"WHAT are you talking about?" I was half asleep when my phone rang. In retrospect, I don't even remember it ringing. I only remember walking thru my dark house arguing with my husband on the phone. But after the hubs refreshed my memory, I remembered it went something like this....
"What are you talking about?"
"Come on, open the door, I wanna cuddle."
"Thats not nice hun, you know I miss you."
He must have been bored. After all, he was already one week into his business trip. But why he would call me and wake me up at 1:30 am?.... I just couldn't understand.
"Open the door..."
"What door? Stop it, your being mean...."
I was so warm and toasty under the covers and have a long history of holding full conversations in my sleep with NO recollection the next day... So I was completely baffled at his insanity...
But at this point, he lost his patience and his voice lost the sweetness that just ten seconds ago, wanted to hold me...
"OPEN THE STINKIN DOOR ITS COLD OUT HERE..."
So I stumbled thru my dark living room muttering a few whats??, come on's, and ughs... I quickly noted where the guns were in case this was a cruel joke by some unknowns.
I hold no prisoners....
But as my tippy toes lifted me to my peep hole, there before me was my hubby, in his white t-shirt, holding the phone to his ear.
I threw the door open in UTTER DISBELIEF...
and then threw my arms around him.
He was here... how? why?when?
we still had 2 weeks to go but I didn't care, I just held him tight...
He had rented a car and left straight from his last class and drove 9 long hours to spend a few hours with the ones he loved the most.
After about 5 minutes, he turned to me and said..
"So when did you actually wake up??"
I was still rubbing my eyes and wondered how the heck I ended up sitting on my bed watching my hubs brush his teeth... in our bathroom...
we did cuddle that night. And he told me how it all began. He had given me clues thru the last 2 days on the phone and thru his twitter but I didn't catch on.
I never expected him to do this.
The next morning I awoke to the whispers of my littles....
"Whos in bed with mommy??"
But their curiosity didn't last long as I threw the covers back and told them Daddy had surprised them for a weekend visit.
We had 24 of the best hours.
The day was beautiful.
We went on date
And cuddled all night...
But soon it was time for hit the road.
It was so nice to have him back.
And this sweet surprise will go down in our history books...
As one of the top 3 romantic things he has done for me.
What are the other 2??
Oh my goodness...
there isn't enough time in the day to write them right now...
But the sweet memories of them still brings a smile to my face.
