Hubby arrived fine in Scotland today. Afte about 15 hours of travelling. He called this morning at 9:30 my time.

I had a killer headache earlier, and it is better now, but still there.

One of hubby's best friends -- the woman who sat next to him in the community band he plays in -- died last night. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer a couple of weeks ago. She last played with the band on Aug. 24th, exactly a month before she died. She played saxophone and her and my hubby both played first part. We think she was 72. She was put into a drug induced coma about a week and half ago to solve her pain issue, and was never brought out. My husband never got to really say goodbye (he's not the type to go and talk to comatose patients). He will, of course, be out of the country for the viewing or funeral (we assume he won't be back in time), which will bother him greatly.

I was a maniac with the kids this morning, in part from the killer headache. I got to relax a bit this afternoon while the youngest napped and the older ones watched TV and played. It was actually something I needed greatly. I worked on getting study material together for my son's religion test, so I can help him study for it. The test is on Tuesday.

The "fix a flat" has held for the tire. That's a good thing.

I received the next part of [livejournal.com profile] jeconais's Gabrielle story, Hope, this afternoon. I will work on betaing it tonight.

I also got back 2 of my pre-betas for my Remus/Tonks fic, called, Together. I hope to work through those tonight, too, if time allows. *smooches [livejournal.com profile] jeconais and [livejournal.com profile] jenadamson*

Time for dinner. Then bookbag packing and final studying. Then the bedtime ritual for the boys. Then working on the betaing stuff.

My weekend and week will be busy.  My husband leaves tonight for Scotland until Thursday evening.

It has been a long time since I've had to single parent.  The last time I had to for a week was probably when Son 4 was an infant.  And I think the other times since have just been for an overnight and that's been a  couple of years ago.  So this week could be... interesting.

I'm getting my grocery list ready, and will head out as soon as the husband gets back from getting his hair cut.  Then we'll do lunch, and probably just hang out while he gets ready to leave.  He leaves to go to the airport about 3:30, then the boys and I will head to 5:00 Mass at our church and dinner at my parents' church which is right around the corner from our church.  We have to go to the school sometime and pick up Matt's Math book.  He forgot it.  I think we may try to finish up homework tonight after we get home and get baths.

Since we're going to Mass tonight, we'll be able to stay home tomorrow morning (and I won't have to get everyone up, dressed, and out the door for church), and then go to lunch with my Mom, brother and aunt (a weekly tradition).  Then we'll have the afternoon to play and study for any upcoming tests this week (yes, we study in advance -- or we try).  Son 2 has at least 2 tests this week...I think actually 3.

I will probably be online more than usual this week - but it will be after everything is done at home.  I don't sleep well when my hubby is gone and I plan to do some power cleaning while the boys sleep in hopes to wear myself out.  I'm also hoping to do some more writing this week and catch up on things online.  Submissions for PhoenixSong open tomorrow and will remain open until Wednesday night.

If you can spare some "stay safe" thoughts and/or prayers for my hubby while he travels, I would appreciate it.

And continued *huggles* for [livejournal.com profile] aggiebell90  and her family as they weather the hurricane.  It doesn't appear to be beating on them too terribly bad.  They appear to be right on the very edge.
