Birthdays and business travel don't mix

Lauren is 2! It is hard to believe sometimes, but Lauren is now older than Megan was when Lauren was born. (Did you follow that?) Unfortunately her birthday falls right in the middle if the UQ Capstone Event (the big "game" that I have to travel to Carlisle PA for every year) and I have now missed her 1st and 2nd birthdays. Of course I am the only one who is really bothered by this, she is too young to know the difference after all. Lauren's birthday party will be on Saturday at Mom and Dad's.

This trip is especially hard since it is the longest that I have ever been away from the girls. I am on day 11 of a 15 day trip. The girls are doing great of course... Dwayne stayed the night the first couple of nights (while Eric was at work) and my Mom stayed this weekend. We are so blessed to live near family and owe them so much for their help and support. Word from Mom is that Eric has even been keeping on top of the housework etc so at least I will not have to spend all day Sat cleaning upon my return.
