Hi Dr. Laura!

My husband has a government job and frequently travels around the world.

A few years ago he went half way around the world for a few months. I was at home with our 3 children ages 15, 9 and 2, and I was really alone. When my husband called to ask me to pick him up from the airport. I cried and screamed angrily that he should get a cab. Later that day, I was in a bookstore and I found your book "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands.” Money was tight, but I bought it anyway. I stayed up well into the night reading your book.

The next day, I was at the airport with our 3 children. Yes, I took them out of school. I dressed up in pretty dress and heels and makeup. We made a welcome home sign and baked a cake. I had his favorite dinner waiting for him at the house.

When we got home my husband was too tired to eat or anything because he had been travelling. I wrapped his dinner and put it in the fridge. That is something that I wouldn't have done 24 hours earlier.

Fast forward through the evening. We finally got some much needed mommy and daddy time. He bought me a pair of beautiful earrings on his trip and he kept looking around for the "old" me. He said he was dreading coming home and confided that he volunteered for the overseas trip because of me! I deserved that. I confided to him that I spent $15 on a book.

Thank you for writing the book!

June
