And in Provo!
This IS glorious. Oh, I knew I missed him, but I kind of purposely trying to minimize it in my head to make it more tolerable. I spend a ton of time with him, and I'm so glad.
He still gets a surprised look on his face when I randomly exclaim "YOU'RE BACK! I'M SO GLAD!" Apparently even the cascade of letters I sent while he was gone was not enough to make him expect that.
Occasionally, if I think too hard about it, I get all teary-eyed. Teary eyes of joy.
"Was it really THAT bad when I was gone?"
"Yes," I responded.
I can talk to him WHENEVER I want. And even more exciting -- he can talk back whenever he wants. I can call him, text him, email him, visit him, hug him...
I'm so happy.
