Middle of the night melt down....

So I just have to tell about my night two nights ago. So Jared normally goes to the gym at night around 9:00 with a few of his buddies. The gym is only open till 11:00 so he is usually home by 11:15 at the latest and by that time I am out. Sometimes I try to stay up and wait for him, but lately I am just way too tired to try and stay up. So anyway the other night he goes to the gym, and I for some reason could not fall asleep. Well 11:45 rolls around and I kinda start to get a little worried. So I call jared's phone, and no answer. I knew that one of jared's good friends that he hadn't seen since before he was deployed was supposed to go and work out with him that night so I figured they were probably talking....so I tried to just relax. Then 12:30 rolls around and I am really getting worried. I start trying to call some of the other guys he was with but couldn't get ahold of anyone. So now it is 1:00 in the morning....two hours past when the gym closed and I am getting histarical. I have probably called jared's phone a good 10 times by now and still no answer. I am thinking the worst at this point....he has been in a serious accident or something. So 2:00 rolls around and I finally decided to get boston up...I am grabbing boston's stuff thinking that I might have to go sit in the hospital or something, and I get in the car and start driving to the gym. The whole time as I come up to each intersection I swear I am seeing flashing lights. I am bawling. I finally get to the gym, and sure enough....there's jared and his friend sitting in the blacked out parking lot in his friends car. I pull up and jared has this look on his face like I am crazy....let's just say I pretty much came unglued. He had left his phone sitting in the car, and figured that I was probably asleep so he didn't think to send me a message or anything. Anyway I turned around and went home and put boston to sleep....and then tried to go to sleep myself. I think I probably had a mini heart attack that night....

Haaahaa. Don't you love those meltdowns. When Cortney and I were first married it was before cell phones (well before we could afford one anyways). So many times he was supposed to be home at 5:00 and I would wait and wait and wait and finally at 10:00 p.m. I would get in the car and leave and drive around with no where to go. Then I would come back thinking...maybe he came home and is wondering where I am. Only to be wrong and find he still wasn't home. I hate when that type of thing happens. Of course you start to think...are they hurt, why are they late? I always would get mad in the end and say "well they better be hurt!". Anyways to make a long post even longer....I was so greatful when we finally did get cell phones. I was also greatful when Cortney thought to remember to check in with me every once in a while.

Sweet myca! That sucks so bad. I've had a couple meltdowns like that too. It's always pretty funny afterward after your heart attack goes away!
