As I was talking to a neighbor recently about my new job, I told him one of the things I was most excited about was that Kristen wouldn't have to keep working two jobs, and that "it will be nice to have her home for dinner."

You know what I would like for my first weeknight dinner at home in 3 months? A nice cheese quesadilla... Yum.
