Want some ketchup?

Today a friend of mine reminded me of that old ketchup commercial with the girl holding a bottle of ketchup upsided down and waiting. Wasn't the jingle, "Anticipa-a-tion is making me wait." I don't know....the curls sometimes tumble things together.

Anyway, the wait is tough right now. We both thought he would be home today, but didn't hear anything definite, until today, when he called to say that he should be home.....Monday. *sigh* A few days ago I wished I had more time because there was so much to do, and now, I really don't care about any of that stuff....I just want my guy home. Really, if he had walked in this morning just after I got up, with me in his sweats (ugh! I just about never wear sweats!) and my hair still all scary and wild and dishes on the counter, I really wouldn't have cared, even after all that dreaming of looking and being stunning for him.....when it comes right down to it, none of that external stuff really matters......our hearts just need to be back together again; I need my bestest buddy back by my side.

Shouldn't it be easier now that it's only a couple of days rather than 6 or 7 months? I am trying REALLY hard not to be impatient......but golly it will be so good to wrap my arms around that big strong man of mine!!!!

For your viewing pleasure (or means to hysterical laughter), I present.....Us! 14 years ago this December!

And just so you know, I did have shoes one when I got married, however there was no film in the camera....which we didn't discover until after. I requested that they not get my feet in the picture as they were sore from wearing the shoes.....and the rest, as they say, is history!

I love your blog and will have to stop back by when I have more time.

We all looked goofy 14 years ago but you also look very happy and blessed.
