So my darling sweetie pie pulled into a port today and I got to talk to him for the first time in a couple of weeks. Even with emailing every day, it’s just not the same as talking to him. I was super happy he had access to wifi so we could facetime him.
The kids were fighting over the chance to see him and talk to him, they showed him every minute change in the house since he left. Omar even decided to show him how well he is reading (surprised the crap outta me today when we brought home hop on Pop from the library today! Who knew!)
So we all got to have a nice long talk with him and hopefully I’ll get another call tonight so can chat without kids jumping in on the conversation every five minutes.
I know these calls may be few and far between so I am loving the opportunity to talk to him. It’s so much better than email!
My only complaint is that we had just gotten home from my football practice so I was looking like hell on a holiday sweaty with no makeup… Love you honey, just look at what you are missing at home!
I am also going to start a little Five for Friday (yes it’s still Friday here, just barely) a little love list to my husband…1. I love the way one of our kids can do something and we can catch each others eye and just laugh and laugh. 2. I love how you encouraged me to finish my degree and to go for my Master’s Degree. 3. I love how you are so dedicated to this family that you are doing a job that you don’t love to support us. 4. I can’t wait to be able to snorkel with you again, seeing that turtle was magical! 5. I love when we are watching a movie and you pull me over to snuggle under your arm.
So happy that Omar called… Love and hugs, Mom
