It's going to be a long week

Gary left yesterday around 3:15pm to go to New Hampshire and stay at the house of one of the guys going on the trip to Florida. They were flying out of Manchester at 5am this morning and thought that staying up late and drinking the night before would be conducive to getting out bed bright-eyed and bushytailed this morning. Yeah - -right. The first call came in at 7:45 this morning...

7:45 CALL
Me: (dropping phone, then picking it up)shit..damn.. ..hello?

Him: Hi Hon - are you awake?

Me: I am now. What's up?

Him: Oh... nothing. I just wanted to see if you were up yet.

Me: Well, I was sleeping but I'll get up now. Where are you?

Him: New Jersey on our layover. Well, gotta go. I'll call you later.

10:00am
Cell phone ringing
Me: Hello?

Him: Hi Hon - any messages? How's things going?

Me: No messages and everything is fine.

Him: Okay then, I'll call you later.

12:30pm

Me: Hello?

Him: Just checking in. We are on the highway down to Okechobee in a piece of shit minivan. What are you doing?

Me: Heading home from the Dollar Store. There are no messages and everything is good.

Him: Okay then. I'll call you later

He misses you so..and it's nice to see him so in love with idea of being with you.
Any good deals at the Dollar Store? Our's up here sucks. I find more at TJMaxx than anywhere.
You will have a long week and "the lines of communication" will be better than ever...if you haven't disconnected your cell by then.
Enjoy your opportuniy for quality time with Hannah and have a great week. Post a lot! And try to take some down time for yourself! Kisses Sheri!

That just can't be healthy. LOL

If my husband called once while he was gone with the boys for a week, I'd be counting my lucky stars for hearing from him at all.

Some men -- they sure are different!
