Being away stinks!

By Pat

It is a family site, so lets just say it really stinks! I'm in St Louis and missed Ryan's birthday (we did see the Lone Ranger together before I left, which was hilarious) and I miss Owen's b day in October and I already feel like an absent dad and I've only been away for 3 days. It was tough when I talked to Ryan on his actually b day, hearing all the activity in the background, I wanted to be right there enjoying it and seeing that smile on his face. When I saw them before I left they were acting a bit distant, not knowing what to do or say. I felt the same way. I was really surprised with my 5 year old, with no prompting he told me he was going to send me a hershey bar in the mail. I nearly fell apart right there. 32 days to go...
