There's also something about warm spring weather to inspire one to a little self improvement. The weather being nice enough to walk and get a little outdoor excercise...the warmer weather also implores me to eat a little lighter...enjoying more fruits and veggies and to drink more water. As much as I miss the Commander, I realize that these final months apart can be viewed as a small gift to myself. A time to renew, and really devote to ME. Taking care of ME. Preparing myself for a time when I can again take care of HIM. I do miss taking care of HIM though. Lately he's been sujected to microwaved meals and working so hard to get the house ready for my arrival. The other day he told me the neighbor across the street came by with some homemade Carrot Cake, and I was so grateful for her kind gesture. I can't wait to get up there though and start taking care of my own husband again.
