He's Home!!

Whew. It's been a long 5 days.
Dennis had to go to Utah for his nephew's funeral.
He gave the eulogy.
I'm always sad when I can't go with him.

I especially missed him at night.
Our bed seemed way too big.
I practically got lost in it without him.



But now he is home, and so are his little trails:


He unpacks in the playroom, thanks to our friend Jo Rhodus.
She says we should never bring our suitcase into our bedroom.
Does he put his shoes away in our closet? No of course not.
He likes them right here by this garbage can in his office.

He likes to keep his coat draped right here over this chair.

He likes the bathroom down the hall better than ours.


I'd recognize those feet anywhere.

Welcome home Honey.
I missed you terribly.

Look what he brought home for me.
I can't wait to listen to it today.
Sung by my very favorite choir!

I am glad he got back safely. I am sorry about his nephew. That must have been hard. I missed seeing him at Ashley's wedding.

I missed him too at Ashley's wedding. But I also missed you Karen. I know you were there but we didn't get any real time to talk :((

What a sweet post. It's always the little things that we miss most, isn't it? Although, I must confess that since my divorce I have really enjoyed having that king-size bed all to myself!

Craig leaves a similar trail like Dennis. I hadn't thought of it before but I really like Jo's idea of not taking the suitcase in the bedroom. I think I will try that after Craig's trip. I'm sorry Dennis had to endure the smoggy weather here. Has he warmed up yet? Thanks for sharing the pictures of his trail. It makes me feel right at home :-)

Jill...I forgot to tell you to let me know how you like that cd.

I really missed talking to you too Jill. Those two days were crazy. I can't believe it all happened. I am so happy for her. Anyway, we are going to have to schedule a time for talking. Oh, and how is Cami? I was so upset that I didn't get to see her.

You have a beautiful bed!

Kris said...

Jill, you're always so sweet. You notice the little things and I love that. It was fun to see these pictures.

What a cute post about missing your husband. I can definitely relate. (Sorry to hear about his nephew, by the way. That is always so difficult to lose a younger relative.)

Are you going to give us a review of Heavensong? I didn't even know about this CD. I wonder if it's on iTunes. I'll have to go check it out.

=)

Did you get that bedspread at Penney's home store? I almost bought it or one very similar...

Welcome Home to your husband! I know exactly how you feel, Jill, it's almost like something inside us just stands still until we are reunited.
Enjoy your music and enjoy your husband!
All the best,
Eileen

I'm so sorry, I got so wrapped up in the later part of your post that I forgot to extend my condolences in my comment, I'm very sorry for your loss.
All the best,
Eileen

I'm sorry to hear about his nephew. I'm glad the trip went okay and he's back home with you.

Your bedroom is beautiful! And the fact that your husband preers a different bathroom is so funny. It sounds like my husband. :)

Jill said...

Robin...I've had the bedspread for awhile. I think I did get it at JCPenneys but I'm not sure.

This was very sweet and fun to read. It's fun to see little glimpses into your marriage.
My condolences for the loss of Dennis' nephew.

At first I thought the post was funny. Of course not the part about the funeral of his nephew. I think the fact that he was delivering it meant that he played a huge role in his nephew's life.

The thought came to me that all the little things you & Dennis do (like in this post) would be such a neat thing for your posterity to know. The little things add up to mean great and wonderful things, you know what I mean?
