Today was the day. My handsome hubby left me. No, not for good (hopefully) just for a 10 day trip to Brazil with his Executive MBA class. He has many grand adventures awaiting him - tours of several businesses and other.....business like stuff. Oh, I'm sure he'll have some free time while he's there to hang on the beach, sipping some virgin drinks, checkin' out the....scenery :) Actually, it doesn't sound like they'll have much free time, and he'll be spending most of it updating their class blog (check it out!)- and I'll spend all of my free time hovering over the computer to wait for said updates. He's been gone for 7 hours and already I'm missing him uncontrollably. Just between you, me, and whoever else is still reading at this point - we've never been apart for more than 3 or 4 days since we've been married. So, I'm wallowing in self-pity. I hope to keep too busy to wallow much, though. Besides, absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?
We went with him to the airport to drop him off. I brought my camera because it's a great object to hide my teary eyes behind. Thankfully the pictures turned out clear, even if my eyes were blurry.
We couldn't pass up a quick pic with Mr. Moose. My very observant 4 year old was sure to point out that he wasn't a real moose. Whoa. It was a shock to be sure. I was pretty sure he was real. I still think he kinda is....
Trying to kill some time...watching the airplanes board and the little guys driving those funky carts around. Can you guess how I acheived this silhouette look? Did you read my last post? ;)
The girls liked watching the planes - oblivious that they are supposed to have been bawling their little eyes out at the thought of being home alone with mom for 10 days. Oh, the horror!! ;)
Soon the time was drawing near for him to board. Many hugs were given. And I did not cry, or blubber, or lose it. Really. At least, not too badly. And not in front of him. Much. I'm a big girl and this is no big deal. We'll all be fine. Seriously. Wah!
...and then he was gone. I missed him the moment he was out of my sight. Who am I kidding, I missed him before that. We have both been leaning on one another a lot lately, and have opened up to one another in a very deep way through the last few weeks. I'm going to miss that for the next ten days...He'd better email me....a lot.... a super duper lot!
