BUT. My mother-in-law drove to the airport, and then we engaged in some good healthy retail therapy plus Cheesecake Factory, and that was nice. Going to bed last night was hard...I felt really exhausted. d.a.r. told me I should take some Tylenol PM but to be honest, I was so tired I just didn't think that I would need it. Then I got in bed...and was wide awake. For awhile. I ended up popping one Tylenol PM and had a great night of sleep.
The good news? Today is a new day! And, like d.a.r. told me, yesterday was the hardest, and I'll never have to do that again. Thank goodness! I talked to Matt last night when he was getting settled in his barracks room (joy) at Benning, and we've texted a bit today. It is a good transition to be able to still talk to him!
Anyway. For some reason I haven't felt much like blogging or reading blogs, which is silly and I'm sure I'll snap out of that quickly. So in the meantime, I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I received so many emails/texts/tweets/calls yesterday from so many people - the majority of which were blog friends. I can't tell you how much all of that means to me. It feels so good to have such a strong support network of friends! So thank you, so so much. I wish we all lived in the same place so we could go out for happy hour tonight! :)
