    My DH gets back from what I hope is going to be his last business trip for a few months
    Now I just have to fix my 'interested face' on in preparation for all the in depth details of how it all went etc etc and hope he doesn't test me on it at some later date

    ^^That was the advantage of doing classified work. I would get back from a week long meeting, my wife would ask me how it went, and about all I could legally say was either "Fine" or "Sucked". And in truth, that was about as much as she cared to hear anyways...

    I hear that. I love my husband more than life itself, but he is an engineer and my eyes glaze over when he talks about his work it's so complicated. Conversely, he can't handle my talking about my work as a nurse-he gets totally queasy so I get it evens out

    I'm glad its not just me then. I feel really guilty sometimes because I do find most of it so boring -
    Now how long should I give him to settle back down and relax before I hit the roof over the that fact that he & DS have started but not finished so many jobs around the place, the front yard looks like a Tag Sale and the garage like an obstacle course that you can't get any vehicles in?

    Boots, the pic of your daughter with the mountains in the back is spectacular. After your done at KatieQ's barn, how 'bout coming down to Tennessee? I could sure use some qualified help:)

    SouthernTrailsGA, shingles - ACK! Big mess and even bigger cha-ching, I don't care how small the roof is. We thought we would be able to put a metal roof on this year but that is not going to happen

    DimSum, don't push the knee surgery. I know someone that had both knees done 18 months to two years ago. Last I heard she was going to have to have them re-done late in 2012. She's diehard, make her own trails, trail rider, so I suspect the call of the trails got to her and she got back in the saddle too soon

    jaydee, I think not being enthused about hearing the standard work day routine is normal

    Mr. WTW still works because his picture should be beside "Hypertensive Type A". I try to be wide-eyed about his end-of-day recaps but, unless someone got fired, crashed a client's car, or got caught stealing, I am as guilty as the next wife of doing the Bobbing Dog Head

    Share my day: It's beastly hot & humid. I HAVE to give the dogs a bath. They're house dogs and they stink.

    I HAVE to do some serious cleaning. My step mom (only ten years older than me) claims she and her friend since grade school are driving from Ohio to Atlanta, GA. They want to make an overnight stop at my house

    I love my step mom and will be happy to see her, but the spare bedroom has been used for storing horse stuff and is atrocious

    I just know I will do all this cleaning and, Thelma & Louise (think the movie, that's not their real names:) will end up not leaving their county. They are 76, I hope my little brother barricades the driveway because I don't think they should be driving anywhere more exciting than the big mall 30 miles away

    Plus we are still behind on yard mowing. Bush hogging # 5 is done but the humidity is so high the yard doesn't even dry out by 5:00 PM. I've resorted to mowing it wet - I don't have a choice. To-date we have used triple the gas and diesel than what is normal for a mowing season and I see at least 30 more gallons of diesel in the near future, maybe more.
