fun and flirty.
It’s 12:47am and I’ve just tumbled into bed after a long day of being a single parent. I’m the only one in our bed tonight. Mike is off on a business trip and I have just gotten off the phone with him.
I realize that it’s been the first day of the flirting adventure and I’ve not said a single flirty thing. Awesome.
Fifteen minutes earlier I had texted Mike, fairly confident that he was already asleep, he had called earlier when I was putting the kids to bed and had family prayer with us. Since then I’ve been straightening and getting ready for tomorrow.
We talked briefly on the phone, catching each other up on our day, the craziness of being home as a single parent with four kids and the excitement of him meeting with teachers across the state and seeing the difference they’re making in the lives of their students. He listens to the antics here at home and I hear him tell me about the strides that have been taking place with teachers.
We are both exhausted. We pray. Say our goodnights and hang up, planning to talk in the morning.
No flirting. Just the run down of the day goes through my mind as I climb into bed.
Now, I text him just to see if he’s still awake so that I don’t wake him if he is already sleeping.
He answers my text.
I write: Flirty text on it’s way to you.
For the next few minutes we send qippy, happy, inside-joke-types-of-flirty-texts back and forth to each other.
We say good night.
I turn off the light and realize that I’m smiling….and that I miss him more than I thought. He is my favorite person in the entire world. He knows me the way no one else knows me. We have jokes that only the two of us get and he knows just how to make me feel funny, fun, beautiful, and sexy.
Usually, when he goes away on a trip our phone calls consist of catch up. This is our day. How was yours? We aren’t trying to skip the flirty-ness it just kind of happens when you’re trying to keep everything going and exhaustion has set in.
For the next few days we constantly send flirty texts back and forth to each other. It made me love and adore my husband more…and look forward to his return home with greater anticipation.
If you haven’t tried a little flirting…you’re missing out. Worried your husband is going to want you ALL. THE. TIME.? Or that your wife is going to think you’re nothing but a raging ball of testosterone? Or have you just not heard about the Flirting adventure?
So…what’s with the picture of the metal box at the top of this post? If you’ve already been doing a little flirting…you may want to take it up a notch with this metal box idea. I think we are going to start our own (it’s never too late, right?) and give it as a wedding present to all of the newlyweds we know.
