This is my hubby! He loves his job, he is the happiest I have ever seen him. But we never see him, well we see him but there is a phone hooked to his ear and he is engrossed in a conference call. My husband works German hours then rides his bike home, showers, eats dinner, and into our home office, for meetings and updates in California timezone. He works most weekends and in the last eight months has taken a couple Fridays off. He is tired and spent and really gray now! But it totally works for him in a good way. REALLY!
He was unable to join us on our summer holiday to the States. It was really hard to be on vacation without the person that needs one the most. Luckily our part of Germany is on holiday, school is out for 10 days!
So we leave Thursday for six days in Rome, five days in Florence, Italy. He is leaving his computer and blackberry at home, a true vacation and well needed break. We can't wait to see him and not be shhh! or waved away. Real conversations, meals without a time limit, his undivided attention.
