Mike the 'mannie'

Well, I'm sort of a single lady for a while. Mike's in Paradise, CA helping his sister out for the next 6-8 weeks. So I'm on my own. Not sure how much I like it, but I'll get through it. It's kind of funny, it the 10+ years that we have lived together until this Sunday, I have only slept AT HOME by myself two nights. I used to leave Mike at home by himself all the time, but he never really left me, so this is a little strange.

A little background: I was in California June 4th - 7th to give out the Davey Davis Outstanding Athlete Award (more on that in another post) and I went and spent the night with Mike's sister. She was saying how she really needed to have surgery but didn't know how or when they could do it because she would have to stay off her feet for 8 weeks. She's got two adorable little boys, 18 months and 4 years old, and her husband works out of town so she's got her hands full. It got me thinking, Mike wasn't doing anything this summer, he was supposed to get a job, but had successfully put that off, he could just come down and help her out.

I got home on the 7th and by the 10th of June, it was all set, Mike flew down on Sunday, Stef's surgery is tomorrow, and I'm home by myself...

All in all I think its a good thing. Mike gets to spend some time with our nephews, and he's doing a great thing helping out his sister. Of course I miss him! A lot!! And it is really strange staying at the house by myself. I'll get used to it, I know I will.

I'm trying to figure out ways to keep myself busy. Mike and I tend to be homebodies, so this is a good chance for me to push myself to get out of the house and keep busy. Tonight, in fact, I am attending a miniature golf, social deal with a young professionals group. Finger's crossed we don't get rained out!

Luckily I've got some good friends and family up here too, so they'll keep me busy as well... now someone just needs to come over and take out my trash.
