Good things and bad thingsPosted: May 7, 2010 Filed under: War and Peace 9 Comments
Because life is full of both, right?
Good: the Romgi gets to do an amazing internship (externship, technically, although my spell check says that it not a real word) in Korea. Bad: it is without me, and it is for a month. He left this morning.
Good: the Bwun and I went grocery shopping and we might be able to eat real(ish) food for the next week. Bad: I forgot we needed eggs, for the delicious macaroni and cheese I made for dinner, so we had to go to the Creamery. They were out of donuts.
Bad: I miss the Romgi so, so much. I’m sure it will get better, once we can write back and forth and hopefully do video chat (if I can get our webcam working); right now he’s on the plane, and it’s been a rough, boring day. I needed cupcakes. Good: some friends came over with cupcakes for the Bwun and I, and stayed to chat. It made me feel incredibly better.
Good: I took some pictures of the Bwun eating his blue-frosted cupcake (I am such a nice mom. But he was such a nice Bwun today). Bad: the Romgi took the camera cable with him to Korea. I’m not sure if we have another.
Also, military wives, I don’t know how on earth you do it. I’m having a hard time facing the idea of one month, where my husband is in no danger and can talk to me frequently. My hat’s off to you.
And finally, please check out this off-the-charts amazing lamp. If you’re feeling generous…get one for the Bwun?
I’m so glad someone brought you cupcakes!! Having done time without my spouse, I can tell you it doesn’t really get “better” but after it’s over you’ll think it was short. Until then it will be long. And I’m with you. I don’t know how military wives do it. When Dad was off in England we didn’t get to talk a lot, but I think he was able to call me sometime. That will help. But you will get through it and the Bwun will help.
Is the lamp like a nightlight thinie?
“…with cupcakes for the Bwun and me”
Brian, thank you for your sympathy. I appreciate your words of comfort.
We very much wanted to bring you cupcakes, but had some logistics issues. I am glad someone else brought you some of what you needed!
Oh, but on a serious note, I do actually appreciate the wanting-to-bring-cupcakes sentiment. Just not the grammar police sentiment.
Nobody ever appreciates the police when they are apprehended breaking the law. But the police are necessary for the greater social good.
And on a serious note, we really did want to bring you cupcakes. Since that didn’t work, maybe we can come visit next weekend (or have you come up here, if you don’t want your place to be swarmed by all the kids.)
D’oh! Forgot to undisguise my name. I bet you didn’t know it was me.
One day, one month, one year…..it’s always a long time without your spouse. I’ll send you some cake mix for cupcakes!
