Withdrawals from the Web

Friday morning Kerry left for Texas leaving the boys, Bailey and I here in Florida. I had no problems with that until he said he was taking the wireless card with him. It's amazing how fast one becomes accustomed to such things. The idea of going a day without checking emails or blogs is no big deal, but four whole days is an entirely different story. The hotel he was staying at didn't have wireless and he needed it for work purposes. That trumps leisure time on the internet when the boys are sleeping at night or playing nicely together.

The boys and I did fine with Kerry gone. We took time to go the the Wildlife Animal Refuge and spent some time swimming. I even dragged them shopping for clothes and furniture. Saturday night we went to church. I'm so glad to be going back to church on Saturday nights. It's going to allow us to use Sundays as a school day and then take Fridays off when Kerry is home.

The boys are so glad to have Daddy back even though they haven't seen him yet. Kerry got in late last night and they were already asleep. He was also gone when they woke up this morning. They loved knowing that Daddy brought them something back from his trip and they have spent the way too early for me morning coloring. Levi has enjoyed walking around with his horse that Daddy brought back for him. They will be over the top excited when they see him after work.

Hi Stephanie,
I am embarrased to say that while I was searching for Midwife info for you, I lost your email address. I left a message on your husband's answering machine @ CF- but now I see that he is out of town.
I am not having any luck finding the person who had mentioned a good gyn/midwife to me previously. In my search, I was given the name of Lori Nelson - but I can't seem to locate any phone numbers for her.
I checked for a list of Doulas in PBC- there are many listed online. I don't know any to recommend. Also, I hear good things (as far as gyn. visits) for Ob/Gyn Specialists of the Palm Beaches.
Again, so sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you !
