Mile High IceCream Pie

My work partner and I had a couple of hours to spare so we decided to go to Applebee's and snack on some appetizers.  We were looking over the menus when we saw a picture of this delicious looking dessert... decadent, peanut buttery, chocolate ice cream with an Oreo crust and whipped cream top.  

I mean... could you give this up?  The temptation was too much for both of us and we DIVED into this chocolaty deliciousness.  As I was stuffing my face, I started to feel guilty because I wasn't able to share this dessert with my DH (not that he would eat it... he's on a diet, the fatty =P).  But I was feeling sad because we weren't able to share something so simple as a plate of dessert because he's so far away.  I feel cheated out of the quality time that I am able to spend with him in this lifetime.  Sure, it's only a year but it's a year more than the civilians who get to spend all their time with one another.  It's 365 days more than the other military spouses who are lucky enough to have their partners at home.

I honestly thought about the math in this way: If another military spouse and I got married on the same day, and everyone died on the same day, then she would have gotten to spend one more year with their spouse than I got to spend with my DH.  I know, it's a bit morbid but I guess I just calculated in this way because it helps to illustrate my jealously.  

I definitely think that I should just stop eating desserts because the guilt of not being able to share it with my spouse will help me from gaining anymore weight!
