3 Weeks

I've been blog MIA for over a month now and am still busy as ever, but want to work on getting back into the blogging groove. We'll see how that goes.

I'm home, recently arriving back from a short trip to Nashville. Mr. McGoo and I drove to Nashville yesterday morning, arriving into the city just in time to catch the USA Women challenge Sweden in group play of the Women's World Cup. Unfortunately we didn't see the US women put Sweden away because they lost 2-1 and will have to face Brazil in the next round, but we did enjoy the time together.

After catching the game, we made our way to the Nashville airport and I "put Mr. McGoo on a plane" for London by way of Atlanta. He will be studying abroad for 3 weeks and this will be the longest time we've been apart since we began to date in April 2006.

4th of July time together
It was SUPER hard to say goodbye, but I'm looking forward to hearing about my hub's adventures in England and am thankful for how it is allowing him to graduate a full semester early. I'm going to miss him like crazy, though.

Thankfully we were blessed with extra time together on July 4th and were able to enjoy hanging out without the typical things a normal Monday brings. We also were able to spend time together all day Wednesday until he walked through security about 4:15pm.

After sending Mr. McGoo off, I attempted to compose myself and made my way to the middle sis and BIL's house in Nashville. It was great to spend some time with them and eat dinner together. I spent the night and made my way out of the house around 9am for a coffee date with a friend, which was followed by a lunch date with another favorite gal. After lunch I headed back home.

My goal these three weeks while Mr. McGoo is away is summed up into one word: PRODUCTIVE. Even though I know it's going to be a daily struggle having him away for so long, I am going to work to make the best of it and am confident that the Lord is sufficient during this time! I'll share more on the "productive" theme as I hopefully succeed on that daily.
