Well this is hairy.

I wrote this on Friday:

Jammies is going to Korea tomorrow. We found this out yesterday. He is going in order to be yelled at for a week. My understanding of Jammies' company is that they make broken parts. Then the clients complain, and then Jammies helps the patch the part for the clients. But this particular part is so irrevokably FUBAR that the client wants to yell at someone in person, for five days.

I'm a bit petrified about single parenting for the next week. It is very good that I didn't have any advance notice, or I would have fretted myself into a tizzy. Rather, I launched immediately into planning the hell out of the next six days.  (I went ahead and hired a babysitter to help out for Sunday.)

I'm also a bit curious what Korea is like. It would be fun to be the one to go, sort of, and document the whole weird experience of being so yelled at. Plus great photos. Plus fourteen hour flights.

Jammies gets back Thursday night, and then on Friday we head to Denver to be with Jammies' family.  I will feel entitled to relax at that point.

I wrote this on Saturday:

7:30 am:
Single-parenting has begun. The days are ordered from hardest to easiest. But the kids slept in until 6:30 (for real, that is great) and we'll see how everything goes.

2:30: Today is not going very well.

I wrote this on Sunday: (nada)

Today is Monday, and I suppose I should just post this self-explanatory thing. I have my standard list of accumulated notes to write about, but today is Dentist Day, and I have exactly one hour by myself at home before it's time to get the kids to go to the dentist, and other needs take precedence.

Good luck! Hope it goes smoothly.

I would love to be in a position where I could demand that someone be presented for me to yell at. For five days.

On Sunday, I hired a nanny, and had a similar thought: having a perfectly-compliant pseudo-spouse is awesome. More importantly, the week is over!

Yikes

Four kids, all on your own? One of them a newborn?

I can't decide which I would rather not do: fly to Korea and be yelled at for five days, or deal with handling four kids (one a newborn) all on my own for five days.

I would like Door # 3, with the goats, please.

Re: Yikes

I survived!! It's one of those things where it's hard to connect with the unpleasantness the moment it's over. Or maybe that's vacation talking. Either way, It's over and I'm really glad.
