Seven days ago Parker left for his longest vacation away from me ever. It has been seven days and I won't see him again until Monday evening. It is crazy how I feel like I am only half here. I am not sad and lonely like I would typically be when he is out of town because I have been with mr for the entire time. But I haven't seen my him smile or make him laugh or have a conversation with him in seven days. He is a pain to talk to on the phone most of the time and my dad always puts him on speaker phone so then I hear everyone and they are always talking on top of each other and it is super annoying. *deep sigh* I miss the little booger. His 10 day vacation is a week at Grandma's and Grandpa's sandwiched by two different motorcycle races in two different states. I know that he is having more fun on his vacation than he would be in day camp. I know he is getting better sleep and a chance to not wake up so early. I know that it is so important that he spends time like this with my dad because he is learning so much about who he is.....but I'm being selfish right now. I want him here with me. I want a hug from my favorite.
His big 6 birthday is coming up in the next 10 days. I have only heard back from 3 people, I hope more show up than that...I have the cake figured out (kind of) and now it is down to the gifts. This year's birthday planning has been the hardest I have done. I typically have most of the details figured out atleast a month before hand. It completely snuck up on me this year. There is so much going on in my life that my days and months just blend together.
But anyway.....seven days. *deep sigh*
(sorry Ms. Melaina that I didn't participate in Feminist Friday again this week.....I couldn't concentrate)
