Woo Hoo....it's official, I am going crazy


I am so not one to be mopey....

I have a personal philosophy....if you can't change it, why gripe about it?? It just will make you a bitter unhappy person. But this deployment has changed this just a bit. I "allow" myself a bit of mopey-ness...for lack of a better word...after the kids go to bed every once in a while.

Today is one of those days.....we have officially hit the six month mark. That date is pivotal in that it means your days of being away from your hubby are half over. Well, today the rumor mill was going crazy...I heard that the guys are being extended three months. There is some big new conference in the morning to verify this, but in the meantime, I only have my glass of pinot grigio to console me...(btw, BIG BIG thanks to nice neighbor J for hitting up the Itchy B for a six pack of vino)...

which brings me to this fun little thing I have been wanting to use on here.....

Oh yeah, back to my 20 minutes of moping...

This deployment has taught me alot whether I wanted to learn anything or not.

*I love my husband with every little tiny cell in my body.

*I am much better with him than without him.

*I am utterly thankful his job allows me to be able to stay home with the kids. I don't know how moms that work do it.

* I can do this, but I don't WANT to.

* I love my little pampered life of sleeping late, shopping and lattes.

okay, moping officially over. I can deal with this, even if it is 90 more days.

You brought a smile to my face on a day when my e-mail brought me nothing but sadness.

Thank you for the happy. I hope the next 90 days go quickly for you. I'll keep my fingers crossed that they do.
