Patiently Waiting

I am a happy woman...why? Soon I will be making dinner for more than two children who rarely eat enough to make a meal worth it. Soon, I will hear those words, "thanks for dinner dear." Soon, I will settle down on the couch after putting children to bed with a man who makes me feel like I am in Heaven. Soon, I will be brushing my teeth beside my best friend. Soon, I will snuggle down beside my room mate, my soul mate and my goodness, we shall hopefully sleep.

What wonderful thing, marriage is, to be given the best friend and lover who is meant just for you. Though thick and thin, I will stand by my man and we will conquer our children or mountains, which likely would be easier. There will be new adventures for us in the future, but if it takes us here or there, it will takes us as a couple. If there is love and devotion and understanding, we will make it. I have never in my life, until you, been so resolved that life will be what it is, what God will make it.

In addition, no one makes me more furious than you, I must add this so there isn't confusion. He he he, you my sweet husband are the whole package. I cannot wait...well, even though I have to. I love you!

If I Could Be...

For you I would do anything. I would happily stand behind and let your sun shine. For like the moon, I will have my glow because of your shine.

I will wait.
I will always wait.

Let anyone dare disrespect you or make you feel less than you are.
They will have to answer to me.

I am a very proud wife.
I can hold my head high with dignity. For though I was not born perfect and though I will not die perfect, I will find us perfect together until I draw my last breath.

What you are is immeasurably awesome. What you are is wonderfully intelligent and funny. What you are is charming and loving. You my love take me as I am, refraining from trying to change me.

You can go from me and hold your head up high, knowing that I will be here whenever you return. In hours, months, or years, I will be here for you.

I trust you.

I will comfort you without you having to ask. Baby, I believe in you and together you and I can make it through anything.

I continue to wait for you. I continue to think about all the wonderful things that have yet to come our way, the stories unwritten. I sit at this computer, drinking my raspberry tea, smiling because I am your wife. I am the opposite of unfaithful, for I couldn't dare hurt you. I am the opposite of a liar, for telling the truth to you makes me happy. I am the opposite of all those other spouses we've heard about through this lonely duration. You've made me happy and have given me so many wonderful learning opportunities. Through being with you, I have gained a better understanding of myself and learned how valuable I am. You've given that gift to me, insight, so I could see my own worth. You're right, I could be strong without you, for I am a strong woman, but without you, there might as well be no sun, no air, and no other love for me. After all, there is no comparison to you, my sweet Michael.

We are passion...we are meant by God...we are both stubborn like a pair of blind boars sometimes, but we've got what it takes. Come hell or high water...come happiness and tears...come separation or togetherness...it's you and me babe...through till the end (and then some).

Imagine me, kissing your cheek...kissing your lips after a long day of work. Heck, imagine me kissing you any time of the day, the feeling of closeness that engulfs us. I will close my eyes and press my lips to yours...and all will be right again.

I love you my sweet, sassy, and surely stubborn husband. (oooohh alliteration galore)

P.S. Grey took the photo of me...kinda neat huh.












Formaldehyde Will Not Stop Me

So on my way to my parents house I heard a song on the radio that often reminds me of my sweet husband and our wonderful relationship. My folks just got a new apartment, a tiny wonderuful place wiht character I must say. It's much better than the one they were staying in before (no crazy coot living downstairs). To make a long story short, so I can get to the real point, my husband and I bought them a computer desk for Christmas and I thought an added bonus would be to put it together for them. AHHH!!! Well, I didn't know I was going to be highly allergic to the material it was made out of. It's a Sauder desk, nothing too special, made out of particle board, which likely has formaldehyde mixed in the with sawdust to compound it. I thought I was gonna pass out just putting that thing together, needless to say, breathing wasn't an easy task, but like my husband, I am stubborn. I started a project and I was going to finish it by golly. I must admit I had to take frequent breaks to regain my breath...and upon one moment when I was goign to step out for fresh air, I opened the back door only to find a huge cat...EEK! another allergen for me. Clearly, I was doomed, but as I said, I survived. Now the folks have a new, compact computer desk, which I know they really needed and wanted. It's one less hassle for them.

I should have taken photos of the new apartment...all well...another day.

Time is...

Time is getting shorter now...until my sweet hubby will be with us again. I'm super excited, but to be honest, I don't think about it much. I rarely look at the calendar unless I have to. I've taken a page from my husband's book at have been thinking about all the wonderful things we're going to do together, the joy of our daughter's second birthday. Of course, I ly awake at night just wishing that he could be next to me, holding me, but he'll be with me very soon.

I tell you, it will be great to have a parental partner again against our two little monsters. I love our children with all my heart, but there are days I wish I could say, "honey, help me out here"...of course, I don't have to ask for Michael's help, he gives it without requests...he's just a great hubby like that. I've been busting my tushie with the kiddos, school, and the housework, which has been keeping my mind preoccupied. I've been working on applying for scholarships to continue my education. I've decided on Walden University, which will be a great online university. I've also received an invitation to join Phi Theta Kappa, the national honor society for two year colleges, and I'm very happy about that.

Well, I should be off to change a diaper, brush teeth, and bundle up the kiddos so I can take the oldest monster to school. Ut oh, the littlest one is crying now...oh boy...or girl I should say.

I love my life...even with the crying and whining of our two monsters.

Pumpkin Pazoola!!!


We had a great long day today, attending the zoo. They had a special day where the kids were able to pick out pumpkins, play games, and do other kid friendly activities. I thought, "how much I miss Michael", but it wouldn't have been his cup of tea. There were a ton of folks there, and he's not that interested in large groups of people. It was a lot of fun doing things with the kiddos, but I miss being able to experience things with the hubby. Carolyn really loved seeing the animals, but she hung back in the stroller most of the time. We had a beautiful sunny day and were very thankful we arrived early enough to pick out a pumpkin and to experience more things with less folks. Check out the new photos in the photo album.

Not Much


I've not had much to talk about lately. The online connection between the wonderful hubby and I has been shut down. YEAH THOUGH!!! Good things are coming for us real soon, like the chance to be together again as a family.


Anywho, I've been busy working on the last two classes until I get my first degree, and then I'm on to another degree, the bachelor's degree in Psychology. I am so excited and very much overwhelemed with all the choices that I have ahead of me. I've finally decided on a college and now I am going to be working on scholarships to pay for my next college load.


Well, my mommy has come down to visit us. She'll be leaving tomorrow morning early, so I am off to spend more time with her. The kids have been enjoying Grandma...making cookies, playing outside, and thankfully, she's been watching the kiddos while I venture off to class. But as I said, I am off...to await my husband's call the next day and to spend lots of wonderful time with our kiddos.
