I miss my husband

I think pregnancy is making me an emotional crybaby. For the last two weeks, I can start crying in less than a second. Maybe its due to the fact that I haven't seen my husband in a week and he still has two more weeks out of town. He doesn't fly in until 3:00 on Halloween day. AAHHH! I'm usually fine when he goes out of town and have gotten used to it over the past 6 years that he's been traveling. But I've been so uneasy about this trip because he has to go to Uganda, Africa. Maybe it's my lack of knowledge about this country, or because I've only heard all the negative about tribal politics, raping of women/children, corrupt leaders, kidnappping of visitors, etc. All I know is I've had this fear in the back of my head and I don't know if it's me freaking myself out or something legit. Yucky feeling!

I just hope the next two weeks goes quickly because I really am missing my sweety. And not just for the help with kids (dog, horse, house....) because I'm tired and pregnant; I miss his companionship, humor, love, kindness, support, and overall great-guyness (no-not a word but I like it anyway!). He really is the perfect husband for me and it is times like this one that makes me realize it and appreciate & love him even more.

Thanks for letting me vent and if you see me with tears the next couple of weeks (months), just chalk it up to me being fat and pregnant! Now go kiss your husbands, tell them you love them, and be thankful they're home-even if they are driving you crazy!

I'll agree- Jim really is a great person and daddy. Thanks for the venting...I am going to go give Ty a big kiss right now!

I'm so sorry Jim is gone. I don't know how you do it, but I admire that you do. Adrian was working some long hours the past few weeks, and it was driving me crazy not to be able to spend so much time with him. Hats off to you. Uganda isn't the stablest country in Africa, but it's not the worst. We'll keep you both in our prayers!

I saw you the other day dropping off at Krista's. I didn't stop because I was in a hurry and didn't recognize you at first...new car...new belly! You look so great!!! Really you keep making comments about being fat and you are tiny! I am just so excited for this little boy to come....especially because I know how special it is after having cute girls. There is just a special bond between a mother and her son. Are you still doing IBT by the way? Facebook me about that if you are....just curious about things over there now.

Congrats on the pregnancy! I have been way out of the blogging world, so had no idea. And congrats on the boy! We are expecting our third in March and since I have two boys I want a girl ... we'll see. Hope your hubby gets back safely and that you get some help and rest!
