Lee came back after midnight. So good to have him home. He was sleeping in a bit before spending the morning with us before heading into work after lunch. All was well until his cell phone rang, and, noticing it was from his superior officer, I answered it.
Then I realized his boss wasn’t calling to see if he got in okay, but to call him in to work this morning. And ask him to spend his lunch break doing training, so we can’t even go spend lunchtime with him. So I stomped around awhile (literally) and have been stomping on the inside all morning, without my husband. Yes, welcome to the military. I just wish I hadn’t answered the phone.
I’ve been somewhat sulkily thinking about how this experience of mine is mirrored in my children, but I confess I’m not spiritual enough to figure it out yet.
I’m tired. Taking a nap is actually the most spiritual thing I can do for my kids right now, I’m that tired.
