Daily Temperature Reading, 3/17

Okinawa | March 17, 2016


Hey baby, I appreciate you calling and talking to me when you were driving home. I know you don’t like to drive and so it was nice of you to call me and talk to me. I also appreciate you telling me about the kids, your work and conference. I know I am not the one you normally think of telling me those things and that makes me sad and mad at myself, so thank you!

New Information:

D and I went to the pool, changed and then went to the gym. I am pretty sore, and FYI, DON’T have a big ass burrito and then decide to go to the gym later on…BAD combination. I got about 3/4 of the way done and had to sprint for the bathroom. Afterwards we came back to the room and he showered and I fell asleep in the chair. I was pooped. He then went to go get some food and started looking for his ID card and couldn’t find it. We called the front desk and looked around the room…We found it in the pool. Right on the edge by the ladder. whew! One crisis averted.


So I am still puzzled by what I am going to write you in the email. I have been thinking about it since we talked. I am going to have to make the plan very specific and you know I suck at that in general. BUT I am NOT going to screw that up. Oh, I am puzzled by why you called when I told you I was going to the pool. I left my phone plugged in at the room so it could charge. I am sorry I missed it, but I was NOT going to lose it here…I didn’t have anything but my room key.

Concerns with Recommendations:

I am concerned that you won’t think I am taking things seriously. I am. VERY seriously. I don’t want to keep pissing you off, or making you feel like you are on a roller coaster. I just want to have a great marriage with YOU. I am also concerned that whatever I send you in the email is not going to be enough. Now, I know that is pretty shitty of me to say before I have even written it, but my point is that I am pretty sure that whatever I write is not going to pass muster on the first iteration. Just keep in mind that I AM taking this serious and if you don’t like what you read let me know. I consider it a “work in progress”, or a living document. I know that a relationship takes work and that things and people change. So what I write is not going to be carved in stone … it WILL be a roadmap though, a template so that I can show you better my love for you.

Wishes, Hopes and Dreams:

I hope that you can sleep in and not worry about the kids getting up. I am about to call them and I DON’T want to hear your voice! You are supposed to be sleeping! Don’t worry about them making it to work on time, I will ensure they do. I hope that when you wake up you will have recovered some of your sleep you missed on that hard hotel bed. I love, love, love you and I will let you know when I am awake! love me
