The State of This Union
well, his "prison sentence" is finally ending! YAY! he will officially be moving back home august 9th! that's only TWO weeks from now! EEEKKKK!!!!!! (did i use enough exclamation marks?)
i am beyond excited to have my whole family living under one roof for the first time since mack's arrival. it's going to be great to have him come home after a day at work, spend time together, not have to call each other to say goodnight, and actually sleep in the same bed.
i tried really hard to be strong during his absence (though it was great that he got to come home on the weekends), because i didn't want him to feel bad about a situation that he had no control over, but it was never easy.
the worst was having to go to bed by myself. i usually put it off as long as i could (staying up till 1 or 2 am most nights), because i dreaded sleeping alone. unfortunately, this seems to have caused me to develop a sleeping problem. i've never been the type to fall asleep as soon as their head hits the pillow, but over the past year it's gotten much worse. i usually toss and turn for a couple of hours before i finally doze off. the best nights' sleep that i ever got was on the weekends, so i'm hoping his permanent return will help.
i have grand plans for life after his return, too. maintaining a squeaky clean house will become a daily thing, rather than putting it off till the night before his return, and he'll come home to a home cooked meal almost every night. (i used to be really good about this one, but it'll be tough getting back in the habit of planning a menu.)
i know it isn't going to be perfect and there will most likely be a honeymoon period before the reality of living together again sets in, but i'm still so ecstatic! i just can't wait to have my family back together!
