Well, I sit here at home today by myself as Keith has left on his first trip for his new position today. He’ll only be gone until Thursday, in other words five days and four nights. When you put it into overall perspective, it’s really not that long considering he is in the Army and he could be being deployed instead and gone for a year or two. But still, I hate it when he has to leave.
I’m not one of those wives who actually looks forward to their husbands leaving for a few days or if he has been home on vacation days to where you just can’t wait for him to go back to work. Personally, I love it when my husband has time off. I like having him home.
It’s not that we even do all that much stuff when he is home. However, we are together and to me that’s all that really matters. We are either watching one of our TV shows we like to watch or we’re watching a Blu-Ray/DVD from our huge collection of movies. Or he is playing Bang-Bang Shoot-um Up (In other words: Modern Warfare 2: Call of Duty) as he likes to call it while I’m watching one of my shows or playing on my computer. Or we might both just be sitting in bed reading a book. So it’s not really about doing something together as much as it’s just being together spending time with one another.
It seems like most people today if they’ve been married for any length of time that’s just not the case. To me it’s kind of amazing that after sixteen years of marriage we both feel the same way about each other. No, we’re not delusional about each other as we can still drive each other nuts, but overall, we love each other more than we could’ve ever imagined possible.
I can truly say without hesitation that Keith is the love of my life. The other thing I like to say is that even though there isn’t one person on this earth that is perfect, Keith and I are perfect for each other.
I guess you could say I’m one lucky woman to have found the man of my dreams.
