So long - farewell...

AB had to leave us for the weekend - actually, he left yesterday morning. It's ok - he was off to help a friend in need. But as we were preparing to walk out the door, Kaleigh turned on her laser control eyes and tried to send him a message through telepathy to STAY.

It's always hard for me to have him leave - even for a weekend. It's not just about him being gone, it's that he's my best friend. So as the stuff of each day unfolds - I want to tell him. Or when the day comes to an end, I want to curl up on the couch with him. And then there's the matter of not being able to eat anything but cereal and ramen because I'm not the cook of the family. Yikes! So, it sucks to have him gone - and the dogs are clearly waiting by the door several times a day, listening for his car. (which is in the garage and I have showed them this, but to no avail) We're all just off without our AB.

MISS and LOVE YOU AB - See you Sunday, safe and sound!!

(when Kaleigh's telepathy strategy failed to work, Anabelle barreled around the corner with her own freaky eyes to chain AB to the house through the cunning use of pity. )

By the way - I have no idea why the dogs look possessed - I snapped a couple pics on the spur and this is how they came out. Freaky deaky - since I take pics of them all the time and don't get the weird eyes.

Is it just me? Can anyone relate to lonely house syndrome??

Take this time to hog the bed and covers, watch all your shows that AB hates and eat junk food. Soon he will be home and homecoming will be grand!

Keep smilin!

Umma.

I laugh and feel all googily on the inside at the same time. I miss my family, too.

But I am doing some good things out here - my friend has needed me.

I love you - and the girls. Nice snapshot of K-Dog trying to stop me ... THAT is funny!

Miss u,
AB

I used to hate it when Bob traveled but he does it so infrequently now that it doesn't bother me as much. Usually, I enjoy the first day but then it just royally sucks. It's hard when our other half is gone but know that he loves you and misses you just as much if not more. We are lucky women......our husbands rock. Love you!

I can TOTALLY relate. I really hate it when Dan is gone. I honestly can't remember what I did before he came along. I must have had a seriously boring life...either that or we've just become so dependent on each other that we're a mess when we're apart. I always feel like a wimp saying that, so now I feel like I'm in good company;) Eat cereal and rest...I guess!

The Dogs LOVE it because they sleep on his side of the bed...
Hugs to you girly

A moment for rebuttal....try having your husband home for 3 weeks straight and then drop me a line on your revised perspective.

You two are too cute!

I can loan you my husband....seriously....please take him.
