Are you reading my headline correctly?
Yes. You are.
I want my husband to leave.
I want him to leave today.
I want him to leave as soon as possible.
I want him to go away and not come back until Saturday night.
Why, you might ask? Well...
He's going on a men's retreat!!! And I love when he does that. It's not that I don't love my husband in fact, it's because I love him so much that I want him to go on this men's retreat.
He's going to come back home a better man, a better Christian, husband and father.
He's going to come home strengthened and encouraged, and even more fired up.
He's going to come home more appreciative of me. Why? Because hotel rooms are lonely without me even though he's with a bunch of guys.
He's going to come home ready to eat a late dinner that I make. (He loves my cooking.)
He's going to take a warm shower and then get in bed and snuggle up with my head on his chest while we watch Fox News "The Five."
He's going to gently rub my back while we watch TV, and think about oh how much he missed me.
He's going to be so incredibly glad he went on the men's retreat and grateful to come home at the same time.
Yes, I want my husband to leave! It's in both our best interests.
Ladies: support your husbands in getting away with the guys! Don't even give them a hint of an attitude that you'd rather they not go. They pick up on it even if you say you don't mind, if your attitude betrays your words, they notice. You can guilt your husband into staying home, and you know what? You do yourself no favors. He will be a better man for having spent a little time away.
Have a great time, babe! I so glad you left, but I can't wait til' you come back home to me.
