BYE-BYE BABY

Well, Hubby went to Houston mid-week to get the ball rolling on this consulting gig of his. The people in HR led him to believe it could take 3-4 weeks for the background check and clearance to be finalized. When he got home Thursday afternoon, he admitted to having second thoughts about the whole thing...about being so far away for so long, missing me, his healthy routines, and most of all, his Toto toilet. Two days later they called him back, saying "We need you back here in Houston Monday and Tuesday, then you can head straight to Sabine Pass from here." Uh, guess it's too late to back out now, huh?

Smooching on the steps of my college dorm, for old time's sake.
"Look on the bright side," I told him. "One of two things will happen. Either you will enjoy it enough to want to do it again every now and then, and you'll have a nice little chunk of moolah to go towards weddings and kitchen remodels. Ooooorrr, it will remind you of everything that was stressful and unpleasant about "the good ol' days", and you'll finally have it out of your system once and for all. Either way, you win!"

I chose not to remind him of the third option -- that hospital where he ended up after agreeing to take "a piece-of-cake consulting job" for a friend at a certain oil company,  when they needed someone kind and empathetic (didn't they have anyone like that on staff?) to field a few phone calls from people who might be a wee bit upset over a certain oil spill...

Anywho, too late now. He's on his way!

Hope option three isn't even a consideration. Toto, love those, we have one too....xox
