My silly little blog was pretty quiet this past week, but my house sure wasn’t! Eric climbed on an airplane on Sunday for a week long business trip. I won’t lie. I was really nervous about him going. We’ve been together since I was 19 and never been apart for this long, let alone being apart for this long and me at home alone with four small children. I almost chickened out on Sunday and told him he just couldn’t go and we’d just have to somehow do without income and a house and eating and such. Somehow, I put on a smile (through the tears) and let him go.
What a LONG week! Sunday night, Eric ended up stranded in an airport as not one but two of the airplanes he was supposed to fly on were taken out of service for “mechanical failure.” He could have driven to the place they were going in about 6 or 7 hours, while the trip by airplane ended up taking about 21 hours. Happily, he got there safe and sound thought neither of us got much sleep that first night.
The days were not too bad, I guess because I’m used to him being gone at work. The nights really were pretty terrible, especially when the coyotes decided that spending the night in the field behind our house howling their terrifying, screeching howl would be a good plan.
Thought the week seemed to go very slowly, it did end and I did survive. I even found that I have some very wonderful helpers as the kids really stepped up to the plate and helped me get things done.
All this to say, I’ve missed you all! It’s so good to be back behind my keyboard. I have some good stuff in the works, as soon as I get the laundry done. ;)
Oh and by the way, thanks to all of you who “liked” my silly little blog on Facebook. If finally got the button working (I think) on the side of the blog. Hope you’ll “like” me if you haven’t already. Happy Sunday!
