Homeward Bound

My best friend is coming home today!

Before you ask, "What's her name?". . . It isn't a "she", it's a "he"! And before you get all worried, my best friend is also the father of my children, the love of my life, my husband. There! Now you've got something to talk about!

(gasp) "She said she's in love with her husband!"*
*Side note to all young(er) wives: It is possible to grow continually more in love with the man you love—for at least 34 years. (I'll let you know about 35 years next year.)
Knowing my baby's coming home today makes me want to straighten the house, cook dinner, get my hair done, play some of our songs, and wear a dress. Talking about a certain Hollywood star, one of my friends once said, "That's the kind of man I'd shave my legs and paint my toenails in winter for!" (Any woman who lives where the winters get cold knows how much that is saying!) Well, Lloyd Woodard, you're the kind of man I'd shave my legs and paint my toenails in winter for!

We've both had so many adventures in the past two and a half weeks, I can't wait to hold his hand, talk for hours, snuggle inside the curve of his arm, kiss him, . . . (fade to black).

And to anyone who's feeling a little "Victorian" at the moment—DEAL WITH IT!

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend 
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be comin' home again. 
Lucky we're in love in ev'ry way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be comin' home today. 
Welcome home, baby!
