I know I won’t sleep well tonight, if at all. There are a few reasons. First, I’ve evidently hit a phase in my life where I can’t shut off my mind when it’s bedtime (and my mind is awful noisy). Second, Charlie is away on an assignment and, well, I just miss him. Last, and I’m dreading this one, I usually dream about 9/11 around the anniversary.
So I’ll be thinking of my sweetie, remembering, and wishing I could squeeze him tight.
I might also have a cocktail before bedtime (don’t judge).
Be good to those Marines, honey. You know what I mean. And if you don’t-- what I mean is, don’t scare the junior ones (think of the stories I’ve shared of me shaking in my shoes in court!).
We can’t wait until you’re home.
