My cousin Tyson came and picked up my kids. He is flying them back to Nebraska with 2 of my cousins. My twins are spending the entire weekend with their birth mom and family. It’s been a while since I took them back to Nebraska to see family so it was time. I don’t want to go because I am not allowed to spend time with the kids and the birth mom whenever she feels uncomfortable. She said this visit she wanted just them, not me. I’m fine with it. She deserves time with them whenever it works out for our schedule. She’s been doing really well in school and feels this weekend is a good break. We try to do this twice a year. She feels like that won’t make her feel bad, won’t bring up any doubts she may have had giving them up for adoption. She’s in their life but not a monthly thing. I’m fine with it. We agreed on an open adoption. My Sweet Pea does not have an open adoption so she will not be afforded the same quality time. It makes me sad but I understand. Peace went with Sarah, Heather, and Brandi for the weekend. I’m having my kitchen counters replaced and it’s just easier with the kids out of here. I’m also having the new cabinet doors installed and the new flooring in the kitchen put in. They are going to destroy my house and clean it all up by Sunday at 5….or else!
I can’t wait to see it all finished. It’s been a design frustration for a few weeks. The designer and I finally agreed and off we go.
I needed a break. We are back into full school mode, hanging with my kids all of the time. I think it’s healthy for me to have 2 or 3 weekends in a year without them. It refreshes me. No, I do not have a bunch of dates lined up. I’m not dating. I don’t want to. My ex-wife has been trying to talk to me. She’s blocked. I’m good with just being alone and being with my babies. I really want to enjoy these years with them. It all goes by so fast.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. I know I will! Love you guys!
