Life is slowly going back to normal, whatever that may be. Bob (formerly Junior...long story) has gone two days without breaking down, though tonight I have no idea where he is. He said he needed time to himself, so he went for a drive. Since we are not a cell phone family, I have no way of getting in touch with him, so I am sitting here waiting for him to come home. I think this time alone will help him to clear his head.
The two of us went and had a nice afternoon date today, which consisted of eating at a restaurant where they serve you at a table instead of a buffet line. It's hard to go to place like this with the kids because they are expensive. It cost us $45 for the two of us to share an appetizer sampler plate and each get a meal. I had two mini burgers and a trip to the salad bar, which was yummo! I ended up bringing home most of my burgers and fries, as well as the appetizers. I ate all the salad though. They had the best pumpernickel croutons, too. Spending that much was kind of wasteful, but it was nice to sit and talk with my husband without the kids. We never get to do that.
I will be happy when he finally goes back to work next week. I think it will be good for him to get back to his normal routine. We are going to therapy again on Tuesday. Elizabeth thinks going every week for a little while will help Bob sort through all his feelings, and I agree. I'm hoping he can move through the grief process and come out the other side in tact.
So, I guess it's time to talk about me. You all know how much I love to do that, lol! I have been doing the wii fit pretty regularly, though this past week was rough with Bob here all the time. He hates when I do it...he thinks the music is annoying. I haven't weighed myself, though, to see if I've lost any weight. I need to do that without the kids around, so maybe one day next week I will. They are predicting snow again Sunday night, so they may be home again on Monday. Anyway, I am loving the games on the wii fit, and am finding myself playing for an hour before I know it. I love exercise programs like that, where I don't even realize I am exercising, even though there is sweat dripping down my back. I have a feeling that this is the thing I have been looking for to get me back to losing weight.
Well, Bob just came in, so let me get off of here. Night.
