I used to jokingly say that the key to a successful marriage is getting up and leaving every morning. Despite spending just about every waking moment together for the past 2 years, I actually still kinda believe it. It’s hard to miss someone (or be missed) if you never leave.
Over the past few days, we’ve been staying at a hotel in El Centro in order to see some sights while we wait on the machine shop. Today, the engine was ready to be picked up and I spent the day starting the assembly. Angela and Bode toured downtown, while I went to Beto’s place to work.
When I returned, just as I was opening the door I could hear Bode yell ‘Dad!’ and then he ran over and gave me a big bear-hug and told me how much he missed me. Angela was right behind him with another hug and kiss. I don’t miss much about our old life, but I miss that.
