When The Husband’s Away…

July 9, 2011


Erin Schrader

So the other morning I woke up and I’ll admit-I might’ve prayed
“Lord…send Shawn away this evening”.
I love the kid, really I do.
But sometimes-a girl just needs some alone time.
And guess what-that good Lord listened and apparently agreed I needed some “me” time as well.
Shawn came home after work and announced he was headed to a friends house to do “man things” for the evening-which I am pretty sure consists of standing around with a cold drink in hand talking about motors and things of that nature?
I think I jumped up and down inside my brain for a minute but reluctantly told him to go & reminded him how much I would miss him.
Okay I lied, I don’t think I actually said I would miss him..it was more along the lines of
“Oh my gosh I was secretly hoping you would be gone tonight…I am soooo excited.”
I know, I need to stop being such a sweetheart.
So he left….
and this is what happened:
{…After I picked up every square inch of our house making it feel spotless for a mere 2 hours before the man returned home and dropped his pockets on our kitchen counter.

I might be a little OCD in that department…}
This girl relaxed…
I love that it is a time for me to do whatever I want…
Dim the lights-
burn some candles-
listen to my favorite music {and not have the TV on}-
brew up some of my favorite tea-
slap these nourishing little eye pads over my eyes-
lay down-
and just be still.
It was just what this girl needed…
Kinda looks like a romantical little paradise huh?
Maybe I should pull those stunts when the man is home 😉
Probably not though….he may not leave if that is the case and we all know that is not the goal{most of the time ;)}
Hunny, if you are reading {which if you know what’s good for ya, you are}…
As much as this post makes it sound like I don’t enjoy your company,
I do, honestly…
99.9% of the time 🙂
I like to believe that other .01 percent makes me a happier, calmer, awesome(r) wife.
All for you baby, all for you.
