Madly in Love Monday
I am madly in love with my Engineer this Monday because he recognizes when we aren't spending enough time together. During the week, he comes home from work, does what he needs to do around the house, then gets straight to working on his schooling. Diva and I hardly see him between his schedule and ours and I just keep telling myself that this is only for a season in our lives.
Because Engineer and I have been so connected throughout our married life (we worked together every day for the first 8 years of our marriage) that when we don't see each other for even a short while, we both seem a little off. What I appreciate about him though, is that I don't have to remind him that I miss him or that we seem to be merely coexisting, he already knows. He feels it too.
We had a long talk the other night and it wasn't about anything important really but it felt like breathing. Like we had been holding our breath for weeks and finally had a chance to exhale. We could laugh together and say how much we missed each other. I love that he feels the same way I do - that my desire to be near him is reciprocated equally...well it's reciprocated equally...but oppositely...he wants to be near me not himself...now I'm confusing myself...
Bottom line, he wants to be near me too and we will both be glad when his classes are finished so we can just hang out and watch Swamp People like normal married couples. ;)
