Time to Come Home
We made it over 8 years without spending a day apart. I kind of thought we'd be one of those old couples that got to say that we'd never spent a night apart, but jobs get in the way of those types of things. Eric has been out of town on business. It is a short trip and not really a big deal, but I think I will mention it. Mostly because it's on my mind.
Last night I called Eric in his hotel room to see how his day had gone. We ended up talking for over 2 hours. I know, you're more than welcome to roll your eyes.
I was reminded of the time I on a vacation to Montana with my family. Eric and I were just dating at the time. He was house sitting for my family while we were away. Every evening while I was away I would give him a call. Mind you this was in the days before the widespread use of the cell phone (think 1998) and phone costs were not what they are today. We talked a lot and ended up with a humongatron phone bill. When we were finally reunited we were so excited to see each other, it had been a couple of weeks. Our cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing, apparently we find each other hilarious.
Last night after I said goodbye I settled in for the night and was so thankful that after all of these years Eric and I are still chatting away and laughing for hours. He's coming back tonight and I think we'll celebrate with a fort night, providing that he gets home early enough. We haven't had a proper fort night since we moved to WY.
