This is going to be a sappy post- I won’t even try to hide it! Mr. R has been away for almost a week in Cuba, and it’s been freaking hard! Let’s get a few things straight:
- I am SO happy he has the opportunity to go to Cuba, again, this year! We went last year together (don’t remember? Check out our trip here and here!) So when he got the chance to go again this year, of course it was a no-brainer! With Baby R coming next year, who knows when the next time he/we will be able to go. It’s so important for him to get to spend time with his family, so I’m happy he’s there.
- I’m really not a needy person. I’m fine spending time alone, and luckily I have my amazing family here this year, so I’ve been having a week long sleepover here! But it’s different than a regular trip or week apart. We talk only once a day (and that’s a lot, for Cuba!) For a couple that’s attached at the hip like we are, it’s hard to go from texting, emailing and talking on the phone ALL day and for every little issue or thought, to only once a day. I feel like I need to make a list to make sure I get to tell him everything I want to each night.
I’ve been doing really well, though! I’m so enjoying my time with my family here, and I’ve gotten almost all of my Christmas shopping done already, but it’s just so weird not having him here. But he comes back Saturday, so I really can’t complain. I was just parusing Pinterest and saw this picture and got all sad and sappy. I know it’s super cheesy, but I just started thinking about the butterflies he STILL gives me, and of course that made me miss him even more! And I hate that he’s missed a week of the pregnancy – Miss Anissa has been kicking up a storm, so I really hope he can feel her when he gets back! He did get to hear her heartbeat on the doppler, though, which is amazing!
Anyway, only one more day till he’s back and I can quit my moping! I love you and miss you, Mr. R!
