Sans Mon Mari

This fine specimen of a man is currently in Portland, OR. A place I've never been to. He's speaking at a conference on research that he and other men in the USU Business Intelligence Group completed. Apparently, he gets to present for 10 minutes to LOTS of computer smart people. He's so smart and I'm so proud of him! He said that he's going to look like this young teenager up on that stand and all those in attendance will think, "Wow. He sure is young. Does he really know what he's talking about?" Michael looks young, just like his wife. We'll love this years from now. 

Anyway, he's gone until late Thursday night and I missed him before he even walked out the door. We've not been apart like this, in different cities, since right after we were married. First was for work training in Denver and second was for our reception in Louisiana (he flew and I drove). Both times were almost week long absences. Even though this is only two days, I'm missing him ALOT! We're pretty attached to each other. He's the only thing that's keeping me sane in these last few weeks of college. Love that boy.

Oh well, I'm comforted that he's safe and pampered with continental breakfast, gourmet meals, swimming pool, free cable and hot water for 2 days. I sent him off this afternoon with a little brown bag lunch, full of a homemade turkey sandwich, banana, and a message scribbled on the front of the bag. He looked at it, smiled a HUGE smile, and ran right over and planted a big one on me. And there was some hugging in there too. He appreciates that I take care of him. And who wouldn't want to be sweet to him, when he's so sweet to me? (Plus, look at that face, pretty cute!) Okay, I'll stop being mushy so you can all stop gagging now.

Guess I'll just take advantage of this time alone and get some important things finished. Internship applications...so close it's almost painful. CILs, same story. Write a song in a week for the USUMTSA Songwriting Competition because I was basically told to do it by Maureen (dept. head)...why not?

I kinda sound like Superwoman. Oooo....I like it.


  1. Um... You are superwoman. I'm glad you have finally realized it!

    By the way... just the other day I was talking to someone about GPS' and I had a good time reminiscing about the one time I was with you guys and we "left the open seas!" It almost made me get a GPS.

  2. Hahaha. I remember that...if you ever do get a GPS, you'll definitely have to make sure you listen to the pirate voice. It's the best. I just love you Chelsea!

  3. I was asked today at work (by a guest speaker) if I was really a teacher because I looked like a senior. I don't like the fact that I look young...at least not 7 years younger than I actually am :) so I know the feeling! Hope you enjoy this alone time to do some girly stuff, even though it stinks not having your hubby around!

  4. Becca,

    There was no gagging, just a simple smile and a nod of acknowledgement. Y'all are adorable.
