I think everyone in my house is starting to feel the effects of Cory being gone. The dogs have been awful the past nine days…they are barking in the middle of the night, not staying in the yard and are just kind of sluggish in the evenings.
My Mom snapped this picture Friday night of Einstein laying on Cory’s shoe. He never lays on things like shoes, but he flipped it upside down like this and laid on it for most of the evening.
Poor thing. He misses his Daddy. I miss his Daddy too.
I’m not the clingy wife type. I don’t have to spend every waking minute with my husband (not that I mind), I like for him to have time with his friends or doing something he enjoys because I enjoy time to myself sometimes. I knew that two weeks apart would suck but I didn’t know it would be this bad.
Maybe it’s because Cory is 7500 miles away, in a different country, on a different continent. Maybe it’s because this is the first time we’ve ever been apart this long. Yes, since January of 2006 I haven’t spent more than a few days away from him. Maybe it’s because our communication is spotty and unless we want to pay a ridiculous amount to call or text, we can only talk when he has access to Wi-Fi. Since I don’t know where he is or what he is doing, I’ve been waiting by phone for the past week. Maybe it’s because out of the 8 nights he has been gone, I’ve had 2 good nights of sleep. 2 out of 8 nights!
Whatever the reason may be, this blows. Being the person at home is hard. And I may be a tad bit jealous that he is getting to experience Africa without me.
Please don’t get me wrong and think that I wish Cory hadn’t gone. I’m so proud of him and the work he is doing for the Lord. I can’t wait to hear his stories, look at his pictures and see the changes happening in him. I know that God is preparing us both for whatever the future may hold but that doesn’t mean I can’t miss my husband!
3 more days and he will be home!
