I (heart) My Sailor

Well, just as I suspected, Hubby surprised me by coming home in the middle of my cleaning. It was a pleasant surprise though, and he even thought the house looked nice, to my great happiness! I am happy to report he "rewarded me" quite nicely before it was time to pick up Em from school. ;)

We surprised my oldest by having Daddy come with me to pick her up at school. She ran to him hism yelling "DAAAAADYYYYY!!" I felt tears in my eyes. When KAitlyn saw him after her nap, she had a similar reaction: "DADA DADA DADA!!" After we got Em, we headed to Wal-Mart, got a few things we needed, and headed home.

It's funny; when he came in the door, I got all excited. No, not that way, you perverts! The way I used to back when he was on boats before shore duty. It was nice to feel that way again about my husband. After nearly 3 1/2 years of him being home more often than he had ever been, I just wanted him..(cue my Moaning Myrtle voice) to go away. And then I started to miss him. And he came home. And I was happy! As much as it sometimes sucks to be in this lifestyle, I am glad I still get all fluttery and excited when he is about to come home.

Now, I am off to bed, to show Hubby how much I missed him some more! ;)

Enjoy your reunion!

And tell your sailor "thanks" for what he's doing. Though I am totally against this war, I know that our serviceman just doing their jobs, and I support them. (Speaking as an ex-Army soldier here...)

I too am an ex-Army soldier - Viet Nam. I am very happy the American people now SUPPORT the service people - no matter how they feel about the war. They deserve all the respect and support they can get - not to mention a hell of a lot more pay!
