Well I survived another weekend without my wife. The best part, no trips to the emergency room, urgent care, or the vet. No one even got hurt. The only problem, due to my success I am sure she won't be cancelling plans to take another trip in January. I guess I will have another weekend of being a single dad. I guess that will be okay. I am proud of her and all that she does with the VFW. The weekend was actually a lot of fun. I got to spend a lot of time with my kids. My two youngest and I spent a lot of time in my rocking chair cuddling. It was rare that I didn't have one of them on my lap while watching the various ball games. Even Gwen spent some time cuddling with me. We watched a movie together and we had my parents and one of my sisters and her kids over for lunch, and we enjoyed the day together at church today. Don't get me wrong, I missed my wife. I don't sleep well when she is gone. I think it is because I am so afraid that I will not hear something, like E crying, or M falling out of bed or getting into something he shouldn't. Whatever it is I am always really tired by the time she gets home. Today I am actually doing better than normal, thanks to a nice nap this afternoon. Then when Nicole did get home she brought me some nice goodies. She brought me a chocolate rat. It was actually a extremely rich brownie covered in milk chocolate, it had almonds for ears and a cherry stem tail. It was delicious. I am actually finishing it right now. It was too rich to eat all at once. The other thing she brought me was a four back of sodas. As some people know I love classic sodas, especially root beers. One of my favorites from my youth is Sioux City Sarsaparilla. In the four pack was one of those, a Stewart's Root Beer, a Stewart's Orange Cream, and a Cherrywine. I am going to crack one open now, I am just not sure which to start with. Thanks honey.
