Yesterday, K sad that AJ wanted to take her for up to Grandfather Mountain for the day. She more of a beach girl than a mountain girl, but I encouraged her to go and spend the day with him. Especially since his daughter was away with friends for the week.
Last night AJ came to pick up K for a sleepover and as there were leaving K told me that AJ wanted to invite the kids to the mountains for the day. It was OK by me and I told her so.
This morning, I woke up and fed the kids breakfast, got them dressed and made sure they had everything they needed for hiking. K and AJ showed up, loaded the kids into AJ's car and they drove away.
The kids all waved enthusiastically as they drove away. This is the first time that K and AJ have take all the kids away and left me alone at home.
Strangely I do not feel stressed about it... well... not THAT stressed. There is a twinge of sadness as this is another reminder that things are changing for me. In the long run, there will be lots of things that the kids will do with K and AJ that I won't be able to. And on the other side there are things that the kids will do with me and T that K will not go to.
In fact, for her some of that has already happened, sort of. There were several times last winter when K was away at a tournament that T and I took the kids out of pizza and then a movie. That is sort of the same thing, expect K was not left home alone, she was basically at work.
So rather than sit here win my loneliness, I think I will pack a bag and hear to the gym. Then I have a gift certificate for the Jockey store so I may buy myself some new underwear. Finally, when T is done with work, I will visit him and see if I can talk him into taking me out for a steak dinner.
