How do you cope? DH has just started his new Job as Assistant Manager at Clarks Shoes today and has been told that next week he will start training in London and then Camberly for two weeks. They will be putting him up in a hotel during that time (all expenses paid travel, food etc). DH is excited, but understandably nervous. Myself I am torn between, YAY I get to watch what I want on telly and OMG no adult conversation for 2 weeks! I coped okay durning the 6 years I was a single parent, but then I lived with my parents, so there was always another adult that came home at the end of the day. Now I have two children (one disabled) and I am wondering how I am going to cope with my sanity in tact (I have visions on myself rocking back and forth in the corner at 3am while the girls are up watching teletubbies oe Wall-e on repeat and eating junk).
