another sleepless night begins...

DH left (again!) this morning on (another!) business trip. I hate it when he is in flight overnight, cause I don't sleep. Today/tonight is the longest single flight he has ever taken:

14 hours.

He left the house at 9 am. flew to Toronto. The direct flight left T.O. 6 hours ago, and he has another 8 hours to go. Then he gets on another one for 6 more hours till he arrives at his destination.

My problem? Plain old fashioned worry wart. I constantly wake up and turn on CNN checking for "Breaking News Plane Crash". Will I ever get over it?

I realize my worries pale in comparison with Lori, as I previously recognized, but these are my worries, and I am stuck in PMS hell. So, I must go devour an oversized bucket of butter laden popcorn, chocolate covered raisins and a diet coke. And watch CNN.

What I wouldn't give to be able to blame a sleepless night on a wailing infant...aaaaah, the good ole days.

I'll worry with ya! And hey, we all have worries that pale in comparison; I bitched about my hair twice this week, despite "real" concerns. Worry away, and next week I'll complain about PMSing before having to dress up and give a toast at a wedding!

Hope that popcorn helps. Try wine, too.

I am so selfish. I never worry when Bing travels. I am always freakishly relieved to not have to share covers for awhile. We have a full size bed, but I covet a king sized one.....

Hang in there...

My hubby rarely leaves at night, but often returns from trips late at night. I cannot fall asleep until he gets home. :-)

Hubby doesn't travel nearly as much as yours does but, I can't stand it. I don't sleep very well, something usually happens while he is gone and really I just plain worry.

You are my hero. I couldn't do what you do, that is for sure.
