Heaven and Hell

Today was the end of a very long weekend for me and the girls. The wife worked four days in a row. Now most people are 9-5ers. My wife and I are not and probably never will be. When the wife goes to work it is for a twelve hour shift. So I have the girls from 6:30am until the wife gets home which is usually around 8pm. It can be a VERY long days sometimes. I'm not Suzy home-maker in the least bit. I was never cut out to do this but I do my best. I do love spending time with my girls but I can only take only so much of the crying and poopy diapers. I think I handled it very well. Today I was a little on edge.  When the wife came home she could tell I had had enough.

We decided to get pizza for dinner tonight. The wife told me I should go pick up some pizza so I could get out of the house for a bit. I had pretty much been at home all weekend except for quick trips to the store. The hour I was gone picking up pizza and wine for the wife really helped. When I got back it was time for the girls to go to bed. The wife took care of Lucy and I got Maggie ready for bed. I read her a few stories and she was off to dream land. I planned on only reading two stories but Maggie got four out of me (what can I say, it is hard to say no to my little princess.) Lucy went to sleep right away and the wife and I got to enjoy our pizza.

I would like to thank the wife for working these hard shifts so I may finish Paramedic School. Only nine more months until I am finished.
