Sam has been traveling a lot with Bell Helicopter. He spent two weeks in November, two weeks in December, and will spend three weeks this month in Piney Flats, Tennessee. He left on January 9th and won't be back until the 27th. The kids and I are getting used to the schedule and there are a few perks like less laundry and I don't need to make real dinners. We do really miss him and the kids fight over talking to him on the phone. This schedule will continue until June (or so we hope). I think it is a little ironic that he took this job to stay in Texas and now he is working in Tennessee.
