he wants to know if they will ever stop talking

he wants to know if they will ever stop talking

August 18, 2006

Rob is home from his lengthy vacation of fishing, camping, and sleeping in disgusting negative star motels in the wilds of Wyoming and Montana. A vacation which sounds like a trip to Hell to me. Seriously.

He arrived home last night at about midnight. Shortly afterward we got into bed. And not too long after that (but long enough if you get my my drift ::wink wink::) we were joined by our 3 and 1 yr olds. As we lay together in the bed, trying to get comfortable with toddler arms across our faces, protecting our soft mid-sections from their spastic legs, I thought it is good to have him home.

At 8:45 this morning he was mopping the kitchen floor. And what did I do while he was mopping? I worked on my laptop, shushed him and pointed to my empty coffee cup, which he promptly filled for me.

Yes, it’s good to have him home.

    Welcome home Rob. I always love it when someone fills my empty coffee cup.

    Have a great weekend.

    Coffee boy…Oh coffee boy. Hey, maybe that could be a ‘thing’. ;0)

    “fills coffee cup”

    *wink wink, nudge nudge*

  4. kate says:

    I agree that vacation sounds like a trip straight to hell! I am glad he is back, keep the coffee coming!

  5. Jennifer says:

    Aw, that’s a great guy to have around. Mine’s been home this week too and I keep offering to support him so he can be a stay at home dad/husband.

  6. Daisy says:

    I’m enjoying mine while I can — football season starts soon, and (it’s not what you think) he works at most home games, not to mention extra overtime producing coach’s shows, etc. Being married to the media has its ups and downs.

    Negative-star motels in Wyoming and Montana? I think I’ve been there….

    Have fun….

  8. CaliforniaGrammy says:

    It’s always nice to have’em home again. I enjoy the “alone time” also though . . . oh yeah, I don’t have any kids to look after in this stage of my life.

  9. madre-terra says:

    It seems like you got yourself a good catch.

  10. Cheryl says:

    Gosh! I just love it when the priorties in a home are in order…..such as being able to just point and the cup will be refilled….there’s no need to even speak. Have a wonderful weekend. :)

  11. Y says:

    You got your enchilada stuffed, didn’t you? ;-)

  12. Christina says:

    Sounds really nice to have him home - what a good guy you found (even if his choice of vacation is a little strange):)

  13. jen3 says:

    I’m just wondering … is that a king or queen sized bed?

  14. kathy says:

    I think that is one of the sweetest things I’ve ever read.

    Welcome home Rob!

    Husbands are wonderful inventions. Especially ours. They are cuddly, feel good in our arms and they clean!

    Mine was home for six straight weeks for paternity leave last year. He fixed me breakfast and lunch every day. I almost croaked when he went back to work and I had to do for myself. Isn’t it good to have a great hubby?

  17. jennster says:

    LOL- good man. and i am LMFAO @ the camping reference

  18. Jennifer says:

    At what age do the kids stop climbing in the parent’s bed? Mine is 6 and is in ours more nights than not.

  19. Erin (erin-erin-bo-berin) says:

    Now he’s somebody to keep around!

  20. meredith says:

    You have a very good husband!

  21. Jenny says:

    Please tell me this was just a dream. He didn’t really mop the floor and top off your coffee, did he? Because if so I’m divorcing my husband and stalking yours.

  22. nabbalicious says:

    After seeing you in action, you deserve to kick back and point to the coffee cup!

  23. TulipGirl says:

    Mopping the floor and refilling coffee? Sounds just like my Hubby. . . Who happens to be on vacation right now (but with all of our kiddos in tow, me home alone.)

  24. Caya says:

    Dang it, where do they make these mythical husbands, that mop floors & top off your coffee, at 8:45 am no less-
