Happy Friday, y'all! Mychael has been out of town all week on business. I'm leaving early from the office today to go and pick him up! I'm so excited! I missed my monkey bear.
When Mychael told me he would definitely be going on a trip for work I was a little nervous. But I also was excited for him! My excitement for him overshadowed my nervousness. I knew when I dropped him off at the airport that I would cry when I said goodbye, I didn't. I knew that I would leave the airport in tears, I didn't. I knew that when he called me on the first night to tell me sweet dreams I would cry, I didn't. I was proud of myself!
I didn't want him to worry about me here at home, when his focus needed to be on his job. Did I miss him, yes, like crazy.
The first couple days I didn't know what to do with myself. We have the same routine so when I came home and that routine wasn't there... I felt a little lost. BUT I got to kick off my shoes as soon as I came in the door with no one to tell me that I should really put them up. Ugh, that totally takes away from the whole kicking off your shoes thing. Although I did trip over my shoes a couple times and thought, grr if Mychael was here those would be put away. I also didn't make the bed one single day. I'm a rebel.
I was really surprised that our furkids took Mychael being away the hardest. Angel just sits and mopes, he didn't sleep with me until last night. He either slept by the front door or at the end of the bed facing the doorway. My little girl Speedette didn't sit and cuddle with me on the couch but sat at the other end of the couch facing the front door. Last night I finally was able to get them to both come to bed and got their little purr motors going. I know they will be super happy to have Mychael home and Angel will be licking Mychael's face and drooling with happiness. Yes, our Angel drools when he is super happy.
Tonight we are going to celebrate Shellie's Flower Guy's birthday, then I plan on keeping Mychael all to myself for the rest of the weekend!
Does your significant other travel for work?
How did you handle their first trip?
Are you like me and had previously never slept alone in a house?
