I Gave it My Best Shot

I was texting Adam last night and it was nearly 9:00pm and he was still working. Thought maybe I’d get something started. Plant the seed anyway. Unfortunately, by the time he was back to his room and able to call me, it was after 11:00pm and he was exhausted. So, I didn’t get where I was hoping to go.

I was up way too late. Found myself standing in the kitchen with a bowl of fruit loops at about 1:00am. I watched Bill Burr’s latest stand up comedy on Netflix and got some laughs. When I finally went to bed, I sent Adam one last message just to say one more goodnight, I love you. He surprised me by responding goodnight baby, why are you still up?? Apparently, he wasn’t sleeping well either. Woke up this morning to a text from Adam sent hours before I was awake good morning beautiful. I hope you got some sleep. I’m counting down the days! I’m never staying home while he’s gone for this long ever again. The kids and I could’ve gone, but my brother and his wife are here visiting for the first time in 2 years. He’s stationed in California, and away a lot, so we don’t get to see him often.

I’ve been working on a couple of other blog posts I’ll share soon. It’s harder to write with Adam away. Sort of using this like a journal or a diary this week! I’ll try to post something more relevant and interesting tomorrow 🙂

  1. I think I have been reading blogs too long. When you mentioned being up so late and Adam found out, my first thought was “She’s gonna get her bottom paddled for being up past her bedtime. ” Apparently he hasn’t set a bedtime for you but that was an automatic response in my head that your derriere was in jeopardy.
    I liked this post. It had a touch of romance as well as a hint of eroticism in it and also revealed a little more of how much you love and miss Adam.
    Thank you for writing this. It was a good post

    1. LOL! Adam knows I can’t sleep when he’s not here. He does get grumpy when I get out of bed and he’s home. He says he’d rather have me toss and turn next to him than go lay on the couch. I’m certain that he’ll find excuses to warm my behind when he gets home, but I’ve actually been nothing but sweet and good while he’s been gone. House is immaculate. Kids and pets are alive and well (lol). I never forget to lock doors and make sure garage door is closed at night. Night time is the loneliest for sure without him next to me. Thank you for always leaving such positive comments for me. I appreciate you!
