I got a call that they were arriving early, so I raced out of the house at 4:25. Guess what? More delays. We just got home, at 10:45.


But the look on my husband's face when Charlie tackled him in the kitchen was priceless.

On Tuesday, my husband apparently told his roommate in Iraq, "Do you know what this is?" His buddy said, "Your uniform?" My husband said, "The uniform my wife's gonna peel off of me tonight."

Yeah, three days later, he's still wearing that exact same uniform. Ewww.

We solved the mystery of where he's been all week. The story is too horrible and annoying to repeat.

But it doesn't matter anymore.

He's home.

It's over at last!

You don't have to tell us anything more.

I am so happy for you and your husband.

I hope you two have one of your best weekends ever.

After the last week, the pendulum's gotta swing the other way!

Upon return from my 1st deployment, (way back in 98) I spent a few hours going through photographs and telling the stories behind them to my wife.

That time could have been MUCH better spent (which would have left us both spent.)

My point is, Get off the damn computer. Take that hiatus. Stay nekkid for a week. Order delivery. (Begrudgingly) throw on a robe when the delivery guy comes. (Or don't bother.)

You have MUCH better things to do than tell us what you're doing.

This applies to knitting, too... unless you're knitting a new thong out of licorice ropes.

most excellent news, it was starting to feel like watching honey exit a bottle.

speaking of honey, use in small amounts. It can be like glue....

I clicked on your blog with a knot in my stomach, hoping so much he was home. And now I have a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. I am so happy for you. Have a wonderful, enjoyable reunion. You deserve every moment of happiness.
