My husband took our 10-month old to visit friends today while I caught up on some work. He was gone for a few hours when I decided I’d had enough of sitting inside so I called to see if I should join him. First, he didn’t answer and I realized they were probably sitting around the pool, drinking beer and playing with the kids. Not listening for the phone.
Finally, I called the house and got hold of him. I asked if I should join and the response I expected (yes, come on down) was not exactly what I got. Instead, I got, “It’s an hour away.”
I started crying.
