Today at 3pm, Husband said "I'll be right back, I'm going to my parents to get a truck" because we had bad food from the broken freezer (see today's earlier post) that needed to be disposed of.

It is now 11:56pm. 8 hours later. No sign of husband. No phone call, no letter, nothing. Just vanished into thin air. He has not answered his cell phone, returned my call, or called out of courtesy to let me know that he is still alive.

In his absence, I have cleaned the kitchen and the bathroom. I have done exactly nine loads of laundry, hung it all up and put it all away. Ran the dishwasher, unloaded it, and reloaded it. Washed 8 pieces of stoneware by hand. Made supper. Let the dogs outside 4 times each, gave them treats, and put them to sleep on the porch. Changed the sheets and blankets on our bed and made it all up pretty. Vacuumed the bedroom, cleaned my closet, and put away my misc shoes. Taken down and packed up all the Halloween/Fall Decorations. Unpacked my new kitchen aid slicer/shredder and read the book. Checked the temperature in the freezer three times, watered all the plants, and visited with his brother and his brother's girlfriend when they stopped by for approximately 30-45 minutes.

What is it, do you suppose, that he found so riveting, that would take him away from our house for over 8 hours (without notice) and led him to believe that there was nothing for him to do here. No laundry, dishes, no outdoor chores consisting of winterizing, and no quality time needed to be spent with his wife. What do you suppose that is? Alcohol? Another Woman? His car upside down in a ditch? What is so riveting that stops his cell phone from being answered, and has prevented him from calling me? Hmmm..... I wonder.
