Please pray for me...

Reinforcements have left the building. My husband is gone for 5 days and I have two boys...4 and 2. Need I say more?

Steve and Mike are driving Greg's truck from here to Phoenix (Greg and Julia recently moved from right down the street from us *sniff sniff* to Phoenix, AZ and were not able to take their truck with them on the moving trip). Greg is joining them to drive on another 7 hours to Zion National Park where they will camp for 3 days and nights. Then they will drive back to Phoenix on Tuesday in time to catch a flight back to Dallas, arriving home about 10pm that night. Lucky for me, Mike's girlfriend Janessa volunteered to pick them up at the airport, so I don't have to haul the boys over there late at night. Score.

To top all this off, Steve took the book with him that I am right in the middle of and was immensely enjoying! He WAS reading it first, I must admit, and he has been looking forward to having the time to finish it, but I was really into this book. Basically, I was neglecting most things that were not absolutely necessary in order to read this book for the past two days. Check it out. It just might do a number on you...I will say more about it in a later post after my husband gets back and I can finish it!

You are a single mom for the next few days... and I am sure you will be busy, but lets talk soon!

You know who else was talking about that same book? Cinders! She has read it already.

OOooh good luck! I've done it with four for 3 or 4 days so I know you can do it!! LOL. I'm so jealous of Steve though - I would LOOOVE to go to Zion.

Thanks for your blog comment BTW - it made me feels so much better to know I have a someone out there who understands my pain. HAHAHAHAHAHA. And family picture? I have our last attempt on the wall. It's not pretty. HAHAHAHA.

Oh, good to know on the book. I've seen that book in the store and wondered about it. Hope the time passes quickly until Steve returns! It's always nice to say, "Yes, you can go" and then it's hard and exhausting playing single parent!

That's so funny because my mom read this book and loved it, and then gave it to my wife Wendy to read, and she can't put it down either. Guess I'll have to read it too.

Oh yeah, by the way, I'm a friend of Kristy and Russell DePriest...I was Russell's roommate for one year at Hendrix College In AR.

I forgot to add that we too live in TX, Galveston to be exact.
