Grandma to the Rescue

Bob is off to California on business. I've been lucky, he hasn't had to go since when we first got the babies home. He left early this morning and will be gone until late Thursday night. (Friday morning to be exact). Now, I was going to try to do it by myself, but one night two weeks ago changed my mind. There are just times when they have meltdowns starting around 5 P.M. It's very hard to handle by yourself, so I called Grandma to help out for a few days. Hey, I may benefit a bit from this business trip. I have scheduled another haircut and a pedicure. I'm not getting a manicure, (although I need it) because I have to do some major weeding around the house. They are just out of control. I should take some pics to show you how bad it is. Hey, what woman with twins has time for weeding???? I know some super M.O.M. is going to leave me a comment saying that they do it all. Right? :) I also need to do some errands that I don't get to do normally. I'm looking forward to the next few days, although I will miss Bob and I freak out everytime he travels.

Sorry your husband is out of town for the week! Very glad that your mom is coming to help you out. :)
Ok, so I will tell you that I actually DID week today. LOL Well, while the babies were napping I got some down, but it still looks HORRIBLE!
