I had an entirely different plan for my post today, BUT I just can’t pass this up. I’m cracking up and CAN’T share this on Facebook right now…which is DRIVING ME NUTS! I mean…come ON…I share my entire life on Facebook…but for this very moment, I must keep a secret.
It’s Saturday. I’m currently sitting in the Phoenix airport, double fisting a cup of coffee and a Shakeology. I just arrived to surprise my BFF at something special tomorrow evening. Because I know that she lives in Facebook too, I have to be elusive. Hence my dilemma and changing of today’s post…
As you may know, my hubby just returned from his deployment one week ago today. We’ve spent the past week really without a routine. We had actually planned it that way…just get used to being around each other again…BUT because I’m a schedule-kind-of girl, it’s been a challenge.
Anyways, so I’ve officially been away from home for 5 hrs now.
I just called Keith to let him know that I’ve arrived safely.
His first words to me were “Wow…being home is HARD! How do you do this?”
I said…”Huh? What’s up? It’s Saturday.”
Well, in the 5 hours of my absence, he has accomplished the following things:
- He missed giving our son his morning medication.
- He almost caused a fire when he forgot about the lizard heat lamp that he put on the plastic table.
- He got us “dinged” on our internet…basically slowing us down even worse than dial-up. (You GO, babe! I’m not there and don’t need it. )
Yes, gotta admit…I felt a twinge of vindication that he realized it was HARD to hold down the fort while he was gone for a year.
4. He spent an hour looking for his sunglasses because he wanted to go outside and didn’t want the blowing sand to get in his eyes. Then he realized that we don’t have sandstorms in Florida. (Yea, I totally giggled on this one.)
I told him that I was going to go find Wifi and catch up on some coaching. He replied…”Ok, good…you’ll have Wifi, so I can email you or Skype you if I need you.”
To which I replied…”Ummmmm…DUDE…you can CALL me!!!!!”
I then asked to speak to our son and kindly asked him to take care of Daddy these next couple of days.
****Monday morning addendum: My hubby just woke me up…5am here, 8am there. I think he’s ready for me to come home. He informed me that he needs to get a carpet cleaner today.
Hmmmm…why, babe? I just had the carpet cleaned before you came home. To which he replies…No, it’s to get the water out of the carpet in the hall.
Turns out my son clogged the toilet last night. Yea, you moms out there are rolling your eyes and know what I’m gonna say next…the hallway is now SOAKED!!!!!
I don’t know…homelife vs the desert in Afghanistan…which one is more difficult to maneuver?
