Nancy is off to Dallas to visit Sephora’s call center there.  She’ll be gone for 12 days.  And today is her birthday.  When she arrived at her hotel she went out for dinner at Denny’s.  It was the only place open.  They give you a free Grand Slam on your birthday, she ordered the chicken.  Good for you , honey!

I am missing my wife very much. I am already feeling the incompleteness already closing in.  And Spencer and Eva, I feel like they are missing their mom.  Earlier tonight Eva kept pointing upstairs and whimpering a bit.   She’s used to her mom being home at a certain time.  They need their mom’s kind heart and soft words.  I’m all about getting them consistent in a firm way.  This is only the tip of a very big iceberg to the reasons why it is important to have parents for children.  I’ve been a stay at home dad for just about three years now I can say that no matter how one feels prepared to be a single parent you’re always going to be missing something.  I applaud those who are single parents, it’s got to be one of the hardest jobs to have.

I can’t wait for Nancy to come home.
