On Tuesday, Mike left for what will be a four week trip. He arrived safely in Argentina on Wednesday morning (flying first class) and will be working there this week before heading to Brazil. The overseas portion of his trip will be two weeks...unfortunately, he'll then be flying directly to Texas, where he'll be working on an installation project for two more weeks.
I believe this will be the longest time that he's been away since joining this project. I know that neither one of us, not to mention the kids, are looking forward to him being away so long. For me, it's four uninterrupted weeks of being a single mom. I'll be trying to find fun activities to do while he's away, but it will definitely be a challenge keeping the kids in line.
