John left on Thursday morning to head to D.C. He got there Saturday night after having a bit of a set-back Saturday afternoon.
made it to Washington, DC, late last night - behind schedule, of course - after hitting a doe near Abingdon, VA, in broad daylight. Truck still drivable w/casualties: bumper, right signal & windshield washer reservoir. Auto parts store got me on the road again w/bulb, translucent amber tape & set of wiper refills; then convinced the fellow behind the counter to pull/bend the bumper off the tire w/his F-250. Whew.
Poor thing! The good news is he got there and he's fine. Just a few cosmetic issues with the truck. He checked into his temporary apartment and moved in most of his stuff late into the night. It looks nice from what I could see from his computer camera. We've tried out the iChat but he only has wireless connection so it's a little slow. I can see him better than he can see me....I almost think thats a good thing! LOL! The main point is the kids can see daddy while he is so far away.
The kids and I are fine. We all miss him desperately. It's hard being here without him. I got spoiled having him here full time the past 8 weeks. I'm so very thankful we had the option of him taking "paternity leave". He had the chance to really bond with Maya and Sagan and I got to ease back into maintaining the house and children while I healed from the c-section.
Before he left we had a dinner at the some friends home and celebrated John's birthday a little early. His is tomorrow and he'll be all alone. If you have his email make sure to send him a message and call him if you have his number! Anyway, It was so much fun to watch the kids play and have a great last visit before we move. Thanks Joe and Rose for inviting us!
Otherwise we are fine. It's a little lonely being here by myself and when both of the kids start crying it's hard on my heart...and head. Honestly though, I'm doing ok. I'm glad it's only one month though!!!!
