It is so hard dealing with things right when hubby leaves on a trip... I just find it very hard to focus. Hubby left mid morning for Germany, thankfully he will be back Wednesday night, but that is still 5 days with the kids on my own! I at least have gotten some house work completed, but there is still a lot to do. The last two weeks all my spare time has been taken up reading the Twilight series of books. It is an excellent read, which in some ways was the problem! I found I didn't want to put the books down at all, so the house was a little neglected.
Not a whole lot planned for the duration of hubby's trip, although I am planning to take advantage of Safeway's 10% Tuesday this week. Figure it makes sense to get as much of my Christmas food shopping done early, and at a reduced price! Now if I could just convince hubby that we need a chest or upright freezer!
Speaking of purchases, we might be close to buying a vehicle to haul a trailer with. The trailer that we want to get could be hauled with my van, but it would put us at the top end of the weight restrictions. Hubby has found a number of 2004/2005 Dodge Durango's for between $10,000 and $12,000. The price is low enough that it wouldn't hurt at all to purchase one... in some ways the economic down turn is a bonus for us! We aren't hurting financially, and don't expect to, but it is allowing us to purchase things at reduced prices.
