So here I am technically on day 1. And I wake up cranky. Gr. But to my credit when he got home 2 hours late last night - I felt compassion instead of the desire to be pissy and take it out on him. When I got the text that he was going to be late again, my first feelings were anger...but I reminded myself of my mission and just told him I was sad and missed him.
This morning I just woke up cranky. And it didn't start out well. He didn't get his first class greeting right away, but I sent him off with a yummy packed lunch and good kiss good-bye. He won't be home until very late tonight but I'll make sure to tell him how lucky I feel to be his wife.
In the meantime, I plan to get my daily reading time in with "The Power of the Praying Wife". That has really been helpful too.
