Bachen' It Up

My wife is with her family this week for her grandmother's memorial service. That leaves me and my best friend from college to "bach' it" this week.

So far so good. We haven't starved as of yet, and the house is still in order. ...of course, we're computer types so it's not like we're prone to make a huge mess anyway... unless it's spilled popcorn while watching TV episodes online.

Even though we're still in the first days of being without Brittany, I have already gained a new respect and growing empathy for you single mothers, wives of service men, and those of you with husbands who travel a lot. Granted, your experience is naturally different from mine, but I'm starting to get a glimpse of it.

The one part of this that I'm missing is my kids. I know it's hard to care for them by yourself, but there's something lonely about coming home without your family there (even if your best friend is basically family... it's still not quite the same).

So, for you mothers--and fathers--out there who have to carry on without your significant other, this post is for you.

I wish I had some insight or encouragement for you, but I don't know enough. Just know that I'm experiencing a tiny fraction of your life. I'd be happy to pray for you this week. Feel free to comment or shoot me an email.

For the rest of you, be blessed this week as you spend time with your family!

P.S. I ran across the following code on Sonlight's site today:

Thought it was funny. Anyone else find it as funny as I do? Or am I too web nerdy?
