I had such a busy day on Saturday– a little one trying to get over the flu, running errands and getting ready for Captain America to come home. When I finally got back in the house, I wanted to crash so bad. I laid in bed while the kids played, watching my guilty pleasure, L&O: SVU.

I get up to feed my kids and notice I got a text message. “Hey, how are you?”. Me and Captain America frequently exchange text messages, IMs and emails as a way for us to stay as close as possible while he is in Baghdad.I started to text back some information he had asked me for a few days ago. He cut me off and said, “Just give it to me in person. Pick me up in an hour”.

I couldn’t believe it– the love of my life was coming home early! He apologized for not being able to surprise me the way he wanted to (he wanted to just show up at the door), but he couldn’t find any one to bring him to the house.I was (and still am) in love– I just stared at him and kept saying “I can’t believe you are here!” and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I was missing him soooooo much that day and just wanted to be near him. We hadn’t talked in a few days, because his interner was down, as it frequently does over there.

Just wanted to share 🙂
