I'm So Glad When Daddy Comes Home

Tonight we are FINISHED with this whole traveling-back-and-forth-Eric's-not-home thing!

I'm so done with it. I'm ready to have my husband back.
I miss him. I miss talking with him at night before drifting off to sleep. I miss leaving my house for a few minutes by myself to go on a walk. I miss the fact that he was the one to kill all the HUGE spiders we keep finding in our basement.

So what has gotten me through these last 2 months?

*The avoidance of packing (I'm definitely pretty talented in this area)

*Picnics at Thanksgiving Point reading The Wizard of Oz under a tree, discovering hidden bird houses, and sneaking up on cute bunny rabbits

*Exercising at the good ol' rec center

*Baking (cookies, cinnamon rolls, cake--no wonder I haven't lost any weight)

*Listening to the soundtrack from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (and dancing along, of course)

*BBQing and Birthday partying with my neighbors and hanging out with friends

*Playing with popsicle sticks and with the boxes I should be packing

*Collecting eggs from the chickens

*Reading from the new scriptures Eric gave me for my birthday (not Laura Allen anymore, Laura Allred) A very romantic gift I believe.

*My cell phone and my free verizon-to-verizon minutes so I can call Eric all I want

I really will be "Glad as I can be!" to have Eric home. I LOVE that man so very much. He makes me smile each day. And he's a fabulous daddy!

Awww. I'm so sorry you've been without Eric, Losie. :(
I'm glad you survived and that it's over.

And that you are coming to see me soon!

Cute pictures and video by the way. The one of them reading together should be framed. :)

I am so glad you can all be together again. Not so glad that you will all be together in another state. We'll come visit soon!
