Just kidding. He didn't saddle up his horse.
But he did leave.
& i kissed him goodbye with a radiant smile and waved till he was out of sight.
Just kidding. i sat on his lap and cried till we were both covered in mascara.
(You can't win 'em all, can you?)
After he left i pulled up my socks (except i wasn't wearing any)... and i cleaned my house. i called all the little ones together and we took turns playing dj, sweeping, tidying, scrubbing and dancing with the baby.
i had to take off my sweater i got so warm - and pretty soon, i didn't even miss him a bit.
Except that i did.
