Must share my toys again

My grass-widow days are weaning to a close. Hubby was supposed to arrive at the airport this afternoon, but just as my front tires were still on the driveway and the back tires were on the road, he called to say they'd missed their connection flight. If they were lucky they might be arriving around 8pm tonight.

So much for getting off work early ....

On the flip-side - I've enjoyed my solitude. I was a single adult for over 20 years before the hubby came along, and all but 3 years of that I didn't have roommates. So even though we've been married for almost 7 years now, I still miss my alone times. Hubby is a real introvert, so getting the house to myself is a very rare commodity. If he's not at work, then he's home or out with me.

I am looking forward to having him home again. I need someone to take the trash out.

Ok, ok - it's more than that, and you and I know it. I love his company, I love his friendship, and I love him.

Lets hope he doesn't miss anymore flights today.

I grew up as an only child and after a brief marriage was a single mom for several years. I understand your need to have alone time. Bill rarely travels for work these days and we have 2 teenaged girls, so my alone time often comes late at night. Last night I stayed up past midnight just to get some "me" time. It was just enough and will last me until next weekend.
