Well as many of you know, my sweetheart has been away taking care of his mother. I will confess that Monday of this week, I was starting to get excited. By Tuesday, I could hardly wait to see him again. Wednesday at work went really fast and soon I was on the road to Indy to get him from the airport...and I must say, I really like going to that airport better than Cincinnati--so much easier to navigate and definately cheaper! I don't think I realized just how much I missed him until I saw him standing there on the curb with all his luggage!
Thursday morning he slept until almost 11am! I know he was really worn out from everything he did to help his mother. Monday was his birthday and he said that while the calendar only showed that he had aged a year, he felt like he had aged five years! Thursday was a big day at our house. For Eric's birthday, I ordered Zoomtown. He has been wanting this for a long time and I have resisted. My response was always, "I have high speed at work, we don't need it at home." His statement went like this..."but I am at home!" So then Thursday evening, we did some heavy duty work in the basement. I have hired a friend to come help me with this job for a couple hours each week and she is FABULOUS! It has been a tremendous help for me. So Eric's comment to this was, "Gee, I go away for five weeks and then come home and we have Zoomtown and a maid!"
Anyway, the time has gone fast and I will have to return to work on Monday...(big sigh). Suffice it to say that since he has returned, I have enjoyed the time together. I am thankful to have such a wonderful friend. He really makes life fun. We are planning for him to return to Utah in January, but until then, I am going to enjoy having him home.
