the longest hug
I was half asleep when he came home. I heard the coat closet door open as he put his jacket away. I heard the bedroom door open and he got took off his work clothes then closed the door so I could sleep.
I just needed to see his face because it had been five days without seeing him in light. I opened the door as he was walking into the kitchen and he says, "hi, beautiful". We walked towards and wrapped our arms around each other. I swear we were hugging the longest hug we've ever hugged (laughs). He kissed my cheek and forehead over and over. I melted against his body but my hold was strong because I didn't want to let him go. God, I missed him.
He tells me to go back to bed and I said, "come with me".
"I'll come soon."
"I know what you're going to do."
"You know nothing (laughs)."
I bought brownie bites from Target which are made with crack BTW. I knew he saw them when he came home and would eat them all.
We briefly talked about our day and drifted away into a deep sleep.
In the morning when it was still dark out, he kissed me goodbye and said, "I love you". I realize that it's Friday and he'll get done working in time for dinner. I can't wait to see him.
