My husband left for a work trip in Alabama yesterday. It's our first time being apart since we got married! He will only be gone for 2 nights but it seems like forever! I don't know how people with spouses who travel for work or are in the military do it! Just this brief period of time has made me miss him and appreciate him so much. I think I even missed him stealing the covers last night and talking in his sleep. It's the little things that I find comfort in knowing he's right there.
It usually drives me crazy how much of a morning person he is. I'd love to snooze my alarm 4-5 times and stay cozy and in bed for as long as possible. He likes to jump up immediately and get his day started. Since he is up and about he usually takes care of the pups and gets ready for work before me so I have the bathroom to myself once I pull myself from bed. I missed this little routine this morning but especially missed his bubbly self to start out my day. He's usually so chipper and makes me laugh at least once before we leave for work. It's the little things he does that makes me laugh.
Our nightly routine is to cook dinner together with the music on and sometimes dance around, cuddle up on the couch, watch our shows, and talk about life. My night tonight consisted of me chasing after our puppy in our muddy backyard in the rain because she was having way too much fun and refused to come in when I called. Then I spent a couple hundred $ on hotel rooms for the weddings we have this year... 6 so far! I ended these shenanigans with dinner...baked beans and a coke. Needless to say, it's time for my guy to get back home! It's the little moments we share together that I will always cherish.
It's the little things...
