When one is married happily for many years and one's spouse leaves due to emergency for a week it is a joyous occasion when she returns home! Since I am that one and my spouse returned home last night I am feeling pretty good knowing that when I go home she will be there today. That is of course unless she needs to go shopping to refill various food stuffs that I may have emptied, or to take care of bills that need paying or some other things that didn't get done while she was gone.
Actually things went pretty smooth while she was gone thanks to the two children that are home. She did inquire regarding 2% milk. You see we drink skim milk. I thought I would splurge while she was gone. It felt like I was drinking cream which was enjoyable. However I couldn't manage getting both gallons down before she got back and so I was caught. She focused on the fact that the remaining 2% was dated later than the left over skim. I admitted I had splurged and unsuccessfully drank the evidence in time. She smiled and that was that. That is how I know she loves me!
I did finish it off this morning so the evidence is gone and maybe if I'm lucky she will think that she dreamed it since she returned home late and was tired. I doubt it but it was worth a try. Besides now that she's home, things feel better and I don't need the extra comfort of the creamy 2% milk. Things are good!
