Brandon left for California on Thursday so Carson and I have been on our own. I really hated to see him go because I’ve been having a rough couple of days. Well, yesterday we went out to lunch at the Olive garden with some friends and then went to the bookstore to talk and let the kids play. It was fun and I needed to visit with friends. Today Carson has his first birthday party to attend. We went and bought a spiderman toy and had fun trying to wrap it together. Brandon will be home tomorrow and I can’t wait. I hate it when he goes out of town, I feel lost.
