I've always had a roommate and have never lived on my own and even when they were gone, I'd do the same thing. Or, I'd just go stay at a friends house or have someone over. I make up noises that I hear and sometimes wish my 10 pound Jack Russell Terrier was a 80 pound German Shepherd! So, the upside, I sleep with the dog at the foot of the bed knowing that she'll bark and growl if she hears anything suspicious, and a gun on each nightstand. So, the mentality I really have is more of a "Shoot first, ask questions later." I am from Texas, after all!
So, to all you army wives and wives of husbands racking up the frequent flyer miles, I don't know how you do it. Maybe you aren't a sissy like me, and I know I am, but if I had a drink, I'd
so raise a toast to you!
On another note, he does come home tonight, which means no more jumping each time the air conditioner turns on. I think I'm going to get out of my snobby, 55-year-old-woman-in-a-24-year-old-girls-body-attitude and check out the local festival tomorrow. It supposed to be a pretty big deal around here...we shall see.
For the Fam: Here are a few pictures of the house. I'll take more of the upstairs and our bedroom and post those later...
Our Little Dining Area:
Living Room -- My curtains look shiny in this picture!
Kitchen -- that I've used twice!
