Operation Pick Me Up


J left for Atlanta today. 2 nights alone and my heart's a little heavy already. I know I'm being a baby. Some people aren't nearly as lucky as we are. And could you even imagine after 24 years together I still hate being apart for even one night? I'm just grateful that this is a rare occurrence these days.

I can just see it now, my nights will be filled with lots of cleaning {I get maniacal about cleaning when I'm alone}, waiting for emails, texts or calls, hopefully a little shopping if I feel up to it {kinda coming down with a little cold or something}, and definitely a little something sweet to lift my spirits. Sweets always make things better, don't they?

Hope you all have a wonderful day! xoxo

Savoir Weddings said...

Ahhhh, I think that's sweet. Go and buy yourself some yummy pastries and eat them in bed. That will make you feel better. :)

Debby said...

That is so sweet, Dawn! I hope that you feel better, there are lots of nasty head colds/allergies going around. Treat yourself to a little shopping and some sweets. xo

Wow, you have been together for 24 years?! That is amazing and so incredibly sweet that you miss each other when you're not together. Ahhh true love :)

The Zhush said...

You sound just like me! Right down to the sweets.

Vanessa@Luxuria said...

I am the same when my hubby is away and we have been together the same time;24 years.
It's wonderful we feel like that, but embrace having some time alone. Perhaps you can indulge your sweet tooth by actually making some comfort foods; it will keep you busy, keep your mind off missing hubby, and hit the sugar craving ;-)
Sending you hugs from Spain.

Oh no, hope you rest well and it's not a cold! My significant other and I sometimes spend big chunks apart and it's hard - I also get some nice sweets and reorganize a LOT when that happens! :) (24 years is amazing!)

I can completely relate. I do all my cleaning on the nights my husband has class to distract myself from missing him.

You are so blessed to miss him still when he leaves. I truly understand. I have been with my hubby 24 years as well, together as a couple much longer. He works very long hours and I miss him while he is gone and we still start the day with a kiss and end the day the same way...we still hold hands and we still snuggle...I feel truly blessed as well. Hopefully your sweetie will return very soon!
