The kids and I have really enjoyed each other during their little vacation. Today is their last day off and we are all a little bummed out. David also leaves the states tomorrow, which means no more daily phone calls or text conversations.
Since I am having the cramps (TMI? Too bad) I am taking it rather easy today although I have a few chores to get done by tomorrow. My Mom is coming here tomorrow morning to help me run a couple of errands that need to get done. I can't believe how much peace of mind it gives me to have her so close by, and so willing to help me out. Since we all know how my anxiety can get the best of me, it is nice that she is helping me combat that tomorrow. I just don't want to be one of those drivers that gets in an accident because I don't know how to drive in the ice. I'm sending up mega-prayers that it melts soon so I won't have to worry about skidding around.
The kids and I all cried when we watched The Amazing Race last night. We are all still doing really well with David being gone although there are moments where I know I could just start crying and not stop for a couple of hours if I let myself. I think that it will be good for the kids to get back to school tomorrow, to see their friends, and get their mind off of things. While it has been good bonding time for us this snowy weekend, I know they need to be out of the house and I can't keep them right beside me the whole six months, no matter how much I want to!
I am going to go get the heating pad and put it on my stomach for a little while. Cramps hurt.
