Remember this? My post about Richard’s traveling days being mostly finished?
It was too good to be true.
It turns out he does a good job. It turns out that when you do a good job, clients want you on their job. It turns out a big business acquisition in Spokane necessitates Richard’s presence there for the next few weeks.
I told Richard, “This is all very flattering, the way they are fighting for you.”
But it turns out that flattery is a poor compensation for missing a husband and father.
It also turns out that I’ve been aware of a family missing their dad in a much more painful way so I’m officially done complaining.
In fact, I’m here to express gratitude for modern techonology.
It turns out that you can talk face to face via webcams and Skype. I know we are probably the last ones to use this method of communication, but we did it for the first time last night and had a great time. The kids loved it, therefore Mom and Dad loved it.
And lastly, it turns out that the silver lining of this situation is that I’ll be booking a flight (with Richard’s frequent flyer miles) to Florida soon.
