husband, left for 3 weeks of out of state training – and yes, I got watery-eyed
as I hugged too long before he left. we’ve never been apart so long and it
seems like each minute I’m noticing something great he does to make our home
better. so during that too-long hug in
the kitchen, and then in the living room, and then by the door :)…I
just imagined for a moment how wonderful it would be when he returned and that
brought a big smile.
and we’re making a
fun little paper chain to mark his return – yanno, since kiddos aren't as adept with the "passage of time" thing :). we'll take off a loop each evening at dinner to signal that the time is getting shorter.
2009 has been
here such a short time but the days have been steeped with so much meaning
already. I really don’t want to
derail any hopeful resolutions that go a little like this “I shall never let an
unhealthful morsel of food pass betwixt these lips” but in case you’re with me
in the ‘all things in moderation’ camp, check this out!! oh, bakerella…really? did you just climb into my subconscious ‘unrequited
comfort foods’ file?
hope you’re having
the best 2009…we’re currently blanketed in beautiful snow (edited to add: and a hefty layer of crunchy ice!) and I love the
bit of stillness it brings. -m-
