How Can I Miss You If You Won’t Go Away?

Does anyone else get super excited when their husbands go back to work?  After a long vacation, are you just glad to see him go?  I am not afraid to admit that I am!

As you probably know, J has been out of work for quite some time with his knee injury.  The doctor suggested he stay out until he was seen by a specialist.  He said “Injured or not, sitting around doesn’t pay the bills,” so yesterday he decided to give it a shot and get back to work.  Bless his heart.  He’s so hard headed but…


Now don’t get me wrong.  I love that man more than anything but he sure knows how to drive a woman crazy!  Being a stay at home mom, I often find myself needing someone to talk to.  I am totally good for another 5 years!

I’m probably gonna get some crap about “there are women who go a very long time without seeing their husbands and they’d be lucky to have him home for a longer period of time.”  I most certainly would be missing him like crazy if we were in that situation.  Every family is different and every marriage doesn’t work the same way.  Be glad of that.  That would be weird.

J’s job allows him to be home with me during the colder months 3-4 days every week.  I love our time together and I do miss him when he’s back at work.  I rarely see him during the summer due to his schedule so I try to take advantage of the time we have together.

Not a month though.  Never a month ever again.

Dating: “aww. i love you. i can’t wait until we are able to spend every hour of every day together.”

Marriage: “were we high the entire time we were dating?”

This is my marriage.  All out honesty.  We are crazy about each other and we make each other crazy.  We wouldn’t have it any other way.
