And So the Travel Begins Again.

Shawn has been in his new job for about 4 months now.  His last job kept him away to the point that we saw him 2-3 days a week.  Usually on the weekend and maybe one day during the week, although he missed a lot of fun weekend things too.  I knew when he took the job there would be travel, but I didn't realize how much there would be.  This job seemed like a saving grace because they said, while there would be travel, there would be so much less.  This so far has been a promise well kept, since today is his first overnight trip, and he'll be back tomorrow.  This, however, isn't so easy for the kids who seem to still suffer PTSD from his last job.

Today, we're just going to do what we can to get them through this, so they can see that it isn't like last time. As I type this, the kids are getting ready to go to Laugh Out Loud so they can run around and burn off some energy.  I'm thinking about picking up a movie this evening and debating whether to stick to the menu plan or make a kids favorite meal.  Maybe we'll even do frozen pizza... who knows.
