I was sent on a business trip to Birmingham, Alabama this week. Monday-Friday. Since DUBS and I have not seen each other since August, and we were going to be on the SAME piece of land he was talking about making the drive to Alabama from Virgina to come see me. I knew I would be working CRAZY hours, (open to close) and I would be tired and probably not have time to do much. Normaly, I work and then go crash at the hotel, sometimes even with out dinner b/c we get out so late. So, I was like "mmm.... maybe its not worth the trip."
He was thinking of coming down Tue-Wed, kinda thing. Hello! Thats a 10 hour drive. :shock:
So... when I flew out on Monday, we were still unsure if he was going to come down. At each airport, I'd call him, and let him know I had arrived etc etc. And we'd talk... I get to Alabama, go straight to the store to work (after being on the plane since 8am & 2 hours of time difference throwing me off) At 10pm, still at the store, dying to go to the hotel and crash, waiting on the Manager to take me b/c I didn't have a car....
One of the associates come to the office freaking out. "There is a man at the door knocking on the door" WE all go rushing out to the sales floor to see whats going on, and from mid-store I see that NY yankees cap!! :shock:

He was driving down to Alabama while I was flying up to Alabama!!
Awww.... I was SO happy to see him, epecialy after such a long day and a long 2 months. I kept punching him in the arm and saying, "I can't believe you, I can't believe you!! It was so nice to see his shiney Lava Orange hatch out in the parking lot waiting for us. He stayed with me the whole week, up until this morning when I had to be at the airport at 5:30am. Where he took me in, we said our sad
goodbyes. And he is now on the road, his 700 mile trip, back to Virginia.
We had the best times, with the little times that we were able to spend together. Dinner, being able to discuss the issues that I was dealing with at the store I went to help out, shopping, laughing, trying to catch a movie... And my favorite... Waking up and having him laying next to me. Seeing him 1st thing in the morning, was so nice. I'm mising him SO much right now!!
But I just thought it was crazy and amazing that he would take THAT drive just to be with me!! He's the best!!
