The Count Down


After over two years (aka 24 months,106 weeks, 741 days, 17,784 hours, 1,067,040 minutes, or a whole heck of a lot of seconds)The biggest wait of my life is almost over!!!! Charles comes home in less than a week, and then I'll stop making everyone else miserable with my obsessive count down. I'm not going to lie--I'm a bit nervous. I'm afraid that when Charles finally steps off the airplane on Wednesday, I'll have a heart attack or something. I've never come face to face with such a highly anticipated event before....so I don't know how my body will react. I DO know that my sleep has been affected. I think I lose an extra hour of sleep every night as it gets closer to his homecoming date. I probably won't get ANY sleep the night of the 16th, and when Charles sees me he'll probably want to run back to Canada--away from the Zombie woman.
Oh goodness, I'm so excited.

Let me know if the whole thing with losing an extra hour of sleep every night eventually turns into your days getting a few hours longer, you definitely need to let me in on it because I could sometimes use a few extra hours. And that's very exciting. Make sure someone has a camera, because I would like to see the look on your face! :)

If you want your days to be longer, all you have to do is wait for a missionary. =)Trust me, the days are never ending. I have time to do all I could ever want, and yet ironically enough all I want is to have Charles home. It's pretty miserable...haha.
