My hubby is home. My house is warm. I am happy.
I made my mark as an independent woman. And I do okay when he's gone. I don't fall apart, miss my bus, skip classes, or stop bathing. The house is clean, I cook for myself, the laundry is done.
But my life is an emptier place without him. I want him here. I smile more. There is more joy.
Love is a wonderful thing.
After almost 12 years together, I still get a fluttery feeling of happiness in my tummy everyday when I hear my husband pull into the driveway after work. Love is good!
You two are so very adorable. It gives me hope. :)
Aw, hon. You guys really warm my heart, honestly. It's really wonderful to see such love.

There is more joy.
Ahhhhh i'm glad he's back in your life and that you two apperciate what is present between the both of you!!!.....So sweet! to actually see someone valuing their partner.....not enough of that around.....:-)
I know how you feel. I can't wait til mine gets back.
My day began, thirteen hours ago, reading a post from a friend, expressing joy at loving and being loved. And now, at the end of a soul-destroying workday, my day ends, reading a post from a friend, expressing joy at loving and being loved.
I swear, you people are like dogs: no matter how bad my day has been, you always greet me with joy. And this is why I invite you into my home.
Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. ...here, have a biscuit
I am very much the same way. After 7 years working together, as well as living together, and then 8 months of being together nonstop while unemployed, it was hard for me to adjust to him not being around. But I manage. And I am thriving as a housewife, actually.
But I still like it better on his days off.
I'm glad y'all have each other. And that you're home together.
I know that feeling. I work, I exist, I do OK on the left-brain side, but when I'm back to a state of him being around the world feels right again. Its no longer an effort to 'be'. I know that I did OK for 6 years on my own without an SO but now that I'm with this gentleman its difficult being alone for only a few days. Gah, I'm supposed to be intelligent and independent but it doesn't help - human bonds are funny things.
It's so amazing to see two people so in love with each other write about it on the internet, allowing those of us living alone with only a WiFi connection keeping us in contact with humanity to have a window into how normal people live.
(On rereading, I think that came out wrong, but I'm going to leave it because I mean it. I mean it in the most positive way possible, in that whole "you give me hope" kind of way. Any snarkiness is completely unintentional. For once in my life, I'm being sincere!)
You're being sincere? Stop the presses!
Yay! It's a beautiful thing.
