I was incredibly sad he had not added a sticky note with a hello on it or written a heart on the envelope. He used to do this when we were dating. He would doodle lovely images all across the blank paper of the long letters he'd send me. But, we were less busy back then.
The day I received my envelope, I had called him about a light indicator on the car (it was normal for mom's car) and he referred me to the owner's manual. GREAT little tool for finding out odd things in a car. Later, at the end of the day, I was on the beach of Cook Inlet and felt I wanted to talk to someone. The only one I knew was available (I had already called Kel, I was curious about the people fishing) was The Craftsman. Thankfully, he wasn't getting ready for bed yet. I prattled on for most of the conversation. I am missing talking to people, but I really should have let him share about the world he is a part of. However, I hate long blank pauses in a phone call.
He did say he was thinking about me and missed me and he is still finding notes I hid (I didn't think I hid that many!!!). He didn't say why he missed me, though. It was out of his box, but, I'm pretty sure it was cuz I wasn't there. His lunch wasn't made yet and most of the late chores I did weren't done yet. Life works better when jobs are shared. Even if those people sharing don't communicate very often!
