I just checked on DH's first flight...he is about 30 minutes from landing in Rome. He has a layover there for most of today and will be doing the "tourist thing" for a while. Then late tonight he catches a flight back here. I am to pick him up at the airport at 3am (no sleep for me tonight as it is a 2.5-3 hour flight each way)....I rented a car yesterday that I am only allowed to drive - but at least DH can keep me awake on the return trip.
Things have been fine here with him away...but I am SO READY for him to be back home!
