The good news is that we never lost power.
The bad news is that despite the storm not really hitting us, schools closed and I had kids here all day. It was far less snow than other days when the kids have had school. Schools closed from media hype, not actual snow.
The other bad news is that there were places in the North East that it did hit hard, so Adam's catastrophe unit at work was activated. He technically can so no to the long hours, but we really need the money right now so we are in no position to turn down overtime.
I have always had mixed feelings about him being activated. The money helps, but I miss him.
This is the first long activation he has had since Jayden was born. As much as I didn't like it before, I hate it now. He is basically only sleeping here while this is going on.
I had kids here all day yesterday, which meant Jayden fought naps all day so he wouldn't miss a single thing the kids did. By the time all the kids were gone, Jayden was a crying, whining mess. (Why is it the more overtired the baby is, the harder they fight sleep?)
Our weekend plans are cancelled because he will most likely be working straight through the weekend too.
All I can say is, I give single parents all the credit in the world. That is something I have thought about since the day Jayden came home from the hospital. I don't know how they do it. Adam and I make a good parenting team. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have someone to share the parenting with. It has to be so hard.
