Oh my what an interesting day! The boys wanted Daddy all morning but he had to work. They miss him so very much and when he is here they want to spend every minute with him. Makes my heart ache when he is away or is not able to spend the time with them they so desperately desire.
In an effort to distract them I was going to take them to "run some errands" this afternoon. Really just get out of the house and hope they fell asleep for just a little while in the car. I went and filled the car up with gas and it is near a place they go from time to time to play for a few hours when I have an appointment or stuff. Drop in child care. They asked over and over and over again to go so I finally just said, okay, if you really want to go. So the boys spent their afternoon there.
I was kind of in shock all afternoon. I didn't know what to do with myself. I came home and cleaned and then sat and watched some shows I have had on DVR for like 3 weeks. DVR is filling up so I have to get busy watching these things or delete them. I am so not a TV watcher. So I like to be able to watch 2 or 3 shows at a time and just fast forward through all the commercials. Thank goodness for whoever invented DVR! And tomorrow they go to PDO so I will be able to get more cleaning done and possibly some organizing as well. This is such a very strange feeling. Is this what I am going to feel when they start school for real? I kind of feel lost to be honest. Strange. Very strange.
I will say this though. It is pretty cool they are actually WANTING to go places now instead of just wanting to stay "at home" with me all the time. Opens all kinds of new doors for us!
