Me and my big mouth…

by Rob on

You know it when you say something you don’t really mean, out of fun… to make others laugh and have a good time. And suddenly it gets a slight bitter taste.

Many will know that Marion and I have a so called “LAT” relation (Living Apart Together). The weekends we are mostly together, but throughout the working days we are not. A good situation we both support and are very happy with.

More than 4 weeks Marion has been sleeping next to me. The nights before our vacation to Lesvos, during our vacation and the days after our vacation.
It felt good, also the “special” nights (don’t ask :P).

And all the time I was bragging about how nice it would be to have the bed for me alone again… No one to bump into, all the spaces, blablabla…

And now the vacation is done and all returns to normal.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to change anything in the way Marion and I are living…. but the bed is suddenly very empty. Me and my big mouth….

Most will know that Marion is often during the week away for her work. Aside from that we have a so called LAT-relation (Living Apart Together). The result of this that we mostly only see each in the weekends (maybe it is a nice idea that Marion and I write some time an article about this, there are many things to such a relation as we have).

It is very normal for me to wake up once or twice during the night. And when that happen and Marion is asleep beside me, I always enjoy it to hear her breathing, soft in and out. And to watch her sleeping through the soft moonlight that flows in the our bedroom.
Maybe it is because we don’t see each every day that I still feel my blood flow in a little faster through my veins when I watch her like this.

Some times I can see that she is dreaming. Mostly she moves a little. Saying soft things that I cannot understand. But I can see she is relaxed. So all is good.
But every now and then she is more restless in her sleep. I am always afraid she is having a bad dream about memories from less good times. When that happens I always want to wake her up, but I am assured by experts that this would not be good. Luckily when it happens it is not very long and I am very happy to see her relax again.

When I look at her in the half dark of our bedroom I feel really happy to have her in my life and that already for a nice long time. One of the best things that ever happened in my life, that is for sure.

I always feel the need to cuddle her softly when I’m watching her sleep, which I don’t do because I don’t want to wake her up!
