I am counting the days - Friday means in just 3 more days, my other half will return after nearly 7 weeks overseas. This was so not easy this time. Over the years, I have given way to my husband's family's needs; nearly always putting them first! I don't know why - it just has always been that way. I suppose I thought the time when I was here for 6 months on my own (circa 2008/9) would be the last time I'd have to do something like that. Oh I got on alright; but that was because I was able to go out and about; shop cook and take care of things.
This time is all together different. Due to contracting RA, I had, for the past 4 years, been unable to get about without help, in fact I spend weeks inside the apartment without going outside the door. I was very concerned but then again, so was he. However, his family thought his mother wasn't going to survive her illness...
So he went "home" - the place he was born in; the place where he grew up. If I'd been better physically, if we'd had the money to cover two airfares; maybe I could have gone with him..... But neither was the case.
Now after making things go right for weeks, he will be home on Tuesday morning; the plane lands at 6am!
I can't wait to be reunited..... It has been a very long interval without his support..
Meanwhile, the bub below caught and held my attention; what a little cutie! And, it IS Friday after all - have a great weekend eh?!
