I left my cozy little home this morning to come and spend a couple of days with my family before the Hubster comes to spend Christmas. He can never spend more than a day or two here because he is allergic to cats and my parents have a very active one. It’s hard because I love spending time with my family and I always feel that such a quick trip is never adequate. So I usually come a couple of days in advance and he comes up later. However I always find those days in between unbearably long. It’s incredible how much I miss him when he’s not with me. :(
Because it’s just the two of us in our little city way out in the sticks, I’ve become very accustomed to having him around all the time. And even though I’ve only really been away a few hours, it’s odd not having him there to talk to when I think of something funny, or to steal random kisses or hugs. I guess every time we’re apart it reopens my eyes to how much I love him and appreciate having him there in my life. And how I hope that there’ll never be a time when he won’t be.
I don’t think I’ve ever actually written an entry solely about my husband… mind you, if I got started I’d probably write a book. I don’t know how often he reads this– I’ve seen him peeking on it from time to time. I’ve been trying to do something special for him for Christmas… trying to dust off an old talent and see what I can come up with. We’ve been trying to cut back on our spending and actually begin living like students, so I thought something personalized and homemade (with love) might be something different. Anyway, I’ll let you know how it turns out.
I think it’s nighttime that makes me miss him most though… I hate waking up in the middle of the night and him not being there. Dream sweet my love… I’m thinking about you.
