Side Note:
For those who haven't figured it out, or haven't been here: The titles of most of the blogs here are song lyrics. If you google them, it should take you to the song and the song is good to listen to before, during, or after reading to help set the tone of the blog. I find music to be very cohesive with reading and writing.

Momma Said There'd Be Days Like This...

Block leave is coming to an end. Tomorrow is the last day of all-hubby all-the-time for me and I am none-too-happy about it. I am keeping a stiff upper lip for the most part, but the other evening as we settled into bed he opened up a little about how much he will miss me and how its been hard knowing this week has had a "last meal" sort of feel to it before he has to leave. He isn't leaving for a little while yet, but block leave coming to an end makes it seem inevitably closer. Atleast we had time together, some people didn't even get that.
We've been working out together nearly every night this week too. We are trying to keep each other motivated but after doing a cake order yesterday and then cooking all day today and being out in the cold last night I'm sort of leaning away from going this evening. I'm sure I will go anyway, but I'd much rather take some medicine, curl up in a ball on the couch and watch our movies from Netflix.
As for tomorrow being the last day of leave, I intend to make him his favorite breakfast: biscuits and sausage gravy. I wanted to make him macaroni and cheese for dinner as well, but with the excellent planning on the part of his COC to put block leave -nowhere- near a payday, that won't be happening.
Hmm. It looks like I may need to play DD to him this evening since he wants to visit one of his friends for some PS3 and a few beers. Better go clean up.



  1. Holy cow. Why was block leave so short?

  2. It was 10 days, is that short? I don't have much to compare to so I thought it was okay. I mean if I had my way about it I'd have him an entire month but I don't see that happening.
