    My husband sometimes tries to read the whole paper to me. And I read it first.

    I really am grateful he's still more or less alive and well - I know that there are a lot of widows on this board -

    He used to be an over-the-road truckdriver and would be gone for a week or so at a time - I do my best cleaning in the middle of the night - he's downright cranky if i vacuum at three a.m.

    I know we shouldn't complain because we still have them but............
    ..........I get to listen to the news ALL DAY LONG or the History Channel or anything that has to do with flying. My DH worked on the RR so I used to get some alone time fairly often, after the kids were grown. Now, he does have a hobby that takes him out of town but he's not well enough to leave very often. I asked if I could help him pack his things last week when he planned on going. It took him until 2:00 PM to get out of here. However, I don't like being alone at night. He leaves for 1 or 2 days then he gets homesick, for me, he says. Awwww.

    My hubby is also retired RR -- he too watches news channels all day (and complains loudly about what our leaders are doing/not doing) or the History Channel which he swears is biased and not really how it happened at all. His hobby is being a ham operator -- which means he NEVER leaves :cry: :cry: Today is one of those days when I wished he would go back to WORK!! The day started off (I haven't had my coffee yet -- OK?)with him telling me that the dishes in the dishwasher were clean. OK thanks dear (and I'm thinking -- that is YOUR job -- do you thank me for washing your dirty underwear?) Then he was talking about a cake pan that didn't quite come clean and when he baked, he always greased the pan. (OK dear -- now -- try holding your breath until I make you another cake!!) And then if was off onto how stupid some politicians were and that's when I escaped with still my first cup of coffee in hand to my sewing/computer room:roll: :roll: :D You either gotta love 'em or divorce them!!

    We do have to love them - I don't know what I would do without my DH. He complains that I watch the weather channel. Yes I do. So what. Several months ago I retired and now we race to the computer every morning. His office is in the house. Getting used to being together alot is hard!

    I remember when my father retired, he would sit at the kitchen table and watch my mother cook, or what ever she was doing.

    I have no clue what I'm going to do when hubby retires. I'm used to him being gone alot. Kinda like it that way at times....<shrug> But, it's what I'm used to. Been doing it for 22 years. WOW! Just realized that yesterday was our anniversary! Days fly when you are having fun, huh?

    But, when mine is home, golf or history channel is on. Drives me crazy. When it gets too much for me, I just tell him that it's a really nice day and he needs to go whack his balls for a while and off he goes! :)
