Time Away

Gosh, I haven't blogged in forever. Most because I was planning my trip away and now I am away. I am at an 8 day conference in Charlotte, NC where our corporate head quarters are.

So far, so good. We are 4 days in with 4 days to go. It was really hard to think of leaving the family. Janie was absolutely devistated even though we have been discussing this for a long time. I am not sure if this was a bad or good mommy thing to do but I wanted her to have something to look forward to every day while I am gone so I wrapped up a little gift and note each day for her. So far it seems to have helped. Everyone is doing fine. I have had an army of people to help me. MY mom came in for several day, my bro is covering one evening, and my aunt and uncle come in to finish off the week. Wow! My friend is transporting to and from gymnastics and on and on. Remember, this is only Mike's second week on the new job so the flexibility is not there yet.

The training has been intense, challenging, super time consuming and annoying at time. I am trying to keep an open mind and learn tons as this is truly to prepare me for my bosses job. The challenge is that we have new hires in our class! Stupid, stupid, stupid. Anyway, my days are consisting of training from 7:30a-6:30p and often followed by dinners and hours of homework. The good thing is that this craziness has made it easier not to miss my kids and hubby every hour of the day. Anyway, that is all for now from Charlotte...
