I need you to come home now...for longer than the one or two nights you'll be home before you leave me again.
I have a lot of reasons:
I'm cold all of the time, especially my feet, and I need you to keep them warm.
I need you to rub my back, because it's been hurting a lot. So much a lot that a customer at work felt the need to tell me that I was walking crooked and he knew a good surgeon who could fix me.
I cried through the entirety of Grey's Anatomy because you weren't here to mock it...or me for that matter.
I stay up too late and as a result sleep in and am late to work nearly every single day.
And I stay up too late because the bed...it's too big for just one person.
The shower door hasn't been squeegeed (is that even a word?) in at least a day and there are hard water spots now.
I randomly pick clothes from your side of the closet that I think need washing and I wash them. I washed and ironed the pants you wore to church...they're hanging nicely in the closet now.
I cleaned out the fridge and it's empty now...I need you to help me fill it.
I've worn a different jacket out of your closet every day since you've been gone...I need you to come home so that I can show you which one is my favorite.
(Dear Friends, you should know that my husband could be gone 6 months and I could still wear a different jacket every day...that's how many he has.)
But mostly I just need you to come home because I miss you.
I know you're having fun out there in the wilderness...with your buddies and your beef jerky...and all of your fancy gear...
Just remember you have a wife at home...
I know it's a foreign concept seeing as how we've only been married a few weeks really...
I hope you haven't been caught in a flash flood...
Or been eaten by a cougar (because remember when I heard a cougar scream in the same place you are now?)
Or starved from lack of food...because seriously Husband, you didn't take very much food, and you didn't' have one single Jolly Rancher...I'm kind of worried.
Just one more thing: every time my cell phone rings I hope it's you telling me you ended your trip early...and I'll be anxiously awaiting your call on Saturday night.
I still love you...even though I don't really remember what you look like.
