When the hubby is away the wives will play
My husband is out of town for the weekend helping out with the Hunger Walk 2009 in Tucson. When I found out he was going out of town I had made a long to do list of project that I needed to finish. I always think I am going to have fun without him. And although, I have the whole house to myself, I still end up missing him. Just when I thought that I needed some time to myself, I find myself just wanting to be with him.
Isn't that a funny thing, for weeks at a time wanting time alone for yourself, but then when the moment comes wanting to be with the one you love. I guess there is truth to that saying "distance makes the heart grow fonder." And I know myself, I know that I need him here with me to be able to sleep. There is just something about an empty bed when he is away that makes me restless and sleepless. You would think that I would get a lot of work done, which tonight I did (finished a destination wedding gown an hour ago), but usually I watch T.V.
I think it's just amazing how independent I think I am when I am with him and when he is gone I can't bear to be without him. It's a weird thing, this marriage stuff. I've been at it for almost 6 years and I'm still learning characteristics I never knew I had and still learning things about my husbands past and present experiences.
