Another day closer

So we just got home from a day full of fun for the last few nights and days that the hubby will be home before leaving for the sandbox.  So we went and ate breakfast this morning, went to Best Buy to figure out what hubby wanted me to send him in Iraq either a Kindle or a Nook I believe after a trip to Barns and Noble we are gonna get the new Nook color when taxes come in. Had dinner at Cheddar's, hubby got his chicken fried steak he wanted before he left and I got one too. Lol. Now for the rest of the night we are in to relax and just spend time together before that dreadful day comes. Well I think that is it for tonight. Night y'all see ya tomorrow sometime.

Not long till he leaves

Wow it seems just like yesterday that I got him home from Iraq the first time. I have mixed feelings about this deployment, I am scared, worried, many other feelings as well, but most of all I am gonna miss my husband like crazy.  I stayed home last deployment so this is a whole new ball game for me.  I am not saying I doubt that I can't do it I know I can do it I just know it is going to be hard.  I am a Army wife.  I knew he would be gone a lot.  Shoot we have spent over 85% of our relationship apart.  For the first 2 years that I knew him he was in Germany.  Then he got stationed stateside then 5 months later he was shipped off to Iraq then when he came home for R&R and then 2 weeks later I sent my new husband back to Iraq. Then two months later he came home for good in Nov.  Now just over a year later I am sending him back to the sandbox. I guess why I am so bugged and upset with this deployment is we were first told that they would be home till at least June of this year and then about June of last year we got word they were being deployed in March then it got bumped up sooner again and well here it staring us in the face already.  I guess I am done venting for the day.  Please don't judge me on my feelings just listen.
