Sure Signs Jason is out of town (again)

-I sleep with my cell phone in case someone cuts my phone lines in the middle of the night
-I can't sleep unless the kids are in bed with me (even though Jayden keeps me up all night with his teeth grinding and sweatyness)
-I sleep with the porch lights and atleast 2 hallway lights on (although Jason likes to tease me that I'm just letting the stalkers know he's out of town since that's the only time the porch lights get left on all night)
-we eat Mac & Cheese for dinner every night
-the house stays cleaner
-I stay up way later than normal so that I fall right asleep instead of laying in bed listening to every creak and noise
-I rent all of the chic flicks that Jason refuses to watch with me
-we all appreciate him alot more when he comes back!

Here's to another long 2 weeks....

I totally do the cell phone thing and for the same reason. Glad I'm not the only paranoid wife:) You need to add to your list "Make cute headers for blog". That is SO cute!!! If you feel like you ever need one more project to work on I could send you some pictures to make into a header for me:):) You never cease to amaze me! Hope the next two weeks goes by quickly. Wish I was there to keep you company!

Sorry you have to deal with that for 2 weeks at a time. Mine only lasts a few days every week...not too bad. You can come hang with us some nights if you want! We can feed our kids crappy food together and watch chick flicks! ;)

I don't know how you do it Jamie. You are amazing!

I would do everyone of those thing too. I'm so sorry you have to go that long without him around. You are a strong person than most to be able to do it. I don't think I could.

(It's Anna on Andrea's blog)
I can relate to your phobia as I do
the same things at night. Living in sin city has trained me to sleep
next to my cell phone, double check
all doors and turn all porch lights
on. By the way, have you seen The
Proposal and 500 Days of Summer??
Jason may even like them, too.

I admire you! I hate having Dan gone as well. You have been a very patient and strong woman this summer!!!!
And, good for you for keeping the house clean! It is only clean around here when Dan is around to motivate me to do something!

SAME HERE!!!! Exept I don't let the kids sleep with me b/c I have a mace bottle under my pillow with the cell phone. :) Good luck! I did it for a year when Trent worked in Chicago. I know how you feel so call us if you need anything!

Why does the house stay cleaner when the husband is away? Mine does too...hmmm...
Hang in there!
