For the next couple weeks I am going to walk around showing my bum :0
You see homecoming was just under a month ago. In these past 30 days we welcomed my hubby home, went on vacations, moved across country, adapted to this that, no humidity, a brand new place, having the hubby home. Which is a big adjustment on its own and we are not done we are still adjusting. 12 months can take a toll on a family, but we were doing good.
That is it until we got a call that hubby was up for his first TDY. He will leave this week and spend 3 weeks in Colorado Springs. Yeah I know its not Afghan and yeah I know its not for another whole year, but I still want to whine.
He just got home a month ago. A month! that is not nearly enough time for me to be ready to send him back again. For this month I let my big girl panties drop, I asked him to open cans, I gladly handed over the bath time routine, one more set of hands in public is always welcome, I was just getting used to waking up late on the weekends. We still have so many plans and things we want to do and yet everything has to be put on hold again.
I know, we signed up for this shit, or it got throw in our path, I am thankful I have a husband to miss, I know, but still it has only been one month?? BLAHHHHH
Anyone knows me knows I try not to whine too much, or at least I don't think I do, but now I am whining to last me a lifetime and probably tomorrow I will so regret this post, but try to understand. Here I go doing everything alone again and to top it off in a place I still haven't learned to go to Walmart and back without getting lost. I still have a couple of boxes to unpack and picture frames to hang. I am still resting off the past 12 months. I am not ready!!
So yeah I whine, but I promise I wont be like those wife that their husbands goes on a business trip and they compare that to the deployment. I promise I still remember this is Colorado Springs and asides from frostbite, his risk level is minimal, but that doesn't mean it still doesn't suck.
The pro?? He will be home on Monday to Trick or Treat and forbid any natural disaster he will be flying home the day before Thanksgiving and there is no Colorado Springs magnets on my fridge. Its the little big things right??
High consumption of wine will be necessary in order to stop this whine and once again find the strength to pull up these big girl panties ;)
