Missing you

For those of you who don't know, my wonderful hubby has to go away from home every four to six weeks, for a week at a time, for his job. I HATE it. People tell me, whoo hoo, time for a party! But for me it isn't a time to celebrate. I do try my best to think positivly about it, but it is hard. I enjoy having him around, the adult company. When you have a toddler around you all day you get stuck it that toddler mentality, and when hubby comes home from work it pulls you out for a bit. However since I am sad and missing him quite a bit, I thought I would do a positives list and see if that lifts me up a bit.

1. I get the bed to myself
2. I don't have to cook full meals
3. I can go wherever I want without checking first
4. Gracie and I have lots of girl time
5. I have the computer all to myself, don't have to share.
6. I don't have to pick up after him
7. I don't have to clean discusting tupperware
8. I don't have to have anything done before he gets home

I really can't think of anymore at the moment!! It usually goes pretty quick and then he will be home again. I can't wait!!

I feel your pain more than you know. My hubby travels a bunch, not as much as he used to, but quite a bit.

I'm home with three small children ages 6 and under... You learn a lot while you battle by yourself, but it's so hard because I miss him just like you miss yours.

My story

Welcome to my blessed life!! Meet myself, a 32 year old stay at home momma. Meet hubby, who I have been married to for 14 years. We got married right out of high school, and while there have been many hardships, my husband is my best friend, and I wouldn't change a thing. We are living life with a 6 year old Grade oner, Gracie and 3 year old toddler, Alysha, which has its challenges, but we love every minute of it. God has blessed us with everything we need as well as tonnes of great friends and family.
