one month...down

We have at least some what of a landmark on this deployment, one month down. I cannot believe how quickly it went by, i mean each day was slow as molasses, but for some reason looking back it seemed to go pretty quick. It would have a lot to do with the fact that I am very blessed to be able to talk to him via email every other day at least, which has really been wonderful. I am attached to my phone all day long until that one email comes and then I grin from ear to ear for awhile, and then its back to the normal life of classes and work. I have 8 days of classes (including finals) and 10 days total of school left until summer, which I guess could be another minor landmark. Anything to keep me going day to day and just keep looking forward to the future.

Until I have another free minute,

2 weeks down..

Two weeks into this deployment! I have been very blessed to be able to email every other day, if not everyday. This will all change soon, but for now it is wonderful! I have 3 weeks of classes and 3 days of finals and summertime will be here!

Today I got a break from work and studying to hang out with some amazing friends and see Ke$ha for free!

All I have to say is she is a nut and I love everything about her and her music. It was for one super nice outside! It was about 70 degrees and we were all a hot mess. Got to bust out a new dress, while obviously a few of my friends repped Ke$ha, wearing neon and craziness.


Today I watched "Coming Home" for the first time. I am in love. The show is so amazing. I cried the entire time, but happy tears. I forgot how happy homecomings are, and I have taken for granted how hard deployments are when there are so many families and children that go through missing their parents for many many months. Not that I don't miss B a ton and love the homecomings, I do not have it nearly as bad. I am blessed to have such an amazing support system too that helps me get through all of it.

Until Next time,

Truely Blessed

I am truly blessed. I am blessed to have such an amazing life. I am blessed to have some of the greatest friends in the world. I am blessed to have such a supportive family and home life. I am blessed to have such a courageous man in my life, who is fighting for our freedom as we speak. I am blessed. 

Today as I was walking home from the library, freezing cold (because it is still under 40 degrees in April), I realized all of this. I feel horrible that I have not noticed this before. I had such an amazing weekend off from work and got to celebrate with some wonderful friends. It is always nice to let loose and enjoy a night off. We have 4 weeks of classes left and one week of finals. Summer can not come quick enough. And once again, I have been blessed with amazing opportunities in my career field and I will once again be working with kids and adults with disabilities. I am so excited for another amazing, learning experience - while getting to do something I love.

As for now, I am petal to the metal with work and classes. Busy keeping in touch with my marine and brainstorming up some great package ideas!

Until Next time,
