Sweet reminders of my guy when he is away

At work, most of us have lockers that are on wheels. Many folks who get moved from one software development team to another tend to roll their lockers closer to where they sit.

In my case, I have been practically on every team that you can imagine. My locker has always remained where it currently is. I can't be bothered rolling it.

The other day, I decided to do some spring cleaning. I waited until most folks were out of the area, so I could go through everything and toss out items that I no longer needed.

I felt good after I was done. I didn't need to keep resumes that I had printed out of prospective candidates. I decided to take some tea out of my locker and place it on my desk. They are tea flavours that both my guy and I purchased.

My guy's thoughtfulness appears in my locker. I have many teas that he had brought back from his travels to Istanbul, Dubai, and Chennai. I also have a couple of his training guides. Unfortunately, our company still likes printing out training manuals, so he can't share his soft copy of the materials.

I miss my guy already, but appreciate his gifts to me. He is always thinking of me when we are apart. I am thankful that he is in my life.

He told me that he got me the purple sheep plush toy so that I could cuddle it like I do with him. He does help. As always, the real deal is always best.


  1. It's nice that your company provides movable lockers for employees, CB...many companies just make you box up everything every time you move. I bet you do have a nice supply of different teas. Cuddle with your purple sheep until your guy gets back. If he wears aftershave or cologne, you might try getting his brand and putting just a tad on your sheep...scent is a strong reminder. :)

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. I remember your suggestion of getting aftershave on an old shirt, which will remind me of my guy when he is away. My purple sheep is a lovely reminder of him, even though he doesn't smell like him right now. =)
