Please beer me strength that I make it through the next 5.5 days watching Funkytot (4 years old) by myself. My husband is going to DC on Saturday for a conference and then flying to NY for a job interview. I don't know how military wives do it - seriously!

Aww, funky, much strength beered to you! I've watched my kids on my own for up to a week, and it can be tough, but there are some perks to it. Like, once the kiddo is in bed for the night, the evening is yours! Maybe watch a movie or TV show that you know your husband might not particularly like or read a book. Enjoy some you time. Good luck! :)
Whenever I'm about to do something, I think, "Would an idiot do that?" And if they would, I do not do that thing.

I once had my twins for 3 weeks when my husband was on a business trip. They were 18 months or so. I was dreading it, but it turned out that it helped me get more on a schedule. Instead of, "When [Dad] comes home, we'll have dinner and he can help me get them to bed," I had to just do it on my own, so I wasn't kind of waiting around for his help. Then when he came back, I said, "This is our schedule, you need to get with it!" :)

I think military spouses get to be very self-sufficient.

Anyway, how did it go, funky?

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (although I was definitely ready for DH to get home). I worked 3 of the days (so I only had to deal with morning and night time - which can be pretty bad) and on the weekend I planned play dates, a trip to Toys R Us (for him to play with all the toys), and shamefully, lots of TV.  ;D
