I miss Brandon.

He's not here to tell me to come to bed. He's not in bed putting up with the lamp shining like the noon-day sun while I read to "unwind." He's not lying on his side with his back to me so I can't wrap my arm (yep, just the one--the other's always under my pillow so that I don't resent him for being the comfortable one) as I was saying...arm around him and then, in his sleep, he's not there to take my hand like he does. every night. except tonight. Because he's not here and I miss him. Very much.

Oh...I hate it when Tyler is gone too. I hope Brandon is home again with you soon.

What a sweet post. I'm so happy for you that you have a husband you love enough to miss like that. Dave leaves today for 5 days, and I'm already plotting about how I can arrange the pillows on the bed so that it might sort of feel like there's a body next to me. Not the same.

I'm sorry! I love that we have husband that we miss, it's sad when someone is excited when their spouse is gone.
