I should keep you better updated on life here! E started his new job and he loves it. Remember when we drove to Eureka to bring him home for the wedding? And we showed up at the pier, in awe of the Coast Guard cutter and all the Seamen (ha!)? And when he came off the boat, he was almost unrecognizable with all the engine grime on his face, his coveralls and hardhat? Remember how he was grinning (and not just because I was there and we'd been apart for 5 months)?
Yes. That is how he is when he comes home from his job; dirty with engine grim and grinning (and not just because I am here, cooking dinner)! The first night when he walked in the door, so happy and pleased and barely able to wait for dinner to share all about his day, I flashed back to that moment of seeing him walk towards us on the pier.
It's put a euphoric spin on the week, filling me with sweet memories of being young and starting out. I know you'll know what I mean. You were there for most of it! Including the dreadful 'honeymoon' trip, but I will write on that later. Maybe.
For now I'll just go back to the reality of life, and how good that life is when the right job finds the right guy!
