DH and I had a great weekend together. DH got off early on Friday, and we ran some errands. After that, we went to the place that is sponsering his company for dinner and drinks. Since DH will be deploying soon, he decided to have a good time. We finally left that place around 10 or 1030 Friday night, and went to a couple of bars in town. (FYI: Everybody that went had a DD, and I was one of them!) We finally got home around 230am on Saturday morning. Needless to say, we spend most of Saturday either asleep or laying on the couch watching Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel. Yesterday, we did a little cleaning and I went and pick up a few things from the commissary. Once that was finished, we just relaxed and watched some basketball games. Go Celtics and Magic!! They were both mostly good games.
DH did some packing also this weekend. As it gets closer and closer to his deployment date, the more and more my nerves are bundling up. I am trying to be strong, and I know I can't be the whole time and DH knows that I can't be. It doesn't make it any easier that we are actually talking about what he wants to know while he's gone, setting up the computers so we can see each other and everything else that goes along with a deployment. Some days I don't even think about the deployment, and some days it's all I think about. I am to the point where I want him gone, just so we can get it over with. It's a black cloud that just keeps hanging over us, and I want the sun back! Is that too much to ask for?
The moving company just came to get an estimate on how much it will cost to pack our stuff. I'm hoping that when I get the actual price it won't be too expensive and I can do that. I'm so ready for all of this to be over with. It's starting to weigh me down, and I want to be free again. Well, as free as I can be with a husband deployed! I'm so having a spa day when I get back home. That gives me one thing to look forward to after my husband is deployed!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
