Well, Dan is gone for a month again. It shouldn't be too bad, though, because he is close enough he can come home on weekends, and I made him promise that he would. I might have sounded a little desperate because before he left he kept asking me if I was going to be alright. Of course I'm going to be alright...I just like it better when he's here, that's why I married him. Anyway, this time around I'm hoping that the kids and I will do some fun kid activities. I haven't figured out what yet, but I'm sure I'll blog about it if I do anything. Actually, my main concern is feeding my children dinner. I realize this sounds awful. Trust me, I do. The only reason I cook at all is for Dan, and since he's not here, I have a hard time motivating myself to make a dinner that no one but me will eat anyway. Kember is getting better at eating dinner, I will give her that. However, Caden doesn't touch anything. It's a wee bit frustrating. I'm sure if I were creative I could think of something dinnerish that he would find fun to eat...but it's just too tempting to say, "Hey, he'll eat PB & honey" Oh, don't worry, I do add veggies. He ate his peas tonight...nothing else, but at least he is getting the green stuff.
I mentioned in my last post that Caden gave goodnight kisses that encompass the forehead, both cheeks, my nose and chin. Apparently he has decided to also add both ears and the neck. I love it...and then Kember runs up and gives me such a big hug I fall over. It's awesome.
On a random note: I listened to most of Pres. Obama's inagural speech today. I would have liked to have heard the whole thing, but I didn't know it was on. This is the first time I've ever heard him speak. Yes, I know that is pathetic. Yes, I know I should be more aware and more informed. I will say this though, I was impressed by what I heard. I hope he can do what he said in the speech, and I wish him the best of luck.
It also got me thinking about who ever wrote the speech. I suppose because that was my major, but boy, you got to give the person kudo's. It's one thing to write a speech for yourself, but it's entirely different to write a speech for someone else...especially a speech this important. The President did a great job at delivery too. Sigh...I miss my major.
