All Alone...

...what ever will I do with myself??

Quentin, Mallorye (yes, even with a broken leg), and Blake left this morning after our 2nd church service for Kansas City, MO for a mission trip. This is Blake's first and Mallorye's 4th. I'm so excited that Q is able to be there for Blake's first trip (he was there for Mallorye's first one) and I know they're going to have a great time serving God's people.

I have a few rather large projects I'd like to get done while they're away...we'll see how that goes. Already I miss them. This house is just to big and empty with everyone gone. Hopefully, my "projects" will keep my mind occupied.

Please pray for their safety while they're away.

I'll say a prayer for them!
I feel guilty for wanting alone time, but right now I just need an entire day to myself.
I'm sure you'll find tons of stuff to keep you busy - relax and enjoy yourself!

Well sis , I think your on the right track. Do some projects , get together with the lady friends, just whatever. Your alot like my wife Melissa in that ,you girls can actually make up things to do. LOL... from a guys prospective , we very rarely lack things to do, we just build the list a little differently ...

I figure you made it through the deployment, anything else that comes along that temporarily seperates family will most likely seem like a cakewalk in comparison.

My project list is never ending, and if it does come close to the end, theres always the 'honey-do' or 'daddy-do' list to fall back on :)...oh well for the most part I wouldnt change things to much... in another 20 years I will be retired God willing and the nest will be empty for me and the wife. I figure some things will be missed, may as well have fun and make the best of the chores, and projects.
