Has anyone seen my husband?


Has anyone seen my husband? 

Seriously. I don't think I have seen him since school started.
Volleyball has taken over our lives.
So, too, has girl scouts, Chamber meetings, PTO, housework, brownies, golf tournaments, impromptu  meetings for work, ministry work, carpooling, play dates, doctor appointments, coaching duties, work...
Shall I go on?
Sure, I sleep next to someone. But I'm not sure it's my husband because I'm dead to the world by the time he comes to bed. And when I wake up he isn't there - I think he is running. 

What's scary is that is just a few years ago I worked with a woman who has three girls - all of whom are older than my kids. I couldn't believe how much she drove around town. I mean, she drove EVERYWHERE. ALL THE TIME. It tired me to hear her daily schedule. 

Work was her reprieve. 

And here I am. Entering the scary, frightening, hectic and crazy world of kids with social calendars more full than mine. 

Still, I think I would be able to handle it fine. If I could only locate my husband. Maybe this man who is sleeping next to me will know where to find him. 

Now I just have to make sure I can stay awake to ask him. 

Take a look...maybe you've seen him! Pretty good-looking guy, last time I checked. ;)
