WIFEING

Wifeing: showering one's husband with attention and doing the little things that wives do for husbands (e.g. feed, clothe, clean, and take care of)

The thing that's been hardest these last two months is not wifeing. I love wifeing. At least while my husband was gone I could send letters and treats and tokens of affection. When the mail stopped, I stopped being able to properly wife. It kills me that I can't do anything for my husband right now. I can't even open his foot locker! I have all of this wifeing building up inside of me that I won't get to use for another three weeks.

I have to keep reminding myself not to smother Red 6. I'm not his wife. If he'd let me, I'd be washing all of his laundry, sewing his uniforms, and being glued to his hip. At least he lets me cook for him, but only when I beg him.

I just want my husband home so I can wife him.

1 I know what you mean. He hasn't even been gone 48 hours, and I have already sent one letter, and one order of DVDs from amazon. This year is so going to suck, but you have been a great inspiration over the last few months, so I know that I will be fine. And in a few weeks you will be back up and wifeing again!

5 I can see the headlines now: "OIF II Officer returns home to be wifed to death". I can imagine it's going to be real hard for you to let Russ out of your sight (at least for awhile) once he does get home. That blackout time must be really difficult and I empathize for you.
