My husband went out-of-town for a week for work and I am staying home with the baby.  I am sure it will be an adventure.  I do the bulk of the childcare, but it will be interesting to try and fit in meals, showers and the housework without his back up.  I took my last leisurely shower yesterday in anticipation of his departure.  He works long hours so I am used to being home alone with the baby quite a bit,  I think the main difference is that there is no anticipation of his company or the extra support for the fussier moments.  And then I think of all the people who are own their own much more than I am– my cousin with the Air Force husband who just got back from Afghanistan, single parents– and I realized I should just shut it.
