Hubby Away, We Play

Once again, we're faced with Andrew being out of town. Only difference this time, he's in an unsafe place. So while the inconvenience of him being gone is still there, is safety is really my top priority. To help me not think about the situation, we have filled our schedule to the brim with activities. I can't believe he's already been gone for four days.

First off, I have to thank my friends who have come to the rescue and invited me just about everywhere this week. And, truth be told, I have taken most of them up on their generous offers of playdates, dinner and happy hour (with kids). Thank God for preschool which at least gives me some kind of break during the day to get things done. I don't know how I did it before without school. Oh yeah, I went crazy and hired babysitters. Funny how that works.

I am excited because Saturday we'll be going to see Harold and the Purple Crayon at the Adventure Theatre. My kids don't really know what a play is. They think we're going to the movies. Ha! I hope it's good. Then Monday I'm attending the local BlogHer conference here in town. Can I just say I am super excited about this? My parents agreed to come up and take my kids for a whole freakin' day while I network and smooze and pretend to be a real person again. [Squeal]

So while he's away in some remote part of the world with iffy running water, we're making the best of it here by playing with friends, watching extra movies and spending some fun time together.

Despite all of that....I can't wait for him to be home.
