Entropy3000-- thank you for the input. I will certainly use that. I guess the time apart affects me more because of my job. I am in a job that requires me to work from home an travel occasionally. Most of my time travel is just around the state of NC where I live but occasionally i have to travel other places like Dallas, Chicago, etc. When my wife is gone I miss her dearly. I assume she does with me also. This past weekend while she was in California for that conference, she called me everyday telling me she loves me and misses me. That is why with this upcoming trip I feel like I am reading too much into it.

Make the homecoming special.
When I travel I like my wife to pick me up afterwards. She dresses in a way she knows pleases me. Years ago she picked me up wearing nothing but one of my dress shirts. Ummm, she stayed in the vehicle. She has not been quite that bold in recent times but close enough. We did not go out to dinner that night but we usually do on the way home and make a date out of it.
It is good she is calling you. Make the most of that. Don't be too needy but do not shorten the conversation. Be excited with her. Let her tell you what she is doing. Maybe talk about how great it will be when she get's back. Make plans and so on. Take advantage of her being offline from work. She should be less stressed and more open. Stay plugged in to her.
So make some kind of plans for her homecoming.
Also make sure you guys "bond" before she goes. Make her parting memories about you passionate and loving. Which reminds me of a song lyric "Love me two times, once for tomorrow and once just for today. Love me two times, I'm goin away."
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
"Why do we fall? So we might learn to pick ourselves up."
"Itís not who we are underneath, but what we do that defines us."
