Day 6

I'm amazed at how fast the time is going for me during the last leg of Jim's trip. Tomorrow I return to working nights, which means for the next four days all I will be doing is working and sleeping. Jim will be home before I know it!

Since Jim's been gone, I have come to realize more each day how much I depend on him. While it's been fun to spend time with friends and family, it feels incomplete without him here. Speaking of friends and family, I am so appreciative of how they have taken care of me while my husband has been gone!

I spent this morning having a late breakfast with Shauna, Codi, and Christine after our sleepover last night at Codi's house. What fun! Then I spent some time with my mom and sister shopping at the mall (ALWAYS an enjoyable experience!). Finally, I wrapped up the day having dinner at Olive Garden and playing three rousing games of Moose Farkel with my parents. I love how, as the years have gone by, I have come to enjoy spending time with my parents more and more!

I was blessed to receive one text message from Jim. As I reported yesterday, Jim is in the mountains for the next couple of days and didn't know if he would be able to communicate with me. His text message was brief, but to summarize: Jim misses the creature comforts of the States. The rural mountains must be more "rural" than he originally thought!

Cries had: 2.0
Days to go: 5

I'm sorry we haven't had you over at all while your hubby has been away. Jason and I have been fighting the crud that's going around and haven't really done much of anything. :( If you want a break this next week, give me a call! Or...a text. :p
