I have been without Mr W all this week while he is away welding in Alberta for 5 days (plus 2 days travel). We knew the day would come when he had to go away for work, but the timing couldn't have been better.

The little boy and I spent 3 days with my parents and then came home to the in laws visiting for another 3 days. They left this morning and Mr W will be home tomorrow evening.

Thank goodness for grandmas (and grandpas!) who: cuddle crying babies, help out with shopping, cook, clean, go on walks with mom, baby and 2 dogs, and just generally make life easier!

I know I CAN do this (be a mom that is) on my own for a few days, it is just easier with help.

Our savings are getting lower, so Mr W is under more pressure to find work. This little job helped a lot, and while he was away a few more job prospects came up. None in town however! I think we are going to have to accept that while Mr W is working towards his professional status as a forester he is going to have to take whatever forestry work is available, either on contract, or as a full time job. The next two possibilities are in Kamloops, and in Campbell River (2 hours away).

After a week away though, Mr W knows for sure he doesn't want to do what his dad did which was work away from home for weeks or even months at a time. Time is just too precious with our little guy!
