I love Fridays. =)
Especially on weekends when Philip doesn't have to work... once Friday gets here, I feel like I sort of breath a sigh of relief. Relief that there will be another big person around for a while, to talk to about more than trucks, books, snacks, blocks, etc.. and also to help with our two little munchkins for the next two days!
It Did occur to me yesterday (maybe I had been trying not to think about it, hoping it would go away), that in just two weeks (actually less than that, 12 days), Philip will be leaving for a whole week of training in Texas! This will be the longest we've been apart when I wasn't away somewhere visiting someone, and also the first time he'll be gone since Moriah came along. I am a little bit worried about it, but I'm sure it will be fine, especially if I plan lots of fun stuff for us to do each day, so we don't go crazy... =)
Also, less than 24 hours after he returns from that trip, we hit the road for Michigan and Ontario! Since we have the van now, and flying is soo expensive, we'll be driving up there for the first time. With all the delays we usually have in airports, it'll probably take about the same amount of travel time, and we'll save a boatload of money! I'm really hoping there will still be some snow around for Keenan to play in. He was too young last time to remember it. I got out all his snow clothes today and had him try them on... we still need boots.
I decided to make myself a sling today. With Moriah still not feeling great, she isn't happy for very long lying flat (since she can't breath very well), and is very comforted by being snuggled, so
I figured I'd have to figure out some way to still be able to get things done around the house while holding her.
