No Blue Meanies have frozen our family, but my wife boarded a plane on Wednesday for places Midwestern. She will return Friday after the kids are asleep, so I am soloing three nights of routines. The first night went well; however there was no furniture building as there has been for the last few nights. I am making a dent in the pile of Ikea furniture I brought home, and our office is slowly transforming.
It is always hard to refrain from dumping the kids back on a returning partner even though I know the time away was not a vacation.
