I just competed a few weeks of being husbandless and let me tell you, I don't know how those of you who do this on an every day basis stay sane! O.K. it honestly got much better once Daphne stopped going through her raging twos and settled down but it still was very tiring! My friend, Liz, has her husband home on R & R right now from Iraq. Since he has been in the military for the past 4ish years she has been alone with the kids more often than not and I am surprised she is sane. Hats off to you Liz!
