This Good Day!

The Mister has been gone for six days. 

I cannot wait for him to get home tonight. 

When he is gone, I cannot sleep. I do not cook. I am generally good for nothing. 

Put I've posted about this before. So I won't repeat myself.

Today is going to be fun. We have one last day of beautiful weather until winter comes back. 

I actually wore capris yesterday. Which reminds me, I shaved. Capris call for drastic measures.

You know, it amazes me how a little warm weather can change my outlook on almost everything. Just when I thought I might go a little crazy with cold weather, it turned around for a bit. The daffodil buds are starting to pop-up and fill my heart with anticipation for spring. 

Hope. 

It's life changing. Isn't it?

I am not the only one excited about The Mister's return. The Girl has been practicing her bike riding skills every afternoon. She asked last night if she could show her daddy how she can ride RIGHT when he gets home. Unfortunately, by the time we get him home from the airport it will be dark, so it will have to wait until Saturday morning. I have tried several times to upload video, but Blogger is being funny...grrr.

The Boy has been able to ride a bike for years, but the bike he is currently riding is The Mister's childhood bike: a Mongoose. When we were living in AZ my father-in-law gave it to The Boy, and he thinks its so cool to be able to ride the bike his Dad rode all over that southern Arizona town.

I've sort bounced all over the place today haven't I...so I'll bounce one more time. I finally caved to peer pressure. I opened a Twitter account: @LaVidaCoffeeGal. I am in the process of getting a new phone. We still have our Texas cell phones from three moves (and six years) ago! But hopefully within the next week or so that will change!

Happy Friday!

I'm sure The Mister will be glad you shaved, Kellie!

SO happy for you to be reunited. I have a bike riding story to tell you someday.

And I hope you have a fabulous day.

PS--Winter is in full swing here. Snow on the ground and more on the way. It's hard for my heart to endure winter for soooooooo long!

Hope it is a sweet reunion! Enjoy the fabulous day, we made it outside this morning even though it was 40 degrees!

I know what you mean. If my hubby is gone for the night I have no motivation to do anything. We usually end up eating cereal for dinner and I fall asleep in front of the tv. It's kinda sad.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. They were so encouraging and you know what? I asked for prayer and God has been filling me with so much peace and purpose, just when I have really needed to pour it into the people around me (husband especially). So, thanks and have a sweet reunion with your smooth legs;)

I am the same way when my hubby is gone...thank goodness it isn't that often.

I loved the part about the shaving...I am totally with you on that one.

I am about to go over and "follow" you on twitter, so if you see "Tiggsntx" that's me!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hate when my husband travels, too. I have the hardest time sleeping. I can't completely relax, there's always this paranoia lurking below the surface.

We've had a taste of spring here, as well. It's been great, although today the temps finally dropped. Hopefully only a few more weeks till the capri weather comes back to stay!
