It’s Plank Pullin’ time! The one day a week that we strongly resolve to ignore the multitude of specks and sawdust around us and pull one bona fide plank from our own eye. Matthew 7:3-5, style.
First of all, to catch everyone up who may not be in the loop, that sexy Husband of mine recently went on a trip to India, a trip that resulted in him losing his job, and which he thankfully returned from Saturday.
So things should be peaches and cream around here, right? That guy that I’m in love with is back, and I even get to spend my days with my best friend because of the whole no job thing. Yay (…ish).
Any military wife will tell you that adjusting to those husbands of ours coming back is in some ways harder than adjusting to them being gone. We get quite used to being the boss of everything. We get used to planning our days around ourselves, sitting when and where we want to sit, disciplining our children as we see fit, and not having to share any of our grown up possessions and responsibilities.
I think the honeymoon lasted exactly 24 hours after the valiant return of my knight in urdu-speaking armor this time. Then he started sitting in my chair, and using my laptop, and dealing with the kids in ways differently than I would.
And the annoyance was great.
It’s funny how easily we can be perturbed when our routines get messed with.
But I always sit down to check emails at this time of the day! How dare you play angry birds when I have such important, scheduled work to do!
So…yeah… I’ve had to adjust my selfish nature. And take deep breaths. And remember all the things I am super in love with about this man, and how ecstatic I am that he’s in the same country, and house, and bed as me again.
