Today, Tricia and Gwyneth will be traveling with Tricia's family to NJ for several days. I'll be alone with the dog and cat. I'm already very sad thinking about it...the more Gwyneth grows, the less I want to be away from her and Tricia.

But, such is life, and I certainly have enough to keep me busy while they're gone, including work, The CALL and hopefully finishing a certain video that has taken way too long to, if you don't hear much from me over the next few days, it hopefully means I'm being productive...

Nate I hope your lovely ladies have a fabulous time. Missing our families when they are away is hard to be sure. Hopefully the next days will be a break of sorts for you and you can get all the stuff done you desire.

Don't be alone! Come to work. Then come over for dinner tonight.

I love your Dad's invitation up there! You will miss your girls but the reunion when they get back will be so sweet. Besides, Meka and Ralphie need you:) Take care Nate.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

I hope they make it back in time for Valentine's Day!

Hope the time passes fast. :)

I have to go to a wedding in May and I have to leave my husband and little girl for fours days. I do not know how I am going to do it. I wish you luck.

I am so excited for all of you!

Tricia must be absolutely thrilled to be getting away.

One of the worst things about being sick is being so limited in the things you can do and places you can go.

Work, home, and doctors' offices/hospitals/tests/procedures are about it for me these days. There is just no time or energy for much else...not to mention all of the 'normal people' germs out there that would just be something little for them, but could be huge and/or deadly for us.

People don't quite get that when you're really sick, you just can't leave your medical team and go have fun in your own town, much less somewhere else far away.

I always say that I feel like running away, but that wouldn't solve anything since my health issues would go with me. I can't very well run away from myself, as much as I would love to at times.

A year ago, a trip with family for fun probably seemed so far out of reach for both of your girls.

As much as I know you'll miss them, it'll be a good break for you too. Being the caregiver can be exhausting, and it's always nice to be able to miss makes the reunion that much sweeter.

I hope you enjoy your time to yourself, and that your girls enjoy their trip to NJ!

I am sure you will miss the girls, but absence makes the heart grow fonder. I bet they will miss you too.

I know what you mean! Someone once offered to take care of my little guy while I did my errands. Though I know it would be much faster, I couldn't bear the thought of going without my little companion!
You get stuck on them so fast!
