Good morning, my loyal blog-following people. I'm blogging from bed this morning without benefit of a light (beyond my screen illumination) so forgive me my spelling and (probably) my grammar as well. I'm not sure why I should get a pass on grammar just because I'm typing in the dark but roll with me on this one, ok? :)
Why am I blogging in the dark? Simply stated: the kids are still sleeping and I am not ready to have them awake yet and the light from my room shines into Kaylen's room and has the huge potential for waking them. We can't have that yet. :)
Yesterday was a tough day for my little girl. Last night was a tough night for both the kiddos. Dakota is getting ready for her trip to Europe and while she is gone, the kids won't be able to have open contact with her. The cost and time difference makes it all but impossible. She will be there over a week and the kids are reeling from knowing they won't see or talk with her. My heart breaks from them but I know they will survive this. The real question is: Will I? The screaming and crying and flinging themselves at the suitcase she left here was more than I could take last night. We finally got ahold of Dakota and she talked with them for a while. Kaylen calmed down but Kelton was still in tears when he finally fell asleep. Poor boy. I know the anticipation is way worse than then actuality and I know he will be just fine...I just wish I could convince him of that before I lose my ever lovin' mind. Maybe now is a good time for me to look into a life insurance quote for myself because I swear, the week leading up to her trip just might do me in. :)
In other news......the Burgerville on Mill Plain is hosting a fund raising night for our school from 4-8 so if you are in the mood for Burgerville (and personally speaking - I am ALWAYS in the mood for Burgerville) head on over there tonight. You will be supporting a great school AND getting the best cheeseburger in town.
