I can't believe Christmas is in 19 days. Honestly, it could be July and I wouldn't even know it. I am so pre-occupied with moving, packing, Andy and our life right now that I have not even purchased one Christmas gift, and to be quite honest.... I probably won't.
I hate that I just can't get into the Christmas spirit... but it's just hard right now. I can't explain it, but the feelings right now are just something I've never felt before. I don't really care what is going on around me... I just want this time apart to be quick. My Andy is my best friend... he knows me better than anyone else and I just ache at the thought of not seeing him for 9 months.
I am not meaning for this to be a "woe is me" post... I just want to document how I'm feeling and let other Military wives know it's ok to be sad. "D-Day" is upon us and with this being our first deployment I'm just not sure what to expect. I'm scared. No, I'm terrified.... but I know that God has a plan in all of this and He will provide! He already has so much!!
This is our life right now... boxes all over the house :) But hey, we are almost there! Tomorrow housing comes for the pre-inspection and Sunday we move everything to our storage unit and then the final inspection from housing is on Wednesday.
Thoughts and prayers are appreciated... I haven't been feeling the greatest the last few days (flu bug and allergy issues) so I am just hoping to get through the weekend with good health! I'm going to take it easy tomorrow since we are pretty much done. Saturday, Andy and I are going to my old job's Christmas party on a riverboat and I'm super excited! We've always wanted to do this and now we have a chance. It's a night to get dressed up and not think about the deployment, moving or anything to do with the Army :)
I hope you are all doing well, and if you don't hear from me in the next week or so... it's ok. Just say a prayer of safety for my soldier.... It would make my heart happy!
