Good Sunday Evening

I'm missing my wonderful DH today. The last few days have been difficult. I'm trying to snap out of it but... it's not easy. I'm trying to force myself to keep busy.

After church today, I took the kids to the $.99 movie to see "Nanny McPhee." It was so good!! I really enjoyed it. So did the kids but I think I enjoyed it the most. It is definitely one I will buy. I loved it.

When we got home, we picked up the house a bit and then the kids played outside for a while. I gave DD a short piano lesson. She gets discouraged a little too easy but she is doing well.

DS had a terrible headache that was appearing to be a migraine so I sent him to bed with a cool pack on his head. Poor kid. They were rolling around in the grass and I think it upset his allergies. So he's not going to Youth at church tonight. He didn't go last week either since my parents were here. I don't know what I'm going to do with him.

Anyway, now I'm sitting here eating a bowl of ramen and waiting for DH call. I miss him so very much. I'm ready for him to come home and stay. So is he! He's ready for retirement. Only 6 more years! Yea!! Then I don't know what we'll do. That's one we will worry about later.

When DS got so sick I slacked off on my letter writing to DH so I'm slowly picking that back up. He says he doesn't care if I write or not since we talk so often but I know that having a letter he can read over and over really helps. I know that I love those!!

Well, I guess I've rambled enough for now. Until next time...


  1. I hope things get better for you, thanks for stopping by! I haven't been by for awhile-1/2 way done for you, soon it will be over.

  2. Yes, I'm so glad we are half way done. I'm fine. We just lost a few soldiers last week and it has shook me up a little. I had convinced myself DH was super safe. I need to convince myself of that all over again now.

    Good to hear you are getting so close to the end of your tour. Stay safe!! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Man, I can not fathom what it would be like to know Honey was gone for so long. I admire your ability to keep it up. (whatever it may be) Wish I could pull up a kitchen table chair and a cup of tea,

  4. It would be nice the share a pot of tea with you.

    DH was able to call last night and that helped a lot. It helped to be able to "be there" for him as he told me about the memorial service for his soldier.

    Sometimes that's the hardest part... not being able to be there to share all the hard stuff... to give him a hug when I can hear in his voice he needs one.

    I'm sure it's just as hard for him when he hears about the kids being sick... not being able to hold them... or when I'm hurting not being able to hold me. He does a great job from afar though.
