Thad comes home today! I feel like it has been forever that we've been apart. First two weeks in California, home one day, and then gone 8 days to Austin for Level 1 Baptiste Yoga teacher training. This last week has been very difficult for me, more than I anticipated. We are used to spending a lot of time together, and even when he's gone for work, we talk or email pretty frequently. While at training I talked to him for literally 2 or 3 minutes every afternoon and that was it. I tried to stay busy but still found myself with my cell phone glued to my side from 3pm on! In some ways it was exciting to have that anticipation and excitement to see his name come up on caller ID - like that feeling you have when you're just starting to date.
I also think it's been difficult for me because I feel like I'm missing out on sharing something so big with him. We've been married 10 years and together almost 13 now and have gone through so much - always together - whether it's something exciting and positive or sad, or stressful - life changing events we've shared. I really believe that our experiences in life are what shapes us and makes us who we are. So, a lot of anticipation today about seeing him again and hearing all about the experience in the hopes of sharing it in some small way.
