It’s not mama anymore which is taking getting use too. Mike left this morning at 6:30 for another 10 days. Gone to someplace in the tri-state area, probably North Dakota but not positive until they are headed out the door. When he gets to work first thing Monday morning it’s unloading the semi to fill up the trucks and getting the crews together and then they know who they are working with and where they are going.
Take the stuff on the right and put it in the truck on the left and get to work. Mike was able to put some money into his college saving this pay period. YEAH!! He got caught up on insurance, paid the school for his housing down payment and paid off grandpa for his starter money when he worked away. Plus he bought me breakfast. I was impressed and happy and very proud. We had a great time while he was home and now will do my best to get stuff done while he’s gone.
Our trade, I will lose 5 pounds while he’s gone and he won’t lose anymore. I think that’s a fair trade. He’s at the perfect weight and is healthy and happy so told him eat well, sleep well and take care of himself and I will do the same. He worries I don’t eat when he’s gone so told him I’ll be good and get rid of an extra 5 lbs while eating healthy. I can try my best.
No bus driving today or tomorrow (or at least no call in’s yet) so think tonight I’ll take my daddy swimming. I don’t like the gym on Monday’s because of all the people so am hoping the pool won’t be so full. Tomorrow morning I’ll get to the gym by 5:30 and get a good workout in. Fruit was horrible expensive this week so other then apples and banana’s and a couple cans of pineapple we are fruitless. That’s plenty for the week just no good blue berries, raspberries or grapes. I did get some wonderful salad makings minus the tomatoes but will survive. I also picked up skinless chicken breasts. A good start for the week.
Today is Casey’s doctor appointment, please keep her in your prayers.
I’m off to take a quick shower and get my daycare day started. The laundry is already started, the fire is taken care of so just the chickens need attention and then Joss. It’s time to start some Valentine projects. I am also going to install my mama’s new printer and start my wood project. I’ll share pictures tomorrow when I get started on it.
Take care my friends and have a blessed day. I am going to try my best not to cry and learn that this is part of life and that I can handle it. Simple, nope but a fact of life to learn to deal with and move forward.
