Yup, it might sound completely mushy - especially after this many years, but I MISS him SOOOOOO much!!!!!
He's been gone since Thursday and won't be home until Friday. I miss, miss, miss him.
I think I take it for granted how much we are actually together and how great that feeling is. It's just a natural place to be. So when we're apart, it's torture. Sure, a couple days here and there are tolerable, but a whole week!? Why is it, when we are on vacation for a whole week, it just flies by. But, a week apart seems to take forever!
We always tease that we've "goosed". Like geese. They mate for life. We are definately life'rs.
Until then.....Honey, I can't wait to see you.
But, it's probably a good thing he is gone, 'cause I've pretty much been sick this whole week. Chest cold, head cold, whatever. Just plain yucky. Tonight is the best I've felt so far.
This is my last day being 40! I survived it! I put on my "big girl panties" and got over it! Tomorrow I'll be onto a fresh, new year. 41. FORTY-ONE! I really can't believe it. They say women come into their own and have the time of their lives during their 40's. So far, so good! No mid-life crisis for me. I'm living in a great place. Have a great family. Love my awesome husband. AND I already have a little red sports car - and my Jeep! What's to have a crisis about???? Life's good!
***footnote*** Just thought I'd share a strange thing about my Big Girl Panties post from last April 2008. It is the highest ranking post on my blog. Funny, but it seems to get the most traffic online. Panties Fans. Who knew????
I'm just a country girl, having the time of her life, treasure hunting daily, seeing the good in all things that others might consider worthless. I love creating mixed media artwork and home décor items using found objects...and I've just recently started dabbling in wearable art jewelry. Many of my fixed-up finds have been published in a number of magazines and have won accolades. But my life spent in Southern Oregon, with my family and friends, is the MOST important to me. Without their support and encouragement, I might just be another hoarder! LOL I'm enjoying meeting like-minded persons and sharing ideas, dreams, and experiences...and hope to have the studio open to the public someday soon.
Tina Schiefer works and lives in Southern Oregon, where she and her husband own and operate a themed fabrication company serving the entertainment industry, E.B. Effects and Design. She is the proud mother of three grown sons; is a themed media, assemblage artist using primarily found objects and cast-offs; and will soon be hosting and teaching mixed media, jewelry, and home décor related workshops in her new studio, The Rusty Monkey. She is enjoying meeting other artists with like minds and sharing the adventure! She was an ICE Resin Creative Team Member 2011-2012. Many of her creations can be seen in a variety of magazines such as Somerset Home, Somerset Gallery, Art Doll Quarterly, Somerset Memories, Mingle, Somerset Life, Belle Armoire Jewelry and Jewelry Affaire, and on the spring issue of Create & Decorate. Most recently, one of her assemblages, Folly - a parasol, won 2nd place in the Spellbinders Explore Beyond - Craft to Win contest.
