Tom Is Home...Almost

You know how hosts of those game shows are all dramatic when they announce the winner?

Like Phil from The Amazing Race goes, “7 continents, 10 countries, 6 states…YOU are the official winner of The Amazing Race.”

I sort of picture him saying something like that about my reunion with Tom tonight. I can picture him standing there saying, “9 months. 270 days. 6570 hours. 23,000 seconds. These two have experienced heartbreak, frustrations, and have probably forgotten what sex even is. But tonight. Tonight, folks, these two will be reunited.”

Yes.

It’s true. Tonight I will see Tom again. His flight comes in around 10.

I’m a little nervous.

I mean, I’ve seen him on Skype. But that’s not totally the same.

I can actually touch him.

Push him over, even. I’ve done this, when he’s threatened to eat all my chocolate. Actually, he barely moves when I push him. He’s much stronger than I am. I sort of shove against his shoulder and he stands there looking at me like, “Really?”

If the weather improves, I plan on wearing a dress. No panties. I’m kidding. Panties. My mother is here. My children are here. I can’t go commando without feeling naked.

Crap. I just realized I better put a towel on his towel holder. It’s been empty for so long.

But yeah.

Tonight?

Tom will be home.

  3. YAY!! how very exciting!! My mom has always told me that when my dad was deployed, she was always nervous for him to come home. That is so great that you are in the homestretch!!
    I love your sense of humor -- I definitely feel naked if I go commando -- oh and when I push on my husband he laughs at me because he, like your Tom, is so much stronger than me =)
    Have fun reuniting with your husband!

  6. So glad he's coming home! My hubs is still gone, but I can totally relate to how excited you are! Funny thing, I was thinking a few days ago of things I need to do before he comes home, and one was to replace his bath stuff (a towel, new toothbrush, etc etc). Made me smile to read you were thinking the same thing!

  7. I'm UBER-excited for you! My hubby's been gone a week for work and I'm dying - how do you do it?

    He may be leaving me for a year though :( I'll come crying to you for advice at that point if you don't mind!

    I loved your post about NYC. My best friend and I are planning a trip for her fortieth and my husband is convinced it will be a taping of Law & Order. {eyeroll}

  18. Very romantic - I guess for all the hard things about being apart, you can still enjoy such intense moments which are unusual in civilian married life! I hope you're having a lovely reunion.

  34. Squeeeee...how bout I go panty-less for you and in honour of his return. Wait...is that creepy?
    This makes me so happy though. REally. I don't know how you do it. I hope you get tons of sexy times now and AND maybe he'll let you sleep in.

    ReplyDelete
  35. How exciting! Okay, instead of going commando, how about crotchless? That's still titillating, right? I hope your headboard is away from your bedroom wall a few inches! Have fun! *wink*

    ReplyDelete
  36. Honey, I'm so glad he's back. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm not weighing in on the panty debate; just wanted to wish you a wonderful reunion. Another friend's husband just got home after a year in Iraq, so this makes two reunion posts I'm reading in the space of an hour. Thanks to Tom (and your whole family) for the service. The kids must be going bananas...
