I think I've been a Trooper's wifei for too long now...when hubby says he'll be late because there's been a fatality, all I can think about is how it affects my evening. Kind of sad.
Someone just DIED and I'm stressed because I'll be home alone longer.
And it isn't like a drunk driver or anything in this case. It was kind of a sad one (it's hard to take every single one to heart - especially if self induced from alcohol or drugs).
I'm glad he comes home at all. If it has to be a little bit later than normal, that's just part of being a cop's wife.
