Deployment in Review: Month 9

Nine months down! THIRTY NINE WEEKS. That is a long time, y'all. A really, really long time. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have many of these monthly updates left! Then again, it's the Army, so who really knows for sure?

For some reason, it seems like the end of deployment is harder than anything else. I can't really describe it, I can't really explain it, but my Army wife friends agree with me that for some reason, it sucks extra. I have definitely been on an emotional roller coaster, and have been stuck in a funk for quite awhile. I am trying very, very hard to shake it and just be myself.

This month, I ...

-Enjoyed a fun day out in the country at my SIL's house! Oscar and I always have such a great time out there. It is dog heaven, so he loves it - and I love just relaxing and playing with the animals and hanging out with the fam.
-I started writing for Fantabulously Frugal!
-I got water stuck in my ear and had the worst day ever.
-I cut my thumb open and had to go to the ER to get it glued back together ... and then the garbage disposal broke and my sink backed up and it was a nightmare. Possibly tied for worst day ever?
-I went to the Covered Bridge Festival ... aka White Trash Fest
-I finally, finally CLEANED OUT THE CLOSET! And I found some crazy shit in there.
-I started trying to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project over at Fantabulously Frugal.
-I attended my friend Kyle's baby shower (yesterday).
-And today, I drove down to my SIL's to see puppies! Their dog, Macey, had 9 puppies yesterday and they are so adorable. I have some photos to post tomorrow, probably. She is a yellow lab and they bred her with a silver lab. The result? 4 chocolate pups, 3 yellow pups, and 2 dark yellow labs.

So, this month feels like it's been pretty busy. I have also started nesting ... that's the best way I can think of to describe it. Just trying to get the apartment ready for Matt to come home! I have lots of projects and am quickly going through my list. When I'm done, the apartment will be cleaned and organized to a T!

Wow, nine months! I can see how the end would be harder but keep pluggin' along - maybe it'll fly! Hang in there! :)

Yeah!! That much closer to seeing the hubby!! :-) I'm sure keeping busy helps a little bit!

9 months, 39 weeks, and nesting?? Apparently this deployment thing is good practice for you?

I hope that this is the very very very last monthly update that we read.

Hurry home, Matty boy!
