It's been a few days since I've written. I just haven't had the motivation to do so. Does anyone read this? Does anyone care? If so, please leave a comment and let me know. I sure don't want to blog for myself.

Today was a great day. Had you asked me 3 days ago if today would be great I'd have cried and hid under the blankets in my bed. I have to acknowledge my sister-in-law for the greatness. She drove drove down from Newport News to spend the afternoon with me. She knows what it's like to be a crazy Navy wife and to be alone all the time. She also knows how important it is to have human interactions every so often.

We went to Panera for a delicious lunch. Might I say that their chicken salad sandwich is to die for? Love it. After lunch we headed back to my house and spent some time wandering through the baby nursery designs on HGTV.com. This only making my yearning and desire for a child even worse. That story is for another day. We spent the next few hours sitting on the couch chatting away. I never thought I could sit and talk to someone for so long, but it came so easily. I realized (not that I didn't know before) that I am SO lucky to have her as a sister. I grew up with 3 brothers and always wanted a sister. I was mad at my parents for robbing me of that "sisterly bond" everyone always talks about. Now I have what I always wanted. Sisters. 3 to be exact :) So, thank you Valli for spending the day with this crazy Navy wife and letting me talk your ear off until rush hour began :)

Awwwww, love you, Caiti! I agree, this afternoon was lovely. You know that you're lucky when you can sit and talk to your sister-in-law for like six hours straight, and right now I consider myself very lucky. I felt...accomplished afterward. Like we'd both solved things. At least for today! :-P

That's great that you have someone to keep you company.

Hey Caiti...I just wanted to tell you I read your blog! And I think it's great to have some great supports around when the hubby is deployed or on duty.
