We had guests in town this week. DH was on call the night they arrived so I held down the fort. Post call I dragged him out of bed and we all went to dinner. Then back to work he went at 4am the next morning and that evening we went up to the hospital to try and have dinner with him. We ended up having dinner and I ordered him something as we were eating and he arrived right as we finished eating. He wolfed down his meal and we all headed home. The guests left Friday morning and DH actually got home by 6:30 yesterday. We sleep next to each other every night, but it felt like the first time I had seen him in weeks. He is back on call tonight. Its as brutal as they said it was going to be. At one point during the week we were sitting on the couch talking to our guests and I just turned to him and said, I miss you. I enjoyed having our guests but I was also feeling selfish and wishing I had him to myself at that moment so it was nice when we had yesterday evening to ourselves.
In exciting news, we were given our vacation dates for this and next quarter and we know the call schedule for August and September. It is so nice to not have to wonder what the schedule is going to be and he isn’t on call for our anniversary which is also a nice surprise. Now I just need to book tickets for the vacations which is just going to be brutally expensive. He wants to go somewhere for our non family obligated vacation, but that means of course he wants me to to figure it all out because he doesn’t have the time or inclination to do it himself.
