Justin's in the Dog House

Not really, but last night it seemed like it. The sad reality is that last night something happened that has happened only a handful of times in our 4 1/2 years of marriage- Justin and I slept in separate beds although we were in the same house.
The only times this has happened before has been for one of the following reasons:
1) Just after Justin's shoulder surgery he couldn't lay down flat so he slept in a recliner in the living room for a week.
2) When Macy was 8 months and I was deathly ill and recently knocked up, she would not sleep unless I was holding her, so we slept on the couch so I could prop my arms up on the arm rest. Not a fun few nights...
3) Our entire family of four was ill with a stomach bug so I slept holding Kylie and Justin slept in the other room with Macy. And by slept I mean, dozed between periods of one of the four of us vomiting or running to the bathroom for... other purposes.
4) And then a couple of times Justin slept in another room when Kylie was a newborn who liked to wake up multiple times a night and this was not conducive to Justin getting as much sleep as possible before his 4 a.m. flights.

That's it, really. I have to say, I am not a fan of not sleeping with my husband. There is no one to cuddle with, to help warm up the bed, to scratch me with his talon like toenails, no chance of making out once the kids are asleep. It really isn't a cool thing. So why did this rare event occur last night? Well, I have a lovely cold which prohibits me, and as a result, Justin from sleeping well. This would not do for he had to report at 6:00 in the morning to the recruiting office for the Air National Guard to take some see-if-you-are-smart-enough-to-fly-our-planes-without-killing-yourself-and-costing-the-government-14 million dollars-for-crashing-the-plane test.

He has been studying for weeks and hopefully once this test is over and he is able to apply to the units we have talked about, we can make some decisions about our future. Right now, everything is in limbo and I seriously despise Limbo.
So wish us luck as we try to plan our future....
And I am going to the fabric store in a couple of hours so if anyone else wants a banner, let me know soon! I am happy to ship or Justin may even be able to take some to Utah this weekend when he goes.
thanks all!

Lame...I wanted JUICE!

Just kidding. I'd much prefer you to be happily married, with a cold.
