Last night our cable and internet were out. I guess some rogue tree fell and took it out. While they confidently assured my it would be quickly fixed... it wasn't. Luckily, after meeting a friend for coffee I picked up some dvds. After watching "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" I was sitting quietly, feeling very lonesome and playing computer games. Around 10 my phone rang. It was my husband and I was like, "Oh no. He is injured. Otherwise they do not call home from the field." As my brain was on the verge of passing out he says, "Can you open the front door and let me in?" Then I was like, "WOO-HOO!!!!" It was so exciting! Now we get him here at home til Valentine's. They are leaving for the field on Valentine's day. But I am just thrilled to have these stolen moments. Of course, he is working all day but we do have some time in the evening. Tonight we did our usual post field celebration and ate at Red Lobster. Then we all played UNO and finished reading the condensed version of "Anne of Green Gables". It was a perfect evening together.
