I still love him.

I'm making plans for my first meet with a blogger friend, and I am oh, so excited. I'm checking out hotels and restaurants and wireless know, all the necessities.

I need me a vacation, BAD.

Big Daddy and I haven't spent many nights away from one another in our 12 years together; he's gone on two overnight fishing trips and worked overnight a few times. In other words, I've never left.

He's gettin' a little bit nervous, my friends. I asked him if he's nervous taking care of the girls for 2 days by himself. He says no.

I ask if it's the fact that I'm meeting someone I've never met before, in a strange town.

"No, I'm just concerned about you driving all that way by yourself."

Y'all, it's less than 200 miles. I ran the roads like crazy when I was a sleazy single girl, and he knows that.

"Well, but you're a lot older now."

Yeah, he went there.

OH NO HE DIDN'T! LOL! My hubby was a little bit concerned when I drove 3-4 hours to TN to meet up with some online friends for a weekend as well. I think they just love us so much and can't bear the thought of something happening. Of course, I've driven the 2 hour drive to my parents' house many times - once straight there to pick up CJ and straight back (so 4 hours with only a quick stop!) and he didn't think twice about that one. So who knows what they are really thinking.
The older comment was a poor choice, but I suppose he's just trying to let you know he cares (and couldn't figure out a better way to say it - lol! At least he's not saying - bye - get out of here quick!

BTW - how cool and exciting - I hope you have a blast!

I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! I have needed a vacation for awhile now and now that I know this is coming up soon, I need it even more!

I'm glad yours is more concerned about you - mine is more worried over the fact he has to watch the kids!
