I Miss My Wife

She has only been gone for four days.  Sure, she's flying in tonight from her whirlwind gallivant across the western United States, but I still miss her terribly.

I miss her mere presence in the evening when it's just her and I.  I miss her smile and her non-cell phone garbled laughter.  I miss the feeling I get when she sits beside me on the couch.  I missed watching America's Got Talent and the Bachelorette on Monday night while irritating her, flipping back to the Twins game every few minutes.  I miss her cooking.  I cannot see her eyes roll back into her head at everything I say while talking to her on the phone - not to mention Verizon lies when they say you get good service everywhere.

I just miss my wife.

I hope I don't crush her at the airport when I give her a "welcome back" hug and a passionate kiss.

I'll catch y'all later while I make lunch for the kiddos and call the florist.

  1. Awwww, it's so hard to be away from someone who you aren't quite whole without. But getting back together again is pretty awesome too!

  2. My Hubby was just gone fishing in Canada for for 11 days. No cell service, no internet, no nothing. It's so weird how you get used to a person, and dont even realize how much you love them until they're gone! I'm glad you get your wife back today :)

    1. Okay. I'll quit whining. 11 days!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!
