Well, ok, it feels like i might pee a little from the excitement.
Dh will be home Tuesday from his first On the road job as a truck driver. He left Monday morning and i miss him like crazy right now. He was supposed to be home today, but they gave him an extra run through Cali. So, Tuesday it is. Im planning a solo date night with just me and him, no kids. Money has been tight since the job change and we are getting by fine. But i didnt have a crap ton to spend. So... i hopped on Groupon and wha-lah. I bought us a full Sushi dinner WITH saki for $15 total, & 2 movie tickets (to see either Transformers or Act Like A Man 2) for $10. So, $25 for date night. Include $10 more for desert and tip at the restaurant, i think $35 isnt all that bad for a great date night. Im so excited. I miss him soooooo much. Its so different being all alone, having no parental help, & worrying about everything on my own. :( He has 15 months to go on his contract with this company, before he can even think of something different or buy his own truck. He is gone for 2 weeks, home for 3 days. :( not gonna be easy, but we are strong and can do it.



Is it Tuesday yet?

He wants to go local, but he has to pay his dues first. He is a newbie. This is all hitting me like a ton of bricks. Its not fun. But, it pays the bills, puts food on the table, & allows me to stay at home and finish nursing school. By the time im done he'll be in town i hope. Which is 2 years away.

Being alone sucks. It does. But what sucks the most is the fear. Im so afraid hes gonna get in an accident or soemthing. He is a great and very safe driver. But, ppl are stupid. I've seen near accidents because a driver of a car was being dumb. :( it freaks me out. That phome call i get every night is what makes it easier to breathe.
