Okay, so DH told his supervisor that he would want to return his stuff, check out, and start home on Sept. 1. Well, it turns out that the well he was working on closed and they had no place to put him until around when he wanted to leave. So...he's on his way home now. Well, he's stopped in Denver. He's going to stay there tomorrow and spend time with his friend Dave and see if he can look at some apartments, just in case we DO end up going to Denver. And then he'll drive from Denver home on Thursday.


YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!


I'm sort of sad that he's missing out his last week again, which equals out to about $1000. But I'm so happy he's coming home!!

So glad he's coming home Brittanie!! how long of a stretch is he usually gone for?

my DH works from home 3 days/week and our desks are right next to each other, we're only apart 2 days/week, you'd think we'd get sick of each other but we both are actually really looking forward to the day he can work from home full time, if that ever happens!

It was just an internship, so no more leaving after this! YAY! He was working for a company that contracted out to oil companies to do exploratory drilling. Most of the time it's for natural gas. Basically what he would do was take hourly samples of what was coming up from the drill and analyze what it was (shale, limestone, etc), and then pass it on to the real geologist so he could tell where in the rock strata they were and if they needed to change the position of the drill. He was working 12-hour shifts (12 on, 12 off) every day. He was also in Oklahoma.

He was gone for 7 weeks at the beginning of the summer and has been gone this time since July 21. In the middle for 6 weeks he was doing his capstone geology course, camping and mapping all week and only home on the weekends (which was apparently enough time to get me pregnant =)


So anyway, he's back for good. He has one semester left, which starts Sept. 10, and then he graduates mid December. Hopefully he'll get a job that will let him come home every night!

I say MOVE TO DENVER!!!!! You'll only be 7 hours away from me, and we have family up there, so we go all the time. Plus we're talking about moving up there too. It would be so nice to have a friend there!!
