    My DH is leaving for Prague, the Ukraine and Russia on business next week and he's concerned about leaving me alone, but not to worry, there is a big quilt show here next weekend. I somehow think I'll be able to occupy myself. Can't Wait!!!

    Sounds like I'm glad to see him go, but I'm not really, I will miss him. Its just that when he's gone I can quilt as late as I want, I don't have to stop and make dinner until I get hungry and at the quilt show I can buy what ever I want to buy!!!!.

    Have a great time, we all need a little time to do what we want just for ourselves.

    Aaaahhh, there's nothing like when the hubbies are away. That extra time to ourselves to do as we please is priceless!
    Always nice to have them back home again too.

    A friend of mine says "How can I miss him if he never goes away" :) Its healthy to enjoy some time apart and even better to rejoice in his return! :)

    My DH is returning today from a week long fishing trip. Unfortunatly, I didn't have a quilt show to attend, but I had looked forward to not cooking, sewing all day, etc.... It didn't happen quite that way. I learned to appreciate him a lot this week, because I had to do the things he normally does, watering, walking the dog, taking the garbage out, putting gas in the car, and the like. I didn't sew near as much as I had hoped, but I did enjoy having some alone time, and now I am happy to have him come home. Hope you have a great time while he is gone, and then can't wait to see him come home!
