Here We GO!

124 days to go! That's it. 124 days until we're out of the Navy and free to live happily and enjoy our marriage together. Today is Dan's 2,000th day in the Navy. Wow. When I think of 124 days compared to 2000, it's nothing. When I think of it as a little over 4 months on the other hand....

Here we are the night I dropped him off at the ship. One last picture for me to stare at.

I'm doing much better than I had thought I would. I had a few hours this afternoon of, "poor me, what am I going to do?" time, but quickly realized, that is not the attitude I want to have for the next 4 months.

This morning my sister-in-law and I went to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and watched the ship deploy. I wasn't sure if this was a good idea or not, but figured I'd kick myself in the butt years from now if I didn't. It was very cold outside, but beautiful. The bay is amazing and watching the ship go by gave me a sense of pride. My husband was on that ship; giving another 4 months of his life to defend and protect our country. Those men and women said goodbye to all they loved. What a sacrifice.

I of course, being the scrapbooker that I am, took many pictures. Here are a few of the good ones.

Here they come!!!

He's gone.

I'm still sick.

I've been in bed for 2 days.

The 4-5 month countdown begins.

I will write more when I'm better.

Thanks for all your support.

It's been a long long time....

I have been a terrible blogger and I apologize.

My husband is deploying on Friday.

I promise to update my blog more once he's gone.

I'll need a place to talk.

This sucks.
