Just Checking In...

Hello friends. Just checking in to say hi, and to let you know that I won't be around much this week. Matt leaves on Sunday for the Big D(eployment) and I'm trying to spend every waking minute with him until then. Can't believe my D-day countdown is at 6 days...it started at 158! How did that happen? Sigh.

Not much else to say at this point. The emotions are running high and I'm trying to keep things under control and not freak. At least not while he's around! So far, so good. Any helpful hints or tips for handling this would be much appreciated. At this point, going to sleep has been the hardest part for me. Not sure why...I feel fine during the day but have been getting upset at night. At the risk of sounding cheesy, there's just something so comforting about curling up in a warm bed with the person you love. Something that makes everything else just melt away. Know what I mean?

Anyway...that's what's going on here. Be back soon.

Thinking of you! I know how hard this is, but I know that you can do it! Thank you and your husband for your sacrifice!

Smile, tie another knot in your rope and hang on, and wine. I'll be praying for you that it goes fast. :)

Really though in all seriousness, smiling helps. Last deployment, when I was feeling happy I made a running list of things that made me happy. When I was sad, I would look at the list and it would cheer me up. Every time it made me smile, even though I had it memorized!

I'll be thinking of you and your husband. It's a great thing you're both doing and you will get through it. Just keep smiling and thinking of the good things. I hope it goes fast and we'll all be here for you!

Enjoy the next few days! Just think, this time next year you will be looking back amazed at how strong you were able to be through all of this. You can do it!

This post gave me a tear...

I hope you enjoy every second with Matt this week and that his deployment FLIES by. Plus, you'll be spending all your time getting skinny and sexy (and hanging with us!) so you probably won't even notice that he's gone.

Right.

But still. Love you!
