Kelly

So on Monday Kellys work is sending him on a job. He is going to a site near Bethel Alaska. He will be there anywhere from 2 weeks to a month.

He won't be able to call from his cell phone because it won't get service there and where he will be they only have satelite phones so he will only be able to call home about every other day or so just to find out how we are.

This is kinda freaking me out though I hate not being able to reach him every day for one. I've gotten used to our almost daily talks on Skype when we can actually see each other when we talk. The other thing that freaks me out is where they are going is at a gold mine and he will have to be in it. That has me worried. Mines can be dangerous. The only good thing is he will be making a lot of extra money just before our time to come up there and afterward they will be sending him down to Juneau which is getting closer to Ketchikan which is were we will be living at this point when we go up. Okay that totally sounds like a run on sentance but I've got several things going on right now. I'm feeling a little anxious.

20 people had something to say:

I now have to go to mapquest and see where the end of the earth is.....

I hope you are able to be at peace with the non communication level.

Can you imagine what it was like when Dog Sleds ruled the day???

You won't be able to skype at all?? Bummer! I'm sure he'll be alright sweetie.

Melanie said...

Oh Terri, I know this will be so difficult for you. I will keep you and Kelly in my prayers. There has been so much done to improve the safety of mines, so I know you will be worried- but try not to worry too much. I really hope the time just flies by for you both.

Beccy said...

Poor you, it must be very worrying especially as contact will be sporadic. Looking on the bright side, you're getting closer to seeing him again.

Hey Terri, Don't go worrying yourself as it will only make Kelly feel bad too.

Remember the mines are much safer now and both my dad and grandad and uncles too went down the mines - no mishaps (apart from the old man falling asleep - but that's another story).

You have to be strong and give Kelly the support he needs too at this time and the weeks are flying so fast (my dementia cannot keep up).

So keep thinking positive thoughts.

I feel for you!

My husband travels TONS - so I know how it is being a single parent for days on end - but not having contact with my husband at the end of the day? Yikes.

Hang in there!!! I hope the time goes by quickly.

Debbie said...

It's difficult to be out of touch. I'm glad that you can at least talk every couple of days.

Yes. Do hang in there. :)

Steffi said...

Yes,Terri I can understand you and feel with you!It´s a very difficult situation for you!I hope you have postive thoughts because soon you can move to Alaska and that´s good!Have a nice weekend!

Janice said...

Hang in there, Terri! I know what it's like being away from John and not being able to talk or Skype him can make it even harder. But didn't have kids then, so I am sure it will be even harder for you. But try to stay positive and hopefully the days will go by quicker than you expect.

Wow, how cool is that that you're going to Alaska!!!

Susie PSU said...

Just checking in on you. You'll be ok - time goes on one day at a time.

Beckie said...

Wow, I see why you are anxious.

I am sending positive thoughts and vibes your way!

Melanie said...

You ROCK!!
Come and get your button!

hi terri, i understand your feelings. the good thing is you'll be able to talk to kelly every other day. you and the children have lots of fun together so you can share with kelly when you all talk to him. God allows that which He knows you can bear. the separation, though hard, will strengthen you and your family even more. don't lose your focus. all will be fine. i'll keep you in my prayers. hugs to you and your family.

frannie said...

I know this is tough- but look how well you've done so far. Just a little bit longer and you will be together again

you can do it!

Stacy said...

Hang in there! Time will go by fast, the kiddos will keep you busy. At least you will be able to talk to him !

Kila said...

Every other day is still good. I hardly talk to my DH that often!

Good Luck to Kelly! He'll be OK!

Scribbit said...

I'm thinking of getting Skype myself.

At least the time is ticking away and the days apart are limited. Thinking of you . . .

Janice said...

BTW, TAG, you're IT! (see my blog)

Wendy said...

I know you are worried, but look at how everything just keeps falling into place for you! God has his plans, and He knows whats happening. Don't you worry! (Easy for me to say!) Keep your chin up momma! You will be seeing him soon! Yeah!!!

Amy W said...

I will be thinking about you!
