Baby's Coming Home...

ThatManILove came back to West Texas sometime around the first week of January. And went straight back out to work. I’ve actually seen him very little since Christmas. He’s been on a job where it was best that he stay at the drilling rig, where he has a trailer.


Which is okay. At least he’s within a couple of hours of home. And he has spent one weekend at home (Valentine’s!)…but mostly, he was getting caught up on rest. Then, we had to put one vehicle in the shop, and go get a rental car. Which he quickly loaded up with all the stuff out of his truck. And that which he didn’t load up, came into the front door of the house. And that’s as far as it got.

Yesterday morning, he was leaving the house, heading to another job, and he grabbed me for a quick kiss.

TMIL: Baby, Daddy’s coming home tonight. You know I’m like living out of a suitcase still, right? I’ve not even unpacked.


Janie: I know.

TMIL: No, really. I haven’t even slowed down enough to settle in since I got back from Pennsylvania.

Janie: You don’t have to tell me, dude! I know, babe.

TMIL: I don’t think you understand, honey. I need to reclaim my house. Kick Zack The Wonderdog out of my side of the bed. Unpack my clothes. I’ve really not been home, yet. And I miss my Zanna Montana Wonder Pup. And...

Janie: (I gotta stop him before he revs it up into a full out whine.) Honey. If anybody knows you’re not home, it’s me. (as I look pointedly around at the cartons of papers, steeltoe boots, suitcases, stuff…strewn…everywhere! And I’m not allowed to touch it - because God forbid I get it out.of.order!)

TMIL: Oh. Yeah. I…guess you do know I’m not home. Okay, honey. I'll see you tonight! Have a great day!

Isn’t he cute? He cracks me up.

Coming home is the best.

If he was ever home for long he might still live out of a suitcase, old habits die hard. My hubby still has things in boxes that have been there since he move out of his parents to go to college LOL

Glad to hear that man is back at home with you. I thought you were heading into x-rated territory when he starts to rev up (tee-hee) but he's just romantic and happy, happy to be with home with you. :)

Barrie said...

love the dog on his side of the bed. We have that problem too. :)

Fragrant Liar said...

Aw, that is so sweet. He really, really misses being home, and he sounds dog tired. Poor thing. That just means his homecoming is going to be that much more fun. If ya know what I mean . . .

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

It does sound romantic. Every time he comes home is special.

Thought you were heading into a zone of declaring your blog "X" rated...
Whewwww!
Have a wonderful weekend and turn off the lights, the phone...but don't go "X" rated next post...

Candid Carrie said...

I guess he's got his own way of marking his territory. Gotta love a man that's worth bloggin' about!
