So, how many more nights?...

Tonight it was Hadland's turn to miss daddy. When I tucked him in, he asked me to tell Daddy to give him a kiss and a hug. I reminded him that Daddy would be gone for a few more days. Next question: "How many nights has he been gone?" Answer: "Six." Next question: "How many is he going to be gone altogether?" Answer: "Eight" Then: "So when Daddy gets home on Saturday you need to tell him to give me eight kisses and hugs." He misses his Daddy!

But the heart-wrenching one is Lauren. When she gets sad or wants to be comforted, she usually goes in to Daddy for a hug. So now she just walks in to his office, stands there crying a little and then walks back out. Pathetic! She can't say it, but she sure misses her Daddy, too!

Then there's me. I just walk around the house in a daze. I go to the computer every hour or so and look at everyone's blogs. Usually no one has anything new, so I surf a little bit, and then walk out. I am so bored I don't know what to do! I even surfed Costco.com tonight! Someone give me something interesting to read on the internet before I go nuts!! I still have three more days until Larry gets home. I've heard it said that only boring people get bored...well, I guess the truth hurts!

seems like days last 34 hours when daddy is gone!!
the only thing i find good about these times is that i appreciate him so much more and i think the flame burns a little hotter once he's home. hee hee!
if he knew that i think he'd leave a lot more often. :)
hang in there!!

I do have compassion for you. it is hard to comfort the kiddos when you miss him so much too.

We love you, Watermelanie!! :)
