips? Please share!

    I’m going to be dealing with temporary single motherhood soon too. My husband just got a job two hours away, and it starts too soon for us to manage a move before he has to start. So he’ll be staying weeknights at my sister’s house, which is only about one hour from the new job, and coming home on weekends.

    We don’t know how long this will last; hopefully less than a month.
