Quickie

Well, I sold the house! YAY!! Bought a new (used) car (white 2005 toyota sienna)!!! YAY!!! Moved in with friends and am now visiting family in AL and TN. I am missing my daily blog checks. Slight withdrawals are starting to take place, ha ha!! Right now, life is good. We are half-way through Kev's deployment and half-way closer to Alaska. It is hard celebrating the 4th knowing my husband is out there fighting for us to celebrate. I just cry at the fireworks, and every time I hear Lee Greenwood I am changing the station. I have pride in our country, don't get me wrong, I love that my husband is a defender of this nation, but hearing the songs and seeing the fireworks depresses me cause he is not here. I think this is part of the whole deployment emotion-cycle. It is hard to miss someone this much.

Kevin is doing fine. He has told me that a poll was taken and he has the 2nd best looking moustache in Al UDEID. Not so sure about this. He said I would like it, again not so sure about that. He also mentioned that he looks like an older man. I giggled, hard, at that statement. Last time he looked like kid who got ahold of a sharpie marker! He said he was going to send a pic. I will post and take a poll of my own!

Will post again as soon as I can.

Little things can always trigger a sappy moment with me....so you don't even have to offer an explanation for your moments, which are far more emotional than anyone can probably understand. I'm always praying for you. He'll be home soon...

I can't wait to see you tomorrow!!!

Girl...I am so feeling your pain right now. I am in desire need of Jamie. Although he comes home today we only have three short weeks left with him until the 6 monther....I am sooooo sappy right now and can't even get motivated to get him ready for deployment. I just want to wake up from this dream and be "just the mommy!" I'll have you in my prayers!!!
