How long???

Today I took my 2 1/2 year old daughter to a mommy & me Music & Motion class.  It was AMAZING!!  I haven't done something like this in literally YEARS!  She had a BALL!  So did her little brother (and me).  

As a matter of fact, my youngest made a friend...

It was a great day...and it wore both of them out.  

We finally got signed up for benefits with the new company and these are honestly the best benefits AND the best price we have EVER had!  It was a HUGE weight lifted off of my shoulders when my husband told me were not only signed up but also told me how much it was going to cost us.  I was jumping up and down on the inside!!  I immediately made a dentist appointment for my oldest 2 boys.  We have recently started a chore/reward chart.  After 10 stars they get something out of the prize box (Dollar Store items), after 25 stars a movie (this weekend), and my oldest asked today if they could go to the dentist when they got 30 stars!!  Who asks that???  A 7 year old with 2 permanent teeth and at least 2 loose ones who hasn't been to the dentist in a year plus because we haven't had dental insurance, that's who!

This afternoon I went to put something in the garage.  When I came back inside, I closed the door to the garage behind me and my daughter came RUNNING and HOLLERING for her Daddy...
"Daddy, Daddy, Daddy"  
I felt so bad that #1 - it was just me 
#2 - that it wasn't her daddy!

We are surviving - I *can* do this by myself!  I just don't *want* to.
How long until we are all back together again?  I know it hasn't even been a week yet...but when?  I know - again - all in God's time.  He has weaved this master plan for us and I wouldn't go back and change a thing...but I can't help but ask:

"How long til we are all back together again??"
