I'm still waiting to hear from him again. Two agonizing days not knowing what his schedule is, what he's doing, what he's thinking or even where he is. I know he's safe, but I just miss his voice.
I want to tell him to watch the mail, since I sent his first care package today. I had all sorts of odds and ends in there, but made sure to include a batch of his favorite brownies.
hopefully they keep.
I want to tell him about the pretty flowers I bought yesterday for his mother. There were too many in the bouquet, so I brought some home to put in a small vase here.
DH never buys me flowers. His one flaw is that he doesn't have a romantic bone in his body (he says he has one, he just chooses not to use it). So I buy them for myself. I think they liven up a home and make it more inviting.
I also love to randomly send people flowers. If DH wasn't so dang far away, I would just send him some--I'd make sure there was something manly involved though, like a Tonka Truck ribbon on the vase...or something. I could market that...oh the possibilities!
I also wish I could show him my painting. I'm really enjoying it--and it makes me feel artistic, even though I'm creatively challenged.
I would also like to tell him about our ridiculous puppy. This is our ridiculous puppy:
Puppy is ridiculous, though. She makes me laugh all the time. She also frustrates me frequently. Sometimes I think I have a very hairy toddler on my hands.
I opened my eyes this morning to her face less than 2 inches from mine. Just staring.
I about peed my pants.
I love this animal. How could you not?
I wish I could tell him all sorts of things, but I guess I can wait a few more days. Suspense will make the stories all the more dramatic--and I do like to be animated. I guess I can use this to my advantage.
We'll see how this goes.
