Mike is gone for a few days. It's something we planned. It's something that is needed.
A few weeks ago we decided that Mike needed to get away and have some extended hours with God. It worked out well that someone we know is on vacation and he can "house sit". Convenient way for him to have a place to just chill out and pray and hang with God and get some direction for his life... and ultimately ours since we go together.
We feel that change is coming our way. Some big. Some small. All good. Mike will be using this time to get refreshed and reconnected and refocused. It will be good for all of us.
In the meantime it's just me and the kids here at home. Thankfully we are on a letter of the alphabet that has tons of things for us to do to learn it. It will keep us busy and busy is good. I'll also be eating some lousy meals. I decided to make all things easy... pizza, hot dogs and then one night we will have french fries and fish sticks. I know it's not a good meal but it's F week so we will have some finger foods... like french fries and fish sticks. :)
And I will also have some long hours alone... good way to get in a good book or some crafting!
