Andy asked me a few days ago if I was ever planning to blog again (hint hint). I think he was hoping to see some pictures of his children. I told him I can't blog when I am depressed, or as Anne would say "In the depths of despair". He replied that a one sided blog was boring. It deserved to have both the "trials and the triumphs". And yes, I just gave my hubby quote marks- his words are definitely moving up on the world!
I am moving out of my funk, and perhaps even past the pouting phase. Those of you who are military might recognize the adapting stages of a deployment. The thing is, he isn't deployed. We thought we would have free access to him often, at least for awhile. WE WEREN'T PREPARED! I guess what I am saying is that it is really bad timing to catch a dreadful cold that makes you feel like dying the same week you find out that you might not see your husband again for three months. Three months that you hadn't really packed for, or done the goodbye routine for, nor do you know FOR SURE. That whole not knowing thing is a real booger! In fact, we won't know for sure until this upcoming Monday- valentines day. Won't that be a wonderful gift? To finally know, and not be stressed out, waiting for answers any longer?
Truthfully, him getting into this class is a huge blessing. Not having to wait until July is fabulous. It's just that we had several days last week in which communication was limited. Then, many many things to BUY all week this week. And all the while the question hanging over us- is this really going to happen?
Monday. Monday is the day to know for sure. It looks good. So please, say a prayer. Both that Andy will get to stay with this group of guys he has already spent so much time with, and that I will retain my sanity just a little whole longer.
On a side note. This post has been typed entirely on my phone, so please forgive any strangeness!
Until next time,
