Reconciliation – Day 8 (Reflexes)

August 8th, 2013
When I awoke at 6:36 my husband was already awake and searching for clothes suitable for job interviews. When he found the shirt he was looking for, I ironed it as he requested.

Reconciliation – Day 7 (Precautions)

August 7th, 2013
My husband stirred at exactly 7:30 and I said “time to get up”,  but I was sure he was getting up anyway. I had been up since maybe 6:50. He got up to get ready to go. I struggled between what I wanted to do, felt I should do, and what I felt like doing.

Reconciliation- Day 1 (Arrival)

August 1st, 2013
My husband arrived around 4pm. He walked in because the door was unlocked. I was cleaning the freezer. I dropped what I was doing and hugged him with my arms around his neck. We took all our 5 kids and went to Ruby Tuesday. I wanted nothing off that menu and everything was too expensive to pick something I was almost sure I wouldn’t like.
