The Life of a Momma of Twins - Twice!

It is 1:25 a.m. here where I live.  I'm supposed to be at work in, oh, 7 hours.  I'm awake.  Wanna know why?  My husband is not home yet!  Here's the story:

Hubby works at our local radio station.  On Sundays he works 6 p.m. until midnight.  We usually chat online while he's at work.  Tonight, he sends me an instant message at 12:01 saying he's on his way home.  I decide to "wait up" for him.  I drift off at the computer.  I wake with a start and look at the clock  It says 1:12!!!!!!  Um, the radio station is about 20 miles away, it should take 30 minutes for him to get home at the most!!!  I start flipping out.  I have four little ones sleeping.  I can't go anywhere.  So I call my dad.  I didn't know what to do.  I tell him hubby sent me a message at midnight saying he was on his way home, and he's NOT HOME YET!!!  So now I'm panicking, and now I have my dad panicking.  We decide I should call either the police or the hospital.  As I'm pacing, I walk by the answering machine in the pantry.  It was blinking with a new message.  Weird.  I never heard the phone ring, and I would have heard it ring.  Right?  Nope.  Hubby called me FOUR times after midnight.  Apparently, his engine blew up while he was driving.  He was just a few miles from work.  So he walked back to the station, and tried calling me.  Ugh.  Not that I could go get him or anything.  He actually got a hold of his boss, who is on his way in to pick him up (he lives about 20 minutes in the opposite direction!) and bring him home (Bless that dear man's sweet heart!!).

So, now I'm trying to get my heart to stop pounding so wildly.  I need to breathe again.  He's alive, he's safe and sound.  I feel awful that I dozed off SO SOUNDLY that I couldn't hear the phone ring FOUR TIMES!!!  He even was IMing me on the computer, because I was still connected.  And I was sitting right here and it didn't wake me up.  I feel like a dope, but I was SO freaked out, and so worried, and I am SO glad he is okay, and he is on his way home to me.  I am thanking God that He didn't leave me alone with four children!
