I truly have the best husband. He finds me in the house during the day (I usually work in the office) and his face lights up with joy. He’s been seeing me daily for over a decade, yet the happy surprise has never worn off. He says “I’m so happy you are here with me” several times a day.
For his birthday, I’m whisking him away to a remote location in the woods with no people for miles. I think this is his definition of paradise. People ask if I’ll mind being in isolation for several days, but I haven’t worked from home since June. I see so many people daily that I’m ready for a bit of a self-imposed lockdown.
