It's been a while since my husband had to go away for any work travel and he hasn't gone to visit friends this year...but when he's away I like to take the time for the me things I don't get done when he's around. If there's extra cleaning too I like to get that done since he's sensitive to some chemicals. I let myself go out to eat at new places that he wouldn't try! I stay up late and chat with friends online. I don't allow myself to get lonely
AW, it's hard for me too... Last time he went away it was for two weeks, but when I finally saw him at the airport, I started shaking and crying (I NEVER cry!) and could not let him go. This time is only for a week, so that's good. And hopefully we never have to be apart again.
Lamb, you've got some great ideas! I'm going to get some primer and paint, and paint all our inside doors while he's away. That will likely take two evenings, and I'll go out for coffee with me best friend one evening. Then it will be payday, and I think I'll go to the Value Village and see if I can't find some pretty new blouse to wear when I pick him up...and I'll do some beauty pampering - not that anything will help at this point. I'm beyond help LOL! And then my mom will be coming to town. Oh, and some time in all that I have to go shopping for my son's birthday gift and make him a cake.
I'll make sure I stay busy...and at work I will be preparing for the new role I am anticipating before long. Hopefully this week will go by fast, but even more than that, hopefully this week will be very successful for IDay. He's got a huge week in front of him!
Well, our week is up. My husby is on his way home! I will be heading out in about 6 hours to get him - and his flight arrives in 8 hours - the drive down there is an hour and a half. Man, I can't wait to see him!
On a sadder note and what is on my mind is that I never got the painting done. But that's okay... maybe we can work on it over the weekend or Labour Day. My man is coming home! And it's son's birthday on Tuesday, but since mom will be here, we will celebrate on Monday instead.
Now I spent a couple of hours cleaning house.... can't wait to see my man! :flirt:
Besides the normal chores and things, we watched The American President on Saturday afternoon. The significance being that it used to be on what seemed like every weekend years ago, and my wife and I would always watch it. So, we watched it for old times sake.
Saturday night was movie night. We had four homemade pizzas and watched Into the Woods. Collectively we agreed to never watch it again.
Sunday was church and Sunday evening was Small Group. So a good weekend all around.
