I wish it were I that is on travel but I'm home keeping a watchful eye on the home front. My husband on the other hand is enjoying all points of direction. He has hit all weather extremes in the process. We did have a sighting of him over the weekend. He was home for a day and a half only to fly out in the early morning hours on Monday. Most importantly, he made it home for the Super Bowl and we enjoyed being together at our dear friends annual party.
For the most part I don't mind his traveling. During the week I'm busy with daily routines, work, household tasks and such. Truth be told, I sometimes even enjoy it. I think you need to be a military wife to really understand that thought process. We (as in spouses) are in some ways trained to be very independent individuals so that when we are alone, we function and prospered rather than shrivel up and become non~existent. I don't know how better to explain this, it's come after many years of being a single married gal ~ how's that for confusing?
Since my husband has been gone I've rearranged the furniture ( this something I always seem to do when he is gone and never when he is home. He comments on this often and has become an on going joke between us), purchased paint to repaint the half bath, made girlie dinners, chatted with a few girlfriends on the phone, watched a movie I wanted to watch, taken a long hot bath, and have been in bed by 9:30 so that I can snuggle in with a good book. There are some benefits to husband's traveling ~ it's all about perspective!
My husband gave me the tulips during his visit. They are a sneek peek into spring. A lovely thought as it is currently snowing outside!
