Without a husband for a while...

I just sat down with my husband for a talk...

...about his JV baseball schedule. :(

From now until the end of May they have 20-some games!

So we sat down to write everything on the calendar and find out what days we will need an extra sitter after school.

A friend of mine's husband held this position for the last several years and quit when the AD didn't promote him to head coach...which I agree was the right choice for their family. My husband took the job because it's only a couple months, they were desperate, and the extra cash is nice.

Little did I know I'd be a single mom for 2 1/2 months. Practice days aren't bad but once April comes, 4 out of 5 days each week are game days so he won't be home until the girls' bedtime.

I was already looking forward to summer, and now I REALLY hope the end of the school year goes quickly!


  1. Oh boy! It sounds like you will have quite a schedule for the next couple months! Maybe you will get some quality bonding time as a single parent. :) Good luck!

  2. Baseball season is my nemesis! Although my dear only watches it. Here's to a quick few months!

  3. Yikes! I hugely appreciate the investment coaches have made Ito my sons but I also realize it is at a huge price to their own families. Hope this time passes quickly!
