Since the kids have no ballgames this Friday for a change (only 3 more weekends to go until the season is OVER), we decided to go visit our favorite recently employed guy in Northwest Arkansas …
He’s completed 2 weeks of training now … and has quite a bit more to learn before he is actually working independently in his new position. He has a HUGE notebook of procedures to learn, which he will continue to study over the weekend. Daniel has learned his is a brand new position for his facility, so he is going to be sort of a guinea pig … or perhaps one could see him as a pioneer in his field.
Being here in Daniel’s little apartment is almost like a get-away for our family! Leaving behind the house and all that it reminds me needs to be done is somewhat like a vacation. Here in the apartment, we live quite simply with just he barest of essentials as far as kitchenware (not even a coffee maker since Daniel isn’t a coffee drinker) and only the clothes we need for a few days. Laundry is a cinch since there are just a few towels and sheet sets to wash.
And yet, with basic cable and internet service and a DVD player, the kids are entertained … and Annie-Belle is enjoying her Legos that she brought.
Drew’s bed for the weekend is the couch … while Annie-Belle sleeps on a “blow up”
mattress. MiMi has a portable crib which she barely fits into … but it works! It’s kind of like camping out.
MiMi has discovered her very own SPA-sauna in the bathroom …
Tomorrow we will be running some errands for Daniel and exploring the area some more. I feel bad that the Northeast is being hit so hard with this mega-blizzard … and we are expecting partially sunny skies with a high of 55 degrees.
Have a great weekend … and praying you are safe and warm if you are in the Northeast!
