Why yes, my Drama tank was getting low, thank you so much for refilling it

We're down to the final days. And it's starting to sink in.

My husband leaves in less than a month.

Yes, I know it's not a deployment, so he won't be in danger. At least, there won't be people shooting at him.

And yes, I know he gets to come home for Christmas Exodus in just a few short weeks after he leaves.

And yes, I know I'm a wuss.

But we're at that point where we are getting to the "lasts."

Getting to the last time we sit in church together....

The last time we sit in a movie theater together....

The last trip to the grocery store....

For a while, anyway.

And it's a big deal, because this will be the first time in the 12 years we have been together that we have gone for more than a couple of days without talking to or seeing one another.

Plus, we are working on selling our house, selling his car, making living arrangements for me while he's gone, transitioning our responsibilities at church and elsewhere....

I really don't have time to deal with other people's crap right now.

But, time or not, I have to. So oh well.

It's Monday, I should be doing a Weekend Wrap-up blog or a vacation picture blog or something. But my heart just isn't it in right now.

I'll be back soon, I'm sure.


  1. Hey! I know separation can be hard. I have had my share. So please let me know if you need anything!

  2. I know this is hard but keep your head up and a smile on that face! Stay super busy and it'll be over with before you know it

  3. always a bummer when they go away. and stressful. especially with so many balls in the air right now.

  4. Hang in there! You are easily strong enough to handle this and more. But I know it's not fun - and a little scary, too, especially when this is the first of the lasts. But you can do it and you'll be proud of it, too.
    So take care of yourself and chillax! :)

  5. You'll figure out how everything works ... just remember that everything is better with a smile ... even tears! :)

    Good luck!!!

  6. My husband leaves for basic in a month an a half. I am feeling the same way you are, and I am SO thankful for Christmas Exodus. Where is your husband headed? Mine leaves Nov. 16 for South Carolina.
