The phone rang at 2:15 am. Michael had just arrived in Malaga, Spain.

There was no internet on the bus Thursday and Friday nights. No internet at the venue, and they had checked into a different hotel than was given in the itinerary I had here.

I'm glad he's okay and that I know how to reach him now. He'll be in Malaga for the next five days.

He knows that I was worried and upset. I think we're definitely going to have to get an international calling card for future trips so that he can use any phone to make a call home. We don't have all our systems in place properly just yet - or, as my mother would say, "He's not yet fully trained."

Big sigh of relief here...

(Talking on Skype with my honey this morning.)

P.S. A big thank-you to those of you who left such caring and supportive comments on my last couple of posts. I really appreciate your advice and concern. I'm still learning how to be a wife, and when he's away from me my heart is where he is - even if I don't know where that might be.

Glad you finally heard from him -- it sounds so tough being suspended in limbo. And your mom's quote made me laugh, she's so right!

What would we do without modern technology these days? So glad you both are back connected on line. Have a great weekend before you know it he will be home and the end the school year will be upon us. All good things for those that wait.

Glad you are feeling better now that you've spoken with your hubby. Sounds like systems will be in place for the next trip!!

The smile on his face and the smile in your voice - says it all...
