Lol. My husband was just home for two weeks. Then we took him to the airport so he could go back to work. We know that we'll see him again in ten weeks. It was a lovely two weeks, like we haven't had in a long time since we've had to live apart for his job. And he went on and on about how dissatisfied he was about how we were living, because he missed so much, and he didn't do anything but sit in his apartment and mope around, missing me and the kids and hoping to catch us at home on skype so he can see us for awhile. I kept saying that I know he goes out and that he spends a lot of time with friends, because I can't tell you how many times I'm talking to him and he says he has to go because he has a barbecue or a costume party to attend. And he kept disagreeing that this hardly ever happens and he maybe only has one friend out there who likes to throw parties, and that must be what I mean.
So, I woke up, and was alone, which felt a little sad since I really liked having him next to me over these past two weeks. I saw that it was only 1am his time, and decided to call just to tell him that I miss him, and maybe even tell him what naughty things I'd do if he were next to me. When I called there was an incredible amount of background noise. I asked where he was, and he said his friends had thrown him a welcome back party that was turning into an all night poker game. I shouted, "I knew it! I told you you're out there having fun! You don't sit in your apartment moping!" He laughed and said he wasn't always at parties, he just happened to be at a party now.
Hahaha. He's in for a rude awakening when he finally does get a job where he can be at home all the time. Our idea here of a party is a "juice party" we throw as part of potty training. (Everytime DS pees in the pot, we blow the noisemakers, wear our party hats, and ply him with more juice in the hopes of creating a repeat performance.) Not quite the mayhem I was hearing in the background of the phone.
I just talked to him, to see if maybe we could have a skype date tonight, and he said he was about to leave to meet his friends at this wing place because one offered to buy all the wings he (or any of the others) eats as long as he eats 10 wings that have been soaked in the super spicy ghost chili sauce. They are calling it the Ghost Chili Challenge and made a FB event for it. I told him to remember this the next time he comes home and tries to tell me that he's so lonely and all he does is mope around eating ramen. Hahaha.
