Jacob is home on R&R. What a sweet time of reconnection for our family! I didn't even take pictures of his homecoming because i kinda feel like sometimes a camera gets in the way. He won't be home long, so we will do as much as we can in the short time we have. The kids are all but growing off of his skin every minute. Candice was so cute...the day he was coming home she dressed to the 9's to impress him! She put on her prettiest dress, nice fancy shoes, fixed her hair all beautiful and stayed clean all day Just because Daddy was coming home! truthfully she kinda put me to shame; i didn't even put makeup on that day. But in my defense i did have a rough day with Bible study, dentist appointments- 4 cavities being filled- and cleaning and whatever else comes with the normal day! Its all good- don't even think Jacob noticed, to be honest!
We went to church today. It was nice sitting next to him in the pew. Nice to hear his very talented singing voice next to me and Sweet to have all the help this morning. We were even early! I don't even know what to do with myself when we are early getting some place. Sad, I know!
You know what the weirdest thing is about him being home. I feel like i am doing something wrong having a man in my bed. Like I am having some kind of affair or something-even though I full well KNOW that this is my husband and it is perfectly morally right to have him there. Matter of fact, it is a great thing to have him there. I guess when you lay in bed night after night alone; then all the sudden there is a man there- it does feel strange. Its a good feeling to roll over and feel this strong manly body next to me--but it plays games with my head. So now you can think i am REALLY strange! LOL!
One thing i am really excited about is that while Jacob is home he can take his ID over to the YMCA and get us the discount that was promised. I have been waiting for his job to do it, but they never got around to it, so now that he is home it can get done! I love the YMCA!!
I know these next weeks are going to go fast. I want to cherish every minute that we have a family and use it as a healing time and fun time for the kids as well. I am sure that I will be elated when this part of our life is in the past!
