heaven sent.

I don't know if I will ever get use to having Paul go to Idaho.

Paul usually goes on a weekend, because Savannah always goes...but business has been crazy busy, and it lead to Paul having to go during the week by himself.
Our morning started off with tears, because Savannah realized Daddy was leaving without her. She cried all the way to school. 

Sabrina was having an off day too. Just when I got her to sleep, the phone woke her up.

The only child that seemed to be cooperating was Devin, PTL. The sticker chart has been brilliant for him.

I felt like I was barely surviving, and I was ready to turn the day around.

I drove to check out Savannah a little early from school, and head to the cupcake shop. Doesn't treats cure everything?

On the way home I got a text from Cathy inviting us to come over. That friend of mine is heaven sent I tell you what. I got a good pep talk from her over the phone...while I was hiding from my kids in the closet, true story. When I got off the phone, I loaded my brood in the car headed straight to Cathy.
We love Cathy's house. Her little people, the toys, the backyard. As soon as I walked in, I felt a huge weight being lifted.

The kids played, we talked, Sabrina had a blow out.

When her husband came home, he watched my kids...and we ran away to Chubby's for dinner.  Good food, good conversation, and just what I needed to make it through the rest of my day without Paul.

Feeling so thankful for those people that help me survive.

PTL! It was fun. I love those legs but I can still see that little piece of crumb on the carpet. A Chubby's burger makes everything better.
