M.I.A and tagged

I've totally blown off any social networking for the last week. I don't know why.... The trip on the ship was nothing short of AWESOME. Although my hubby was exhausted most of the time it was time well spent and I hope I made the last couple weeks more bearable for him. One more week y'all!!!!!! I can't contain myself. I was tagged by runner's rambles to list 10 things that make me happy. In the spirit of my hubby in the homestretch of coming home I'm adding a special twist. I feel like I'm always just talking about the negative stuff, but there are some positives to our unique situation. 10 reasons to be happy while my hubby is gone:
. 1. We get to write gushy love letters via email
2. Waiting for that one phone call every other week is like waiting for a call from your first crush - the anticipation is exhilarating
3. We don't waste time arguing about stupid shit that doesn't really matter
4. The time we are together is valued and not taken for granted
5. I like to stay looking good so when he sees me for the first time in nearly 3 months he is proud to have such a hot wife
6. We constantly tell each other how grateful we are for each other
7. The first embrace after 75 looooong days
8. I get butterflies the whole week in anticipation of his homecoming
9. We never get annoyed with each other
10. Our love is always growing, yet always has the fresh new feeling
I think most of you have been tagged and I love hearing all the happyness out there. If you havn't been tagged yet - tag your it! Let's hear it.
Race report: The 17 mile trail race never happened. My first DNS and I could care less. The ship was delayed (the story of my life!) and I ended up spending one extra night on the ship, so I didn't get home until later race day. Ask me if I care. I don't!

Kristen said...

Ahh, that is so sweet! You are so lucky to have such a strong relationship. So glad you had a great time with him.

Hi! I'm Erin said...

Great idea to focus on the positive things! And I think your reason for your DNS is perfectly justifiable :-)

Jamie said...

I've cut myself off from social networking the last 2 weeks so I completely understand! Love your list!

Jocelyn said...

Nice list! Made me go "awww" hahah

Anne said...

That was a great list! Have you thought about putting a copy of this list up on your fridge for those days when you need a little boost :)

KAT said...

LOVE how happy this post is..damn take all the time you want off of blogging to see your man!

Molly said...

awwwww....great twist on the list! Sounds like you guys are very happy : )

Amy said...

I don't think that's a real DNF b/c you weren't even there to start. And who cares is right.

I loved your 10 things list. Adorable!!!!!

I've been incommunicado too...don't know why but don't care.

Running and living said...

Oh, I love the list!

Missy said...

Perfect list! I find people that argue about stupid shit annoying. I mean, it doesn't REALLY matter if you left the coffee pot dirty, does it? Shit like that. It really would be like getting to see or talk to your crush...I need to be more like that than 'hurry up.' :) hahahahaha!

KK said...

Great list-I agree, time spent apart in relationships is a good thing! Fuels the passion and keeps people unannoyed with one another.

Agree with Amy, wasn't really a DNF if you weren't there to start.

Kelly said...

Your list is awesome! It's great that you can be positive about this :) And awesome that you stay looking good for him!

Meg said...

This was probably my most favorite blog post of the week...ah, love. You should treasure what you have because it is rare! I sometimes think that time a part isn't always THAT does make you appreciate each other in a whole new way!

Tara said...

Well, this is a fresh new outlook on the "10 Things" I love it!

I remember when my husband moved out to Colorado and I was still back in Missouri. Those were the longest 6 months of my life and it was always so exciting to see him again.

You are lucky to have such a great relationship with him. I'm quite SURE that you didn't mind spending another night on the ship. wink. wink.

Molly said...

dude, no worries about the tag! thanks for reading all those posts! : )

Chloe said...

AH! What a great post!! Big J just left today for Tuna Fishing I'm a fishing widow for a month. And this post just put a HUGE grin on my face. Double fist pump!!!

Alisa said...

I love this list! It's so true when they are far away you miss them more and more. When I lived in Boston, before Justin moved, it was so hard to be that far away. The phone become my best bud =)
