So last night I got a text from my soldier saying that he would be home today between 3-5pm. I was ecstatic! Luckily a good friend came over and kept me company last night as she knew I was so anxious for M to be home. I could barely sleep I was so excited. This morning I work up super early and cleaned the house. I showered and put on my welcome home outfit and that's when the trouble all started. So here is my list of things not to do on the day your hubby comes home
1. I have lost about 8 pounds since M left. My clothes fit differently and I was very excited to wear this long black maxi dress I had picked up specifically to wear on the day I welcomed M home. Go figure that today of all days I was hit with a bout of insecurity. I put on the dress, checked myself out in the mirror and all I could stare at was how my arms looked like fat sausages in this dress. I have always had bigger muscular arms and have hated wearing tank tops since I can remember. This dress had a halter style top which I feel increases the bulk of my arms.I tried on other dresses and outfits but went back to the black maxi dress. Luckily at work today everyone told me how thin and amazing I looked so that cheered me up
2. Don't try out a new hair style hours before going to meet your hubby. About a month ago I had wanted to cut my hair into a version of Tori Spelling's A-line cut. My stylist did a modified version and I loved it. So today I told her to take the back up a few inches more, leave all the length in the front and layer the back so that it has volume and body so that people could get the full effect of the hair cut. Well she did take the back up a few more inches but she also layered my whole head leaving me with a shaggy layered hair cut that frames my face. Not the cut I wanted at all. Luckily it's not too short and it will grow out fast but its not the way I wanted my hair to look when I saw the hubby for the first time in 4 months.
3. Don't eat Mcdonalds. Since I worked this morning and went straight to a hair appt I didn't have much time to eat. When I don't eat my blood sugar gets low and I need to eat. Since I was supposed to run to the tailor's and pick up my altered bridesmaid dress I quickly stopped at mcdonalds to eat quick. I was semi good and got a grilled chicken sandwich but also ate all the fries that came with my meal leaving me feeling disgusted and bloated
After leaving the tailor's I was on my way home when I number showed up on my screen that I hadn't seen in months. The hubby was home. After being debriefed, unlaoding pallets and doing inventory I will be able to go pick up the hubs. Now i have to sit and wait. I can't wait to run into his arms and hug him!!
