But as I write that, I realize how fortunate I am that my husband isn't overseas fighting for my freedom. There are several far worse jobs that I can think of with worse hours and little safety!
He's in the same city, and safe and at some point will sleep next to me at night.
I also realize that I am fortunate to have him at all.
I am blessed to have an incredible marriage and enjoy spending everyday with my best friend.
I am blessed to call myself a Shockley!
So, as sad as I am that his hours will be over 90 per week, I have a million things to be thankful for.
Please remind me of this if I get crabby! Don't let me complain!
Here are some pics from this week...Blake took two days off to spend with us before the poo starts!
Thursday we drove to Tulsa to see my family...got some sweet pictures of cousin Sutton loving on Sadie!
Blake took the boys to ride the Amtrak from Oklahoma City to Purcell.Boy did they have fun! It was only $16 for all 3 of them to ride for the 40 minute trip!
Not something we'd do everyday, but what a great treat for boys!
We love you Blake! You are the best daddy in the world and you make us feel so loved and important in your life. We love how you come home as soon as you possibly can to hang out with us. We are sad and will miss you deeply, but know that's only because you're so stinking fun to be with! See you in May!
