Its the little things...

Over the past couple of weeks I've had a lot of really crazy dreams. I'm pretty sure Mr leaving is screwing with my subconscious and providing me with these horrible dreams.


The other morning Mr. came in to tell me goodbye...he'd already been up for a hour studying for something or another and came to grab something and give me a kiss goodbye*.


I informed him that I had a horrible dream that he was going to leave me for a friend of ours, who is a girl in another squadron. We actually hung out with her over the weekend.


Mr laughed and said "Oh God...no way."

I said "You told me I wasn't the refuge you were hoping for."

He said, "I don't even know what that means..."

I responded, "Yeah, you're always a lot smarter in my dreams".


He walked out of the bedroom closing the door telling me I was mean. I assured him I was joking and then 5 seconds later he said "Okay, I know what it means now...damn it, it shouldn't have taken me that long..."



Those are the conversations I'm going to miss when he's gone to the desert. The lighthearted joking we give each other all day everyday. People often laugh at us when we were around. People think we're fighting, but rest assured we're not. Its a crazy, perhaps deranged way we show affection to each other. I know we're freaks, but its ok.



Its us, I'm a firm believer that every couple has their own language of love and sometimes ours includes calling each other a dumbass occasionally...


Over the winter, we've been doing a fair amount of snowboarding...well I'm learning Mr is an old pro. Here he is tearing it up on the slopes...


I'm gonna miss this as well...


* As the wife of an aviator, it is a must in our household that when you leave the house no matter the time of day or night or what you are doing, you find your spouse give them a kiss/hug and tell them you love them. Something can happen during a flight, heck something could happen walking to your car, I want my last words to my spouse to be "I Love You!".

Yep, we do it too. A kiss & "I love you" no matter what because, as you said, you never know.

Aww! In my household we do the same. We always kissand say "love you" before leaving the house. On the phone too.

I think it's a great way to start/end a day!

Hubby and I only took home one piece of valid advice from our Pre Cana (Catholic pre-marital counseling), and that was to never leave a room without giving your spouse a kiss. We take that to heart.

What a great action shot! I'm thinking of you.

Same rule in this house. My parents were the ones who started it with me and it has been carried on through out my life. I can remember yelling at my mom on the phone (probably because I couldn't stay out after curfew) and hanging up on her, only to call her back ten seconds later and tell her I loved her...then hanging up again.

My husband is also an Air Force aviator and we do the same. A fellow flyer, a friend from college, passed away in a crash and his wife told us that he hadn't said goodbye that morning (perhaps because he didn't want to wake her). She says it is one of her worst regrets. I wish your hubby the safest of trips and hope it goes quickly for you.

My hubs is a police officer... each time he leaves no matter what time.... kiss and "I love you". If it's the middle of the night, he goes in and looks in on our sons.
