Single parenting sucks

If you are a single parent, I worship you. I have been on my own since last Friday and I'm dying. I suppose I'd get used to it if I had to do this all the time, but I don't, so I'm pooped. Parenting is the one area where Mr. Geekymom actually wins points. He really does do 50%--at least--of the parenting tasks. It's just nice knowing that every other night I don't have to make sure the kids have brushed their teeth, had baths and are tucked in for the evening. On weekends, we trade off soccer games.

Today was hectic. Work was killer and then I had to pick up my son at chess club (future geek), then go to soccer practice, now he's on his way to Cub Scouts (which I don't approve of, but will let him figure that out himself) riding with a friend. Little Geekymom (aka my daughter) and I are going to have a girls movie night and watch Home on the Range. Thank you Netflix!

I know you don't really care, but hey, just had to share.

Tomorrow, I'll be out canvassing for Kerry. I'm working my polling location on the 2nd and I get my training this weekend--pretty excited. My neighbor is some kind of election leader and she wanted a Democrat on the inside. Apparently, the Republicans were up to no good last election. We're in a swing state, so I could end up being on tv, checking ballots for hanging chads--yes, we use punch cards.

Look for a new design this weekend.
