Hubby has been home for two days now and as usual its been absolutely wonderful. We have basically had a date day and night every single day. We really need it though, we have not taken time out for just us for a LONG time. I forget how amazing it is to spend time alone with him, just the two of us.
We were hoping to go camping Sunday, Monday and come back Tuesday afternoon but it does not look like we will be able to do that. The weather turned to crap today and it looks like its going to stay that way for the days we planned to be camping. We are gonna discuss it more in the next few minutes, so hopefully we can come to a decision.
The time he has here is going by very fast, as I knew it would. I have some plans for what I will do while he is gone. I know one of them is to snuggle the build a bear puppy he made me. He named it Specialist HoundDog, it has its own little desert uniform, a beret and aviator sunglasses. It says a phrase but, Hubby won't let me squeeze the puppy to find out until after he leaves.
I want to get a few military wife themed books too. I remember those helping me out the first few months he was gone, then I stopped reading them. I should probably reread them and find a few newer ones as well. I guess I will be searching the army wives board for some good reads.
I think this deployment is going to be interesting. He is going to be gone for a shorter amount of time but, he most likely will not be getting R&R. That will probably be the hardest part for me and for my stepson. He is going to go a year with only my phone influence and rarely his Dad. I know our plan is to start counseling asap, with him once Hubby gets home. Hopefully that will help.
Anyway, I have to go make a plan for what we are going to do. I am praying I can just let myself have fun and not stress out too much.
