Navy Strikes Again

Dan has been gone for a week and was supposed to come home today. He called around 3 to let me know that they wouldn't be home until tomorrow due to the bad weather we've been having. Go figure. They're only home until Sunday night anyway. They might has well not even let them come home. I am sick and tired of the Navy. I am not cut out to be a military wife. I am dealing with it now because I love my husband more than anything, but thank God he wants out of it as badly as I do.

I stayed home from school today because I was feeling pretty run down and pathetic. I would have been really short with the kids and made everyone's day miserable had I been there. I've had a sore throat and stuffy nose for a few days so I went ahead and took a sick day. I woke up at 10 and cleaned the whole upstairs. It took me a few hours, but this half of the house looks and smells amazing. I spent the rest of the day napping, showering, reading, and watching tv. Pretty exciting huh?

I've started looking up flights to go home to Canton for Spring Break. Dan will be on deployment and will have been gone for 2 months so it's a great time to fly home. It's also a few days after my brother's baby is due. I'm pretty excited that I'll get to be around to experience his first child with him. I hate living so far away and missing out on important family events.

Enough of the sad story here. I hope you are all doing well.
God Bless.

We'll look forward to seeing you when you come home for spring break, if you do that is. :)

Gah, I know this is majorly frustrating for you. Just keep looking forward to next Friday. :-)

When's your spring break? I'd like to go to OH and see people. And maybe drive down and see A&J & the girls. It'd be fun to do it together!

I can't imagine being a military wife -- kudos to you for sticking it out & being a patient, loving wife. :)
