In short, they stole his soul.
I'm not kidding. There were times when I felt like the person I married was missing and someone else had taken over his body. He didn't laugh as much. He didn't smile as much. He wasn't as affectionate as usual. He got upset with me so easily. He spent all of his free time in the cave man.
For a while, I felt so alone. I would come home from work and sit alone for about an hour before LoLo would even come home. And even when he did, sometimes he wouldn't even come upstairs to say hi for another half an hour or more.
But for the last month, it feels like my husband has returned. He watched the Kardashians with me the other night. Sitting immediately next to me on the couch. Not on the loveseat. This is huge. I can see his energy coming back. He asks how my day was before I can even ask about his. Last night, I came home and dinner was ready.
After dinner, we were sitting together and I said, "LoLo, jump in the photo booth with me!" meaning the photo booth on my Mac. We started taking pictures together and just couldn't stop laughing. I haven't laughed that hard with him in so long. It felt so good.
These pictures are ridiculous. But I'm still going to post them. Because you may remember, yesterday I said that us bloggers are always posting pretty pictures and never the less perfect, less posed, less primped pictures. Well, I'm going to walk the walk, people.
|OMG such a creeper!!! (this is the picture that sent me into a major fit of laughter)|
And finally, I'd just like to wish my grandmother a very happy, happy birthday. Every year, she gets a year younger so this is probably her 30th birthday! I love you Gumma!!!! (This is how I said "grandma" when I was little...and now everyone calls her that. I know, I'm a trend setter.) I hope this birthday brings you lots of cake, new clothes, bags, shoes, gift certificates to IHOP, and a trip to the mall to pick out your present from Papa.
