You know that lump you get in your throat just before you turn into a sobbing snotty mess? It's been with me all weekend and the glassy-tear filled eyes too. I can't believe that soon he'll be gone. Yes, I know that he's coming back, and yes I know that it's only 6 months, but the lump won't go away. I keep hoping that we're going to get a phone call this weekend and they're going to say, 'Whoops, our bad, he doesn't have to go...', so far the phone hasn't been ringing. I guess I will just sit around and watch as these suitcases fill themselves and wish I was going too.....

Wednesday I received the news that my best friend is to be deployed for the next six months- and he's leaving in a week. Now that a few days have passed and my emotions are off the roller coaster I can put it in print. There's so much that's going to be missed: holidays, birthdays, vacations... I wasn't prepared at all. And I don't know how to prepare the kids for this either. We will just have to show daddy how much we love him in this last week he has with us.
