Whether it's a good or a bad idea by anyone else's standards...whether I pushed him to go or not(I did..a little bit!!! ) ;) (I thought he should or he might regret it...) and whether or not he drove five hours to the bus stop this morning....my honey is coming HOMEEEEEE!!!! He said last night when we were talking, again today on the phone, and just now from my brothers on the phone, that he's been sad for a couple of days thinking of how long he's going to be gone and missing our anniversary, etc etc etc and he just doesn't want to go right now. :dance::dance::dance: I'm so happy....he will be going after a while, but he said he doesn't even want to worry about that for a while...he will go later. He just wants to come home...that means so unbelievably much to me. I know some here are going to think it's the wrong decision(absolutely!!! no offense intended by this.....) but I don't care! :) I'm just hoping it will be the right one for him..it works for ME!!! :) I wont post our problems on here anymore as people seem to be tiring of it by some of the comments..and that's not a problem and I'm not being huffy about it....I guess I would be too after months of hearing it..but I thought I would post my good news. My honey is coming HOME!!!!

PS..the onlything is I'm wondering how his Mum is going to feel about it..she is wonderfully supportive and she thought it was wonderful that he tried to change the ticket yesterday, but i just hope she's ok. Thankfully, Craig wanted to surprise Daryl when he went over, so he didn't know Craig was coming anyway so won't be disappointed. :) :) :) M.

Michelle,

You have this week off if I remember your post earlier. Craig is coming home and maybe you too can take some us time and just get away for a day and talk away from everyone. Please take care and hope you both have some enjoyable reconnection time.

Wow, Michelle that is just awesome news!!!

Does that mean he is on his way back or is he going to stay overnight at your brothers house?

Maybe he has been feeling kinda trapped, and the feeling of being in control and able to go home finally brought him to his senses. I sure hope so.

I hope you have a wonderful reunion, and hope that Craig can finally move on and find himself a job soon.

I for one am not complaining about your posts, I think they are useful to alot of people on here who are having doubts of whether they did the right thing.

You two are an inspiration to others, so I would say just keep on posting if it makes you feel better, and ignore the people who give you grief for it.

Heres hoping you two have finally turned the corner!!

Good Luck

I am so happy for you. I know how his decision must mean a great deal to you. If you need to post about something, then post. Do not worry about whether others wish to read it as no one is forced to read anything. I think a lot of us (myself included) are getting an idea of what we might face in the future from reading your posts. Also, we are all here to listen and to give ideas. That is the entire idea of the forums, to support eachother in situations that the majority of our friends and family do not understand.

Michelle

very glad to hear the news. You guys have been through so much already and to me this sounds like he is missing you and no matter what fights and meaniness you both been through, you obviously still have tons of love to share and the will to really wanna be together as hubby and wife. Enjoy his coming home and have some good you and him time together... enjoy eachother. This might just be like seeing eachother after a seperation during the K1 process etc. Talk things through and hope this is a brand new fresh start. And as for ppl being fed up, if you feel like posting, post and disregard the stupid lill comments in between, we are here to offer a congrats for happy news and support when times are bad!

Lots of love

c483d23f.gif That is wonderful Michelle :thumbs: When I read this it reminded me of that quote 'If you love something let it go. If it comes back to you, it's yours.........' Sometimes it takes doing what you think you need/want to do, in order to know what it really is that you need/want. I'm so glad he is coming home. I am so happy for you guys. All the very best to you both.
