Reality Check

Hubs leaves early early tomorrow morning.  I have to drop him off.  I will probably cry.  I'm going to take our ever-dependable-always-happy puppy with me.  All I have to do is look at him and he makes me smile.  This month is not going to be fun and it's only a month!!  If I'm this bummed out about Hubs leaving for NTC, I can't even imagine all the emotions I will be experiencing over the next couple months as we prepare for his deployment.  

I'm trying to focus on the other things I have going on this weekend.  I have a Mary Kay marketing event on Sunday, I have to work at the Buckle on Saturday, and I have plans with friends on Friday.  I am hoping that I will keep myself busy enough that I won't feel the void of Hubs being away.  I thought I was facing the deployment head on.  Turns out, I'm just really good at distracting myself and not thinking about the reality of the situation.  

I recently started reading Nicole's Blog.  She is a gifted writer and beautiful Christian woman.  I've found comfort in the words she shares about the challenges of deployment.  Her blog has been both a source of information as well as encouragement as Hubs and I head into this crazy year.  Stop by her blog sometime.  You won't regret it.

  1. You are such a sweetheart, Kait! This totally made my week :) I'm so glad someone has found comfort in the words on my blog. Deployment definitely isn't fun, but it's doable. You seem like a strong girl who has Jesus on her side so you're bound to succeed my friend :)

    Glad to have you following along!
