Hello World 🙂
I haven’t forgotten about writing. Its just that I have been a single mom for the last 3 days. SP has been away for his MBA classes since Thursday morning and time is just going so quickly. I have just kept doing things one after the other, sometimes mechanically, sometimes purposefully and before I know it, its the end of the day. When he is in town, at least there is the sense of comfort that he is accessible by phone, although, if I call him at 10 am, he returns the call at 3pm, by which time, I have already saved the world(our world) twice. LOL! But at least he calls back. These 3 days have been like, he sends a good morning text message, then his phone is switched off till late in the night. I will not lie- it is exhausting, its alienating, but hopefully at the end of 16 months, it will be all worth it 🙂
Ms.A asked me yesterday,” WOW, it must be exhausting being a single mom ” I did a quick mental recount of all I had said during the day and couldn’t think of anything that I had said. I asked her,” Why do you say so? Did I say anything? ” and she said, “No, I can tell!” I swear, she has an uncanny way of reading my innermost thoughts. Really, she can! This isn’t the first time its happened, either. Even in the past, she has said something that has left me wide-eyed and open-mouthed, because she has just said what I was thinking about, totally unrelated to whatever we were doing at the time.
Ms.An has been teary and moody, she wants to go to Papa’s house( his hotel room) and she just wants him to be Batman and for her to be his side-kick and then she says in the same breath,” I will not kick papa, its not very nice, I will just be his side-kick ”
SP gets back tonight and we are all looking forward to having the man of home and hearts back. 2 hours to go …
Being a single mom
