The Countdown

One Week and my hubby will be back in Africa and most importantly back in my arms (and I am not letting go).

How did we fare this week? Well aside from another bout of tonsillitis this time with my youngest, our internet being in and out (with emphasis on the latter) for a week making any grasp with the outside world (including communication with my husband) and of course blogging very difficult, and gas prices rising to $4.15 per gallon we are doing well!

The "doing well" side of things: I’ve had some sweet encouragements, lots of play dates (sorry Heidi but that is what we call them here too) and even some adult conversations this week. To top it off, I have a “Girls night out” tonight with a dear friend whose hubby is also out of town.

All in all God has been very good to us and I am grateful…. and it does help knowing we only have 1 more week to go! YAHOO!!!

one more week really? it hasn't seemed that long at all! :-]

(just kidding really i am)

really, still notorious for the 'play date' feelings? oh well.

I bet you all will be waiting "patiently" at the door for him to arrive! You have done amazingly well as I would have been a basket case!!!

Soon you will be counting the hours instead of the days!!!! $4.15 a gallon. Ouch!!! We are complaining about $2.99 but I know it is going to go up for all of us, along with everything else. I'm glad God is my source and provider!!!!!

WOOHOO! Hope this next week flies for you and all goes well.

My husband is gone for the morning and I'm missing is grand!

my hub has been out of town for 5 weeks... but is home on the weekends. let's just say it; single parenting is NOT for the faint of heart.

you aren't very excited about his return, are you.
