My kids rarely saw me outside of the store.
Our home was filled with contention and frustration (not all the time on the contention, just more than necessary.)
On a good day, our house looked like a hand grenade was tossed in...on a bad day, well...it wasn't pretty.
Things slipped that shouldn't have and in general, it was a really stressful time for us.
So now that I am free, I am soooo happy to clean and organize and toss and sew and play with my kids and do fun things.
Don't get me wrong. I loved the store. I did a good job with it. I just need to spend time with my boys and make sure we all are communicating well.
And truly, I wonder how anything ever got accomplished with me gone all the time...but I can tell you now, that I am so glad to know that my kids still love me, Jeff is glad to have me home and someday, my house will be clean.
PS all that got done yesterday were the bathrooms, 5 loads of laundry, our shirts hung up and a good start on my decor for the table for enrichment.
