My husband being on a business trip turns my brain into useless mush

My husband has been on a business trip since Monday, and the adult in me would like to point out that I’ve been responsible. The other 90% of me needs that 10% to sit down and remember how often we listened to that Meghan Trainor song while eating candy.

I’ve cleaned, I’ve read a ton of Jane Austen, stared at old photos of my husband, and even written a little bit of husband fanfiction.

It’s gotten pitiful, but he threw me a bone. Of course, I made it weird. I always make it weird.

I'll be home

I’m starting to wonder why he likes coming home at all. I basically stalk, harass, and otherwise act like a fan. I don’t think it’s normal wife behavior to wish you could draw better so you could draw illustrations of your husband dressed up as different Jane Austen heroes, but there it is.  That’s how I love. In the creepiest, grossest way possible. Apparently he likes it.

He’s probably just REALLY gratefully I’m not a talented artist of any kind because if I was, there would be many portraits of him in full regency swagger, complete with cravat and smolder.

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 2 (here goes nothing)

Yesterday went a little easier than I expected, and I feel like I’ve got the hang of this now. Same as yesterday, I’d like to thank Krista Kemp again for nominating me for this challenge so I could play this fun game. It’s been more fun than I thought.

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Publish 3 quotes on 3 consecutive days on your blog.  The quote can be one of your own, from a book, movie, or from anyone who inspires you.
  • Nominate 3 more bloggers to carry on this endeavor.

          Quote For Day 2:

~Captain Wentworth in Persuasion by Jane Austen

My nominees for Day 2 are:

Sarah at Problems with Infinity

Evan at Beyond the Edge of Reality!

Cled at Henry and Lee

Has anyone else picked up on a theme in my quotes? I have romance on the brain I think. *sigh* Jane Austen has thoroughly rotted my brain.
