Honey, I'm Lost Without You!

My honey is gone camping with almost 30 of the men in our church, plus some of their boys, on their MEN'S EXCURSION! Although I am happy that he gets to go and rough it with a bunch of guys, playing paintball etc., is it too sappy for me to say, that I'm lost without him? I know, I know, some of you are thinking, "OH PLEASE!"

Seriously though, we are coming up on our 25th wedding anniversary on the 18th and when you've spent that much time together, it feels like a part of you is missing, when they're gone. I just love spending time with him, but don't you worry, I am quite capable of using my time alone, very unwisely.

I decided to stay in my pajamas all day on the computer with my photoshop program.......print out some on the phone for an hour with a friend who is hurting.......lay in my bed snuggled up in my down comforter for a little time of rest (since I haven't slept a wink in days).......replaced the water in the fish tank after accidentally splattering soap bubbles in to my friend Michelle for a minute to discuss something with Photoshop.......catch up on some blog the So You Think You Can Dance more than I should have........load the dishwasher and then write this blog post. WHEW! IT'S BEEN A VERY HARD DAY! I think I will finish it off with a long hot bath, write in my prayer journal and then go to bed. I REALLY MUST LEARN TO TAKE IT EASY, DON'T YA THINK?


  1. Yes, a very hard day indeed. ;)

    I know how you feel... after a week, mine is coming home today.

  2. Thanks so much for the nice comments on my blog!
    You have a great blog too and your pictures are really great!!
    Take care and enjoy the time to yourself while hubby is away camping!! Hope you have a great Anniversary later this month too!!

  3. I know what you mean about something being missing when the husband is not around. It does sound like you were able to catch up on a lot and get some great me time.
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. He'll be home soon. Really try to enjoy this down time and do some things for yourself that you normally don't take the time to do. I'll be Praying for a peaceful remainder of your alone time! :)

  5. I agree...happy to have my husband go and be a guy...but I am lost without him...who would have thought! Miss him already and he hasn't even left yet...I am bringing him lunch today to get my last kiss for a couple of days :(


  6. I'm glad I'm not the only one! My post today is the same thing. And although I had to do some shopping yesterday, I stayed up ridiculously late getting pics on my facebook and chatting with a few friends online. I've already spent too much time on this morning, I've got straightening up to do and I realized I need to go BACK to the store to get baking soda for dessert tonight. Michelle's coming over, and she gets to be a guinea pig for a recipe I have. It involves chocolate and raspberries, so how bad can it be?

  7. Oh my gosh do we all feel the same, I came home to an empty house after work today. Not a good feeling and it will be the big 29 for us in September,but I know how excited my James was to go and just be with men. So I guess I can take it for two days, and Deje it is ok to have pajama days etc, I plan on doing just that along with some recipe searching, a good movie and maybe order out for chinese or something, and a nice presto log in the fireplace, thats my plan anyway, and catching up on alot of emails, and I just want to tell you that I loved your finished assignment, the picture collage of the kids, how adorable.

  8. Well, I guess we all feel the same way, about our honeys being gone. Can't wait to find out how much fun they've been having. Thanks for all of your comments and hope you all are having a great weekend! :)
