Getting things done...

This morning, I went and had the oil changed on one of our vehicles. Next week, I get the oil changed on the other one. I'm getting ready for the big drive back home after DH leaves for his deployment. Every single day it is becoming more and more real. Today, DH is having a layout of his packing list. I don't know if everybody does this, but his company is doing it. He has a lot of stuff packed and it all fits; I just don't understand why they are going to make him unpack and repack everything. These are grown people so shouldn't you be able to take their word for it that everything is packed? Whatever, I guess. It is what it is.

The past couple of weeks I've had trouble falling asleep. I think my mind thinks of everything but the fact that in a month or so, I will be sleeping by myself every night. It's getting to where it drives me crazy! I start thinking about Tank, our black Lab, and then it goes to the neighbor's dog and then the neighbor. From there it can go anywhere from watching tv and thinking this person is to skinny to what I need to buy while DH is gone. It doesn't seem like it stops until I'm so exhausted that I just fall asleep. I'm sure that I will get over it, but I hope it's sooner rather than later. I'm tired, and I'm thinking I'm going to take a nap today!

I hope everyone has a great day!

Hi! I'm stopping by from a Bee and His Honey.

I'm a military spouse too and the days before a deployment are filled with stress, anxiety, and trying to enjoy each day while you can. Have a safe trip after your hubby deploys. Praying that your hubby comes back home safe and sound. :-)
