So here I am sitting downstairs as the only adult in the house, thinking how hard it is going to be sleeping alone for the next 15 nights. I still haven't really grown up, as I mentioned in earlier posts, so being home "alone" is still a challenge for me. I will pat myself on the back for resisting the temptation of putting the baby to sleep in my bed though!
In case you don't know, Carl left today for the Ekati diamond mines in the NWT's. We tearfully, and excitedly, took him to the bus this morning to go to Edmonton. From Edmonton he flies to Yellowknife then from YK to Hayriver then a charter to the camp. I am very grateful that we have been given this amazing opportunity. I also feel very blessed to have a hard working husband who is willing to literally, go the extra few thousand miles to support his family. I know I can do the day to day things on my own. I am used to the single life because he almost always works 16+ hours a day. I do however miss the end of the day cuddle, and sharing a laugh about all the silly things the kids (mostly Lunden) have said. I know the next couple weeks will fly by but still...if anyone wants to come sleepover and help me watch for the Boogie Man, feel free!!
