Chris comes home tomorrow morning....Yay!!!!
He has been working on a job in Col. since Tues. morning. I can't remember the last time I have been away from him for four days and I hope it doesn't come again anytime soon.
I miss the essence of him. He protects us and takes care of us just the way the Lord intended and I can't wait for him to be home, safe. My heart is always a little uneasy when he works to the wee hours of the morn with nobody around on Col. east side. I so appreciate you honey. I miss him settling many of the weekly challenges between me and the teenager, he's the buffer and ultimately the one who lays down the law in a way that she chooses not to challenge, he keeps me sane in this area. He loves us up daily, and we are starving for it now. Oh yes in the 4 degree weather he has all the tricks to keeping the wood furnace working just right that it is 70 or above and I can't seem to get it above 66, so I miss his warmth literally. That is just the tip of the iceberg on all that he does around here, mostly I just want his strong arms around me hugging me.
I have battled bronchitis all week, and it is finally starting to go away but was a lot to handle being the only one here with the kids. I had to be careful of the med. prescribed because of how tired it made me. One day I had gone to pick up Natty from school and fell asleep in the car waiting for her teacher to bring them out like she always does. I looked up and there she is taking Natalie back into the school because she thought I was late. I jumped out of the car parked 10 feet away from them and ran to the door, explained and swiftly collected my child.....how embarrassing.
I did manage to do some good business this week and the kids and I have had good days for the most part.
But tomorrow he comes home and I am soooooo thankful.
Hope everyone had a great week!!
