He went to work at 4:30 am so I didn't see him in the morning. At noon I went to the church for craft and hobby day. I multi-tasked while I was there and cooked pork for pulled pork to feed the teens at their Life Night the next day. After everyone left at 6:30 pm, my mom and I shredded the pork so I wouldn't have to do it on Sunday.
My mom came home with me to have soup I had in the crock pot. I sat with my husband for 1/2 hour (don't blink or you'll miss it) in Pooh Corner. My kids had friend over and were hootin and hollerin over their video games in the family room. My mom came into Pooh Corner and we started talking and my husband went to bed.
He worked a few hours the next morning, then went to an enduro race to help his friend in the pit crew. He called me to report their progress a few times and we chatted on the phone for 15 minutes.
I went off that evening and fed the teens. I came home. He came home an hour later and we went to bed.
We were giggling in bed about being an old married couple and not needing to see each other all weekend. It's not really the case for us, we are usually together most weekends. We aren't necessarily doing the same thing, but there is a comfort knowing the other person is around. But getting to the place where we are an old married couple has been a joke we've had for years because of what our neighbors said to us many years ago. When we had been in our house a year or so, the electricity went out for several days. It was winter and pretty cold. We didn't have any kids to worry about, so we bought a new down comforter and just snuggled up at night to stay warm.
Well our neighbors had been married 10 years. They said "Oh, well, you two are newly married and still snuggling. You won't do that after you've been married for a while." We laughed at that, and were thinking how strange it was that even in the freezing cold with no electricity, they wouldn't keep each other warm. We vowed it would never happen to us. It hasn't.
Needless to say the neighbor's marriage didn't last. It's been a joke of ours for many years about being an old married couple every time something odd happens, like not seeing each other all weekend.
It's the little things that make you remember why you married a person; like feeling that empty place when you don't see each other most of the weekend.
