All By Myself (well, 'cept for the kids!)

Hubbs, at this very moment, is on his way home from the airport with our oldest boy. Which means ... STEVEN IS IN THE HOUSE!!!

For a whole 12 hours. At which point they will BOTH vacate the premises for the woods and all of it's manly glory. They are going hunting for the weekend and will not be home until Sunday.

Now, a GOOD son woulda brought his WIFE along so that the mama could have a little fun. But, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

(I'm NOT bitter ... much)

This will be the first time, in this house, that Hubbs will not be here to protect us from all of the things that go bump in the night. Now, I had pretty much gotten used to all of the noises that the old house made and could actually sleep through the night when he was gone. I am praying that I can sleep here too. This house has some, shall we say, "issues", that cause it so creak and such. Add to that the fact that the HVAC unit seems to have a mind of it's own, the sump pump goes crazy at times and the toilet is constantly running and we have a possible mental breakdown in the making. But I'm NOT worried ... much.

So, if ya think of it, could ya lift up some prayers with our names on it while he is gone. As well as a few with the fella's names on it. 'Cause, ya know, we all remember the time they went hunting and came home early because of Steven's BROKEN KNEE!!! We do NOT want that to happen again. Thank you and Amen!

Also, there is that little issue of me just not liking, AT ALL, being away from my man.

Yeah, there is that...

4 of ya left some love:

I'l pray for you...noises always seem louder and more frequent in my house when Darcy is gone. I understand. A little time away from hubbs is always good. Missing them only makes us love and appreciate them more when they return!

No... we do not want any broken bones from the wood adventure!!!

And you'll make it through ... just turn all the TV's up loud so you dont hear any bumps in the night!
