Sorry I’ve been so MIA lately! But hey, that’s life I guess!
How are you all doing?! I’m curious to know!
I’ve been Busy Busy Busy! But that’s always good during a deployment.. It helps the time fly!
But in other news, I am one happy Marine wifeyy!!
HELLLOOOO HOMECOMING DATE!! :)
I don’t know what I’d do without the awesome support system my husband and I have.. We would get through it all of course, but it really means so much to feel the support of the ones you love.
This morning around 6 am (UM YEAH I WAS DEAD ASLEEP!) my phone started basically ringing off the hook…
First it was my brother in law, then it was one of my hubby’s best friend’s ex-gfs, then it was my father in law, then it was my mother in law, then it was my other brother in law, then it was one of the other best friends, … the list goes on….. I honestly thought the world was ending.
Turns out my wonderful husband had posted this on his Facebook and everyone was trying to wake my ass up for him!
“It’s early in the morning over there, someone wake up my Darling Wife! I can’t call her right now and I’m on Skype!”
Apparently like 15 Facebook messages from him and the little tiny ‘blip’ notifications it sends to my phone was NOT cuttin it as far as pulling me from my COMA. Considering I only went to bed a couple hours prior because of a paper that was kicking my bootay.
So although I was a total zombie for our Skype visit, it was so nice to be able to talk to him and see his face, all dirty and his hair is starting to get longer.. It was especially nice to just see his face while I was in bed… ;) It was just nice having him in my bed again! haha
Anyways, after we had to disconnect, I was thinking about how lucky we are to have such great people that love us and always want the best for us. They are always there, cheering us on.. loving us.. helping us through every obstacle this military life throws our way, without ever even being asked. I just feel very blessed to know these people, and to have them in my life. I know not everyone is that lucky, but it is something I wish for everyone! Whether these people take the form of family members, or supportive friends that know what you’re going through. Make the effort to reach out and to make these connections, because they are irreplaceable!
I would just like to take this moment to once again thank Skype for it’s amazing-ness.
Holy shit. I think I could fly!
That was 45 minutes of pure heaven, getting to see my husband!!! Afghanistan is officially freezing so I’ll start to increase the amount of those hand/body warmers in his packages, but seeing him smile and hearing him laugh is making me the happiest human on earth right now :)
I got really choked up when we had to say goodbye tho… Which honestly caught me off guard because we were having such a good time and then BANG lump in the throat! Although I obviously loved visiting with him from across the planet… It made me miss him even more.. I didn’t want it to end! But thank goodness for a quick recovery once he noticed and demanded I stop that nonsense, since it would do nothing but make him feel sad… but it feels so nice to hear him tell me I’m gorgeous again and to hear that he misses me just as much as I’m missing him.
I love that man to bits.
Hip hip hooray for Skype!
I finally got to have a great, lengthy, non-cutting-outie (made that one up) conversation with my sweet husband tonight!
Going two weeks without hearing his laugh was really starting to wear on me. Especially since we are still at the beginning of this deployment, and I’m still getting used to the distance again.
He even got on Facebook and uploaded pics! Talking to him AND seeing recent pics of his handsome face?! Well aren’t I a lucky sod! ;)
As for this wifey.. I’ve got a long, very full week ahead of me so I better catch some ZZZzzZZZz’s.
Stay strong you loverly people you! And put a smile on! No need to be an Eeyore unless you’ve lost your tail! (That reference was for the…. 5 of you that have seen the new Winnie the Pooh movie…. ahem…)
I’m alive! Honest!
I guess blogging takes a major back seat when you’re hanging on to every moment you can with your hubby before a deployment!
But don’t worry, once that dreaded D-day comes and goes… I’ll probably be blogging your little eyeballs out! Although that sounds pretty gross.. Let’s just say, I’ll be more consistent.. There. ;)
And seeing how I got about 3 hours of sleep last night, drove home from Camp Pendleton at 5:30am, and have been reading and writing papers all day… It’s safe to say I’m pretty delirious right now.
So thanks for reading this blabbering nonsense ;)
I’ll post some piccies from pre-deployment leave as soon as I get a chance!
~Here is our Wedding Highlight Reel!!~
I hope you all enjoy! :)
I just love it when he has leave. My heart is oh so happy! :)
It really doesn’t matter what kind of leave it is… Whether it be pre-deployment, post-deployment, etc etc… It’s just all good times :) Although post-deployment leave always has a little more joy lingering in the air….
Pre-deployment has that tinge of ‘elephant in the room’-ness.
Although my hubby is on pre-deployment leave right now, we have learned to avoid those nit-picky arguments that sometimes arise before long separations. They happen not because we are actually annoyed with each other, they happen because of the impending good-bye. It’s almost like our subconscious tells us we are going to be separated from our other half for a long time… so if we make ourselves mad at that person… we won’t miss them as much. So dumb. So not true.
We had one of those silly arguments right after he got back from Mojave Viper, and right then and there we realized what we were doing and promised each other we would take a step back and realize what we were doing before we even said a word.
Since then… we have been nothing but lovey dovey and in the best moods ever! Pre-deployment leave is treating us oh so good!! ;)
So, with that said.. I’m curious to know if you have gone through this or something similar.. ?
Hopefully by posting this, it will help someone out there realize that they aren’t fighting because they don’t love each other, they’re fighting because they do!! And hopefully come out the other side and be able to rise above your subconscious impulses and stay away from useless arguments! There’s nothing worse than fighting with someone you know you aren’t going to see for such a long time.
Deployments and long separations can play more tricks on you than you think. It just depends on how strong you are willing to be to rise above it all! Don’t forget you have the utmost control, even over your own thoughts! Stay strong!
~Guess who got the rest of her wedding photos last night!! ~
*aka. guess who will be spamming your dash with them for the next few weeks! 0;)
~Idk why I keep watching this and crying…~
I think the pre-deployment craziness/ emotional roller coaster is setting in.
Aw, fudge. :[
BUT THIS IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL!
For those of you who have never experienced a joyful homecoming, after faithfully waiting for your man… It’s like nothing else in the WORLD! So keep staying strong! It’s so worth it! :)
This one video is why I decided to start drinking Shakeology every day.
And not to mention it seriously tastes like dessert, and satisfies my crazy sweet tooth!
THIS deployment I actually AM going to be SO much sexier when he comes home! ;)
What’s your goal? I can help you reach it!!
