I have a few things I want to share with you but our only camera is my iPhone and I don't have the sync cord since Mark is gone for this week and took it away with him. I know we have another one somewhere, but I don't know where it is. So what is the point in sharing things with no pictures to go along? It kind of makes a bland post, I think.
So instead I will whine to you all about how I have to spend 3 nights all alone (well, obviously not completely alone, since the kids will be here) while hubs is out of town working. I admit, I cried on the phone to him. I'm horribly whiny and mopey when I'm the one left home alone.
Yet I am totally gung-ho when it's me who gets to go somewhere. Like last summer when I went to Chilliwack and Nanaimo for a week. And in just two months I'll be headed back north for a quick trip before going down south to the Okanagan for my sister's wedding. All while leaving Mark at home. Though he will join me for the wedding. I should probably feel sorry for him, since when I go, he is COMPLETELY alone because I take the kids with me. At least I get a warm body to sleep with.
And what about all those families where the husband has to work on the rigs for weeks at a time? I have it super easy compared to that. Or military families. Obviously God knew that I wouldn't be able to survive any kind of deployment. I barely survive a weekend.
And you know what is the frustrating thing? I was missing him a lot and feeling super lonely, and was glad he called before heading to bed. And I still fight with him! I mean, couldn't I put things aside and just let them go? Why do we have to fight?
It's probably because I'm hungry. I'm frantically dieting at the moment (so I can fit my dress for the wedding) and have only lost 7ish pounds since I started. Ok, so when I write that down, it actually seems like a bit of an accomplishment. But I think to me it doesn't count because it's 7 pounds that I regained after my last weight loss, on top of gaining back what I had lost.
But now I'm tempted to go on a rant about weight loss. I won't subject you to that...tonight. Tomorrow is fair game.
Good night, pray that I am able to sleep.
