Eric is out of town. He left Sunday afternoon and will be back on Friday afternoon. He went to Phoenix for a training class at his company’s headquarters. Yesterday morning it was so sad. Alex went running out of his bedroom after I got him dressed and headed into our bedroom. Then he stopped and looked around in confusion. Then he looked at me with this pitiful “what’s going on here” look. It was obvious he was expecting to find Daddy getting ready for work (like normal) and instead found an empty room. I explained to him that Daddy wasn’t home, but I don’t know if he really understood. This morning I carried him out of the room and didn’t give him a chance to go looking for Daddy.
