This might be the longest break I’ve taken on the blog. Thanks to your emails, there is no way I could have forgotten to update it.
Wayne is on day 5 of chemo in Houston. He is tired but doing well. His dad is with him to remind him to drink lots of water and take care of him. It’s comforting to know they’re together, but it is difficult to be back here and not with Wayne. None of it feels good, but sometimes what is necessary doesn’t always feel good. I keep reminding myself of this. Sometimes multiple times a day.
I started work this week. The office is great! I am traveling to Pierre next week to start selling advertising. I’ll be gone M-Wednesday evening – missing Wayne by 1 day. He gets back Monday night, so I think we average almost 2 weeks apart before we see each other (between him being in Houston and my travel schedule). I hate doing the math on that because it makes me so sad.
The kids had their first week of daycare. Caeden has adjusted really well, although the first few days were horrible. He hated it. I hated it. It was just hard. However, it has turned out to be great for him. They keep him busy with activities and lots of kids to play with. Claire is upstairs with the other babies, and I am less thrilled with her arrangement. There are 12 babies and 3 people to care of them – all teenagers. She comes home dirty everyday and it is just so hard to see her not cared for in the manner that she needs. Needless to say, I am looking for somewhere else for her. Daycare – the entire topic has the ability to send my blood pressure through the roof. Sometimes I wonder if it’s going to be one of those things that I will ever get used to.
We’ve been staying with Dave and Donna until our house sells. Donna has been wonderful! The mornings and evenings to so much smoother because of her help. When I fall into bed absolutely exhausted at 9 pm, she still finds the energy to go to the grocery store. Bless her!
Speaking of house, here is our listing: Koop House For Sale. We had it almost sold last weekend but the people who loved it needed 4 bedrooms and so they went with their 2nd choice. Such a bummer!
Off to weed the strawberries. They are starting to ripen! Yummm.
