Just wanted you all to know that while the kids and I are doing our best to MAKE LIFE FUN ... and we have had FUN this week ... it is SO. NOT. FUN. to not be living with my husband.
We moved a week ago. We have tried to chat for at least a few minutes every day. (But, he has horrible cell reception, and spotty internet in the camping trailer that he now calls "home".)
Ben had a track meet today. The kids and I left home at 1:00 ... and returned at 9:30. Looooong day! We drove an hour and 20 minutes to the ferry dock to pick up sweet Papa and Hosanna. (It is MUCH cheaper for them to walk on to the ferry than to drive.) We back-tracked 20 minutes to the track meet. Watched the meet. (Quality time with sweet Papa ... NOT. We sat next to each other for most of the track meet, but we had 2 young boys crawling all over us the whole time. They have missed their Papa.) Back to ferry town after the track meet. Two hours until next scheduled ferry. Dinner for everyone at the Mexican Restaurant. Back to the ferry dock to deliver Papa. (Hosanna came home with me for a couple of days.)
Good to see Papa, but OH. SO. HARD. Spent 5 hours with him, without even 5 minutes of alone time or quality talk time. So. Sad.
It will be another week before we see each other again ... at next week's track meet. Hoping for a few quality phone conversations this week, and maybe a Skype chat.
