Literally Lost without Us!!
I have been really anxious these last few days since I was informed that Ben would be going on his first "business trip" for the company that he works for. His job was to go out in the middle of a southern Utah desert, all by himself, in a SUV rental, set up a bunch of GPS equipment and monitor the data being taken from the Brad, the mechanical engineer, flying up in a plane scanning the desert. It doesn't seem so bad... until I found out that Ben decided it would be easier not to stay in a hotel, to just sleep out in the desert for a few nights and "survive." This makes me a little nervous...
First off, even though he is an Eagle Scout, Ben's idea of "surviving" is having to eat Roman noodles for two days in a row.
Enough said. I know you women out there know what I am talking about.
So yesterday when he headed out for his 9 hour drive, I was a little on edge.
And my anxiety just grow as the hours passed.
So you could say I was more than a nervous wreak when Ben called at 1 in the morning announcing that his directions were bad and that he was lost in the desert. Now, he would never openly admit this... you know men... it's always someone else's fault when they get lost. This time it was Mr. Google's fault for letting Ben down. How devastating...
Ironically enough, it was Google and a smart wife that ended up saving him. I got on my computer, found out where he was, and guided him to his "way station" along the dirt roads to nowhere.
Now, what would have happened had he not had a wife?
Let's go back to my question at the first: "How do our husbands survive without us?"
Well, all I can say is, that's why God gave men moms first!
