The Way it Used to Be
The girls and I have spent the day out on the town! We went to Payless, Kohl's, Target, and Kroger for some groceries. I am exhausted and am counting on the girls being that way as soon as they lay down for the night too!
The title of this blog is in regards to our life for the next week. Alex has been asked constantly to travel again due to the oil spill and need for lots of staff to go to the coast. He left last night to head to Mississippi. He will be gone all next week and should be back next weekend (if his company doesn't talk him into staying longer. And I have already warned him of the insane lady he will have here with his children if he agrees to do that.) We manged to get the girls enrolled in a cheer camp all next week after school until around 5:00pm so that I can work my regular hours. The girls are really excited about the camp too.
Olivia has asked about Alex quiet a bit and doesn't quiet understand what is going on with it all. She cried when he left because she wanted to ride in the rental car that he got. We had supper at Macaroni Grill before he left and then took him to get his rental car. I know it's going to be an adjustment for all of us to go back to the way things used to be when he traveled all the time but we will make it.
Alex had the girls each paint me a little decorative dish for mother's day. And we met up with Nana and Poppa at Hot Springs for a mother's day meal at Out Back. Olivia was all about her Poppa that night. She was very upset when she had to leave them and couldn't ride back to Newhope with them.
Abi was so excited to go to Macaroni Grill because they let you color on the tablecloth (butcher paper). She drew her family. I love Alex's hair style, lol.
We love you Daddy! And don't worry about us while you're gone.
