one man shy

It's 10:27 on Sunday night and I was hoping my man would surprise me by walking in the door from his four days (so far) out in the woods on a big muzzleloader hunt.

I don't think it will happen tonight.

Last year was a big year. Remember this? It's hard to beat a year like he had last year.

I'm hoping that all his hard work will pay off tomorrow and he will come home to me.

I'm lonely!

Don't get me wrong, the boys and I have stayed VERY busy since he left on Wednesday, but we're missing our leader of the testosterone army.

The water heater stopped making hot water and we settled for cold for over 24 hours until super-wife I took action and got it fixed (for a really good price).

We've had four soccer games, two play dates and I even had my monthly girls night. We went to church this morning and my next door neighbors even took my two older boys to the circus this evening.

We've had a full schedule.

But I'm lonely and I miss my man! Come home my great white hunter!


  1. Oh Friend! You are doing an awesome job "holding down the fort". Hang in there. He will be home before you know it. Enjoy this day He has given you. Enjoy your boys. You are a great example of a (commanders) wife.
    love ya!

  2. it takes a great mom to "hold down the fort" and keep things going. you have to be patient and loving even when you don't want to be. hope kenyon comes home soon! get some sleep tonight - and my boys are hoping for something big! : )

  3. Yes, the Girls' Night must occur at any cost!

  4. I found your blog through Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry. I'm a mom of FOUR boys too! So finding your blog was wonderful! Someone else! :) Your sons are beautiful... my guys are 4, 3, 17 months and 14 weeks. I love how you call them "gentleman in training" - so true.

  5. I loved your post over at Beth's! It seems you've got everything under control out there! I remember as a little girl when my dad, a Navy guy, would be on sea duty for months at a time. As a mom and grandma... I have such respect for how she did it all...

    I'll be visiting here often!


About Me

My photo
Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
