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.....

I hope this isn't my new mantra for the next 6 months...

How do like them apples?!

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.

My heart is cracking and there is nothing I can do about it. Some days are harder than others when uncle Sam has his say...

Trick or treat?

How about a treat. Look how cute these guys are!

He was not too thrilled about the costume...
He did enjoy the spoils the costume brought~
The sweaty mess at the end of the adventure!
