Countdown

This is the final week of the Professor's job. He leaves for Metropolis on Sunday to start the new job and will be returning (hopefully, if good weather holds) on weekends. I have been trying to warn the girls about this new arrangement, since it could go on for some time. (We have had almost zero interest from people wanting to buy our house.) Anyway, when I told Blossom that on Sunday daddy would have to start his new job and we wouldn't see him everyday she said, "Mom, that terrifies me."
She has definitely learned the art of exaggeration from me. haha
Needless to say the Professor and I are not sleeping well in lieu of this upcoming separation. I am living in a state of semi-oblivion and am considering following the example of my dear sis and investing in a box of twinkies. :-)

Not easy, but it can be done, especially when you know it is not forever. Once a week may seem terrible but that is what helps. The years David was in the military he was gone 8 months out of the year, but it didn't seem like that to me because we saw him at least once a week. Just make those times when he is home happy ones!

Oh, I"m so sorry. I know separation can be difficult for you and the girls - but you'll get through it as a family! Hopefully the housing market will pick up again and you'll be able to join the Professor soon!

poptarts (and a glass of wine) work better...

so sorry about the separation. It is going to be hard on all of you I am sure. Hopefully it won't be for a long time.
