Their wives might kill them!
T-rex took a week vacation when he got home from the academy. It was actually a little longer than a week. It was very nice to have him home, and also very stressful. Don’t get me wrong being away from each other for so long did make it really nice to have him around. But at the same time he just got in the way a lot more. He does not pick up the way we do, there are more dishes, more laundry, more people to shower, and I think I just get so busy being with him that I never do get house work done.
It took a few days but I think in the end we found a pattern that works for us. Sadly that was near his last days home. Now he is back at work and we have to readjust to that again. First thing the kids asked when I got them up for school, a job that was T-rexs, was “where is daddy?” When I told them he was at work they got very sad thinking he was not going to be home again for a long time. I had to remind them that he would be home for dinner.
I hope he is having a great time at work. I know I am happy he is back at work; I might get more done around the house! And it is also nice to see him all dressed up in uniform! I still get giddy when he puts on his belt, and his badge. I am sure that will go away with time, but until then I am going to enjoy seeing him go to work .. . . for so many reasons.
