The Longest Day of the Year
March 13, 2011 § 6 Comments
At midnight last night we set the clocks forward an hour. Three hours later we woke up so Hubby was ready for his cab to the airport.
I haven’t slept since and I’m well passed exhausted. Hubby has just arrived safely in Victoria, B.C. (3000 miles away) and I’m ready for bed even though it’s only 4:00 pm.
At the last minute the federal gov’t (Hubby’s employer), in its infinite wisdom, decided that they needed Hubby twice as long as they thought and he’ll be gone ten days instead of the original five. *sigh*
I’m disappointed for sure but I’m keeping close to my heart how long Shady lived without her Lizard King (also taking into account just how far away he was) and I’m considering myself lucky.
As much as I already miss him and know that it will only get worse, I also know that ten days is but a drop in the bucket and it’ll be less than three after he gets home before I start wondering why I missed him in the first place.
Just kidding…sort of. 😉
So for now, after I’ve had a good night’s sleep anyway, I’m looking forward to this “just us girls” time with Daughter. We have no plans aside from the cooking class Daughter has signed up for so it’s pretty much a free for all.
Don’t sweat it MrCrow – we know how to have a good time without breaking the bank. 😉
