Today is Sunday, January 3, 2010. Let me tell you it is COLD here! In the teens for the next couple of weeks and there is no way I am going anywhere that I don't have to go. I will sit inside the comfort of a 70 degree home and watch the critters. The sparrows and cardinals have been here the last couple of days and they don't seem to mind the weather one bit. I still think that if it is going to be this cold here, then we should have the snow to go with it.
Hubby left about noon today, for what we are thinking three weeks, but as we have all seen, who knows how long. LOL He said that if he doesn't get the hours there that they had told him they were getting he is going to go to Charleston. It is only about four hours away instead of the seven. The only draw back is that some of the guys he worked with here have only been home twice since July. I just don't see him doing that. He tells me he is fat, dumb and happy right here at home. I tried to make it a better situation, if he worked for two years there, he could semi-retire. We would be debt free. So at least he left here in a little better spirit than the last time. Just twenty-four months and not have to worry about it.
Even though I try to make sense of all of this with him having to contract, I really hate it. No matter how much I try to make him feel better about it, no matter how much I tell him not to worry about the home front, I hate it. I miss getting his coffee in the morning, enjoying it together. I miss watching him out the window puttsing around the yard. I miss him and the boys having war of words at the dinner table. I miss him yelling, Baby what's wrong with this thing? Referring to the computer. I miss his touch, his smell, I miss him.
We had a wonderful New Year's eve, stayed at home and the kids dropped by one at a time. He had gotten a bushel of Oysters. No, I don't eat these things raw! UGH! He does and a couple of the boys do, so they were in heaven. We did steam a few and that was enough for me with the weather being so cold. Maybe it is just me, but I don't like to eat with my jacket on. Now if it were the summer and a bushel of blue claw crabs well, look out, I can throw them bad boys down.
I did my ritual and placed all of my crystals and tools out to be cleansed and charged. It was a beautiful Blue Moon, even with all of the clouds. So full of energy!
Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~
