For inspiration, I'm copying the post title from someone else's blog today.
In this case, it is apropos. I am without my husband these past few days, and it truly sucks. Thankfully, he returns tonight - but once again I am thankful beyond belief to have a partner in parenting... and a partner, period.
Yes, it's nice that his earlier alarm hasn't gone off as usual, but other than that, I can't think of one single advantage to having him gone. We don't even fight over the remote, so that's not an issue.
I'm tired, lonely, and counting the minutes til his plane lands.
