It has not even been a week, and I am already missing what it's like to have a husband. With Matt gone, I am realizing all the things he did around the house and in our relationship.
In the last couple of years, I started to consider myself as the "face" of this marriage. You know, I send the update e-mails out, I blog about our updates, get the doctor appointments, order Christmas cards, pay the bills, keep us organized, etc. etc. etc!
That paragraph was not to make myself feel really important, but just to clarify my role.
I am not any more important than Matt in our relationship, but I'll be honest, I thought I was the one that made sure our life was in working order!
This is NOT THE CASE!
Here's what Matt has been doing behind the scenes:
Taking out the trash and recycling
Making sure we have stuff for dinner (if I had my way we would just eat sandwiches)
Laundry (I might just buy new clothes)
Shutting and locking our front door, which is just a sliding glass door (So, I might have left the door open one night.... oops.)
Making sure I take my medicine
Putting gas in the car
Getting my lunch and breakfast ready
Cleaning the dishes
And much much more.
Basically, Matt is the major player in our relationship. Hmmm- who would have thought.
I sure do miss this guy
In other news, Matt is loving Korea. I can't wait to get there and see everything and teach the kids!
