Saturday is a Special Day...

Remember when I was about to go postal? Not fun. I had to take a break. So I did. But what I didn't say was my husband saw me in my peril, jumped on his white stallion and came to my rescue. It was divine.


...This is him after a week of not shaving. He was trying to do a mug shot photo because he thought it would be funny. I didn't realize until now how unkempt and smelly he looks in this picture. He really is quite handsome and charming. At any rate...

The 29th constituted as his last day with his internship.

That meant that right when I was on the verge of breaking down, he was home to help me. And he has been home since then.

I have loved every second of it.

I know of many women who say they can't handle it when their husbands are home, they drive each other crazy, and it is too hard. I am not one of those women. I love being with Jeffrey all the time. He isn't as fond of it as I am, so I have to let him have his space, but just the fact that he is here, and I can send Keith down to the man cave when I need to get some cleaning done is such a huge relief!

And the best part, is I lose track of what the day is. Really. Every day last week felt like a Saturday. The sweet treat of spending all day visiting with my husband, and then going to bed late has been wonderful.

Granted the whole "we are running out of money to pay our bills" thing is a bit annoying, and we know it wont last forever, and the stresses of finding a new job especially in this economy are not fun to deal with. But the fact that it is "Saturday" and he is home really helps make it all seem brighter and a whole lot less sinister.

So I am going to enjoy every second I can, and we are going on lots of family outings, and make lots of memories, because once he does find a new job, who knows how long it will be before he can take another vacation.

Amen Sista. I also love when Bryan is home. Gives us time together and time for the kids to be with their daddy-o's:) If they start bugging, we can always go shopping for a bit....I'm sorry he lost his job. No good! I'd say put a bunch of shit on ebay and see how that goes. Good Luck! Keep us posted:)

I agree, it is fun when hubbies stay home! Nick doesn't get to do it much and when he does I have to break him away from his computer so I can smooch him or play a game with him. But at least he has some "man time" to fill his (apparently) empty "man time" glass. Heh ehh

How wonderful for you! Enjoy all these Saturdays while you have them. Good luck with the job hunt.
Love his picture. You should put up his clean-cut and charming picture so we can compare the two!

My hubby works six days a week. I gotta say, I'm a bit jealous. Have so much fun!

I can totally relate to the whole "running out of money to pay bills" thing. I was laid of last April and so far, have only had two temp jobs, the first of which was supposed to be temp to hire, but only lasted for five months, thanks to the economy. (Thank the Lord for taking care of us during this rough time!)

I totally agree, I would much rather have Eric around then gone. The kids love him and would rather play with him when he is around, so not only is it a Saturday but almost a vacation for me :)

Katie Lane said...

I am exactly the same way!! I LOVE spending every second with my husband. Yay for love :) and good luck with the job hunt.

How great to have him around for awhile! I love having my husband around all the time too. Just enjoy the time you all have together and good luck with all the other stuff going on!

Chantel said...

I'm lucky because Brian works from home so I have him around all the time. I think it annoys him but I love it. He's out of town this week and I'm going CRAZY with the kids!!!

I'm so jealous I wish my hubby could spend more time at home but these though times he feel that he has to be such a good hard worker that they can't get rid of him... I kinda look forward to him not haveing work for a few months but I think after that I would like the money to be coming in again and have to send off to work with a kiss and the warning to be safe (our daily tradtion)

Andrea said...

I'm the same way! I can be with my husband 24-7 and never get tired of being around him. In fact I'm much more of a pleasant person the more often he's around. Enjoy your time together!

Alina said...
