Those of you on Facebook probably saw my little blurb the other day about how Cam might be running a job in St. George. For those of you not on Facebook, what I said was "I just found out Cam might be running a job for 4 months in St. George! That's going to suck! Who's going to kill the spiders?" Well, we found out Friday, it's pretty much for sure that Cam is running the St. George job. And we also found out that it's not 4 months, it's more like 9 months! So, probably starting in May, Cam is going to live in St. George for 9 months! He will be able to come home for most weekends, but aughgaughaughaughaugh!!!!
I've had a couple of days to process all this. The one big obvious thought is, at least Cam has work. The construction industry is one of the hardest hit in these bad economic times, and so I can't complain that he is guaranteed work for the next year. And Cam is definitely good enough at what he does, that his bosses are willing to send him out of town to do a job. That means they have a lot of confidence in him to do the job right, and I am so proud of him for that.
I'm not doing this post because I want to complain how lame it will be to basically live alone for 9 months. I've got Tosh, the cats, the fish and the massive head-wound mexican to keep me company. I may need to take up a hobby, but I'm actually pretty good at being alone. What worries me most is...What is Cam going to have for dinner?
The Menloves, his bosses, are putting him up in a place that has a kitchen, but it still worries me. When he comes home from work, he is so tired, and I always make sure that he has a good dinner. He hates eating out and he hates frozen dinners, but he's going to be too tired to cook for himself. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to help him? Any ideas will be most welcome.
And I guess I will have to be brave and kill my own spiders. It was pretty funny, the day after we learned Cam is doing the St. George job, I found 3 spiders that needed to be killed. Cam killed them for me.
