Old Married Couple

Old Married Couple
He is up at 5:30am, after little rest.  Sharply dressed. I am folding laundry.  He says, "Baltimore."  My pulse quickens.  I ask about dinner, not wanting the answer.  I lie, "It’s okay either way." It’s not okay, because I don’t even want him to leave. It’s that first day of school feeling I get sometimes. Separation Anxiety. He takes the trash in one hand and kisses me;grabs his hat and suits up. Can’t get through the baby gate. We laugh. The downstairs door closes.  I pray.  The house feels empty…

  1. What’s up with Bmore?  My hubbie left for Bmore around noon.  I saw him getting dressed and said ‘I thought you were not going’, he said ‘I have to’.  I told him I’d take my kiss now, he kissed my hand and left.  Anything to try to get a rise out of me.  They’ll be back home safe and sound soon.  No worries sweets.
  2. Thank you.  Probably no book.  Too bad you feel like this too. But misery loves company, we can always talk…until they come back home. 
  3. Don’t do it to me girl! I wanna cry! This is soooooo how I feel! – beautifully written, too; which book is this one going into?
  4. You nailed it again! I used to believe that maybe it was only me who felt this way. When I left the house and saw other SAH moms smiling and happy, I often wondered if they ever felt this way when their hubbies left for work. Similarly, I can’t wait for my other half to pull up in the parking lot and walk through the door.
