Week without Joe :(

Joe has been gone since Friday morning. He flew out to Ohio to help his brother move out to Idaho. We are excited to have them be a lot closer. They should be home late tonight, which is good. I do not like being a single mom. We have been very busy this week. We have had Joe's Dad and family out to visit from Minnesota. They have helped me with the kids while Joe has been gone. We have had a lot of fun with them. We went to a family reunion on Sunday, the kids had a lot of fun with cousins. It was fun to see family that we haven't seen in a year.

I have been doing Joe's paper route since Saturday. Before when I have done the papers it has taken about 2 hours to do all the papers. Now I can do the same amount of papers in 1 hour and 10 minutes. I jogged up to each house and back to the van. Then getting in and out of the van, I have to step up and down. It does feel good to be doing it, but I do not like waking up that early to do them. I will be glad when Joe is back and doing them. It makes me very grateful for my husband and how hard he works for us. This is the first time that he has been gone away from the kids more than a day or two. I am very, very grateful for my family members for helping me out this week.

On another subject: It is way too hot. I am sure looking forward to fall and winter. It has been in the 100's all week. It is so hard to get cooled off and to get enough water in. We need some rain badly. Hopefully it cools off soon, the heat is so draining.

Here is to everyone, hope you can stay cool during the hot summer days.

Yeah I am glad that Joe is back. I agree it has been way too hot. I am ready for fall, not so sure about winter but fall for sure.

Oh, I know what you mean about being hot - we've been above 100 all week too. Next week's expected high of 93 seems so much cooler in comparison!

I can't believe how active you are getting :) Keep it up...I need to follow your example. Since I quit my courier job, I am not very active at all, and my body shows it! Glad Joe made it back home OK. I am sure the kids missed him alot.
