Only a pilot's wife would understand

I love my husband, I really do. But sometimes there can be too much of a good thing. And having him home for the last year has been walking that good thing fine line. Sometimes an independent girl just needs her space. A knows this, understands this and enjoys (tolerates?) this quality of mine. Sometimes he even busts out a little humor about it. Like when, a few days ago, he told a friend of ours (a more traditional gal) that I was moving to Tallahassee to get away from him. Her jaw dropped and her eyes got all wide. I think my single gal friend had trouble believing that I would ever need some space away from my man. What is that quip? There's a little truth in every joke?

Oh I can totally relate right now. My DH has been home sick for the past five days (he finally went back in to work today), and before that he was off for seven with only an overnight in between to break up our togetherness. I don't know what's worse: having him home when he's feeling well, or when he's sick. I think it's worse when he's sick. He may as well be a second child because we don't go anywhere, my workload doubles in some circumstances, and he's always there. As a pilot's wife, I TOTALLY understand!!!
