Guess what tomorrow is?


How freakin' fantastic is that? That means we're another month closer to Texas, Fall, and then Brian!! I'm wicked excited!

Today makes the fourth day in a row that I haven't heard from Brian. I know that I shouldn't count, but I just can't help it. I'm worried that he's working too much and not sleeping, or getting sick in that dang hot heat. I got a letter today that he mailed last week, and I just miss him a million times more... Soon soon soon. This will all be over before I know it.

Have you heard this? My new favorite song! I love Leighton Meister!

YAY! I'm finished with half of my first class! Just one big test left, and I'm done! I'm going to schedule it in the next few weeks, and hopefully I'll be able to get some studying in while I'm recuperating from my stuff. I know that wisdom teeth surgery isn't the most traumatic, but I have no tolerance for pain at all so I'm expecting to be out for a couple of days...

Also, there is some major sister/brother in law drama going on. I try not to get involved because I hate unneccessary drama, but with her living here and asking my advice it's really hard to stay out of it. Not neutral, because I'm on Molly's side no matter what. She just is really bad at sticking to her guns and doing what is in her and my neice's best interests, in my opinion. The frustrating part is that her plans are getting screwed up and it is affecting my moving plans (she is my co-pilot). I'm not sure if I'm going to postpone the move for a few weeks (months?) or just go without her... Whatevs. Plenty of time to figure it out I suppose.

Brian hasn't been in touch for a few days. It sucks because I know that there is tons of stuff going on there (not bad) and I feel so out of the loop. Hopefully he'll be able to call tomorrow!!

My crazy awesome husband! Isn't he so cute??

Another day down.

Brian called! And made me feel lots better.

I thought I'd lost the bracelet that he got me for our first Christmas together, and I was soooo sad. I hadn't seen it in weeks. And then today, randomly, I checked under my keyboard, and voila! there it was! I'm so relieved!! He was pretty excited I hadn't lost it too.

Yup, that's about it.

Sweet dreams, kids.

And the winner is...

... Bronchitis!! But now I have drugsssss, and a handy souvenir x-ray of my lungs, so life is pretty fantastic!

B didn't call today.
Or, I thought he did, but when I answered there wasn't anyone there. I miss him. ER visits alone make me miss him. I also watched our new favorite show, "Here Come the Newlyweds" today, and I know that he would have loved it and laughed with me and teased me a little bit when I teared up b/c I'm a huge sap lately. I hate never talking to him. I hate having my best friend a million miles away and trying to store up every detail of every day, and spit it all out in 20 minutes on the phone, while he's trying to tell me his and at the same time we're trying to be happy and enjoy each other and not pretend that we're so sad, even though we know the other one is. (Usually 'cause I can't help but tear up a bit, and he just tells me so). And then we spend the last few minutes on the phone having our daydream convo about how wonderful it will feel just to be together again, and how we only have however many months left, and we always try to pretend like it isn't a lot even though it really is.


But, it is okay. I know he loves me and he knows I love him and these tortorous months spent apart only make our days together more sweet.

Sorry for the whining, on to more cheerful things...

I'm getting my wisdom teeth removed!!
I should probably not be so excited, but A) I won't have to worry about having it done anymore, and B) I've never had surgery before, so I'm kind of excited about the whole thing! I know that afterwards I probably won't be so pumped, but right now things are pretty awesome.

K, off to bed 'cause I can't stop rambling and have to be up early to watch Sweet Alyssa. Maybe a more coherent post later? If you're lucky!

So, it turns out the sickness was not imaginary.
I've been coughing up a lung, literally, all weekend.
I hope to make it to the doctor tomorrow.
Or just magically wake up and be healed. We shall see.
This whole nasty-asthma-lazy-lungs thing makes colds a lot worse in general.
(or whatever this is, I'm not pretending I didn't checkuponit with WebMD, but I'm still not convinced...)


Brian called, and we have a window of redeployment!!!

and, there is a slight possibility that I will have a husband for Christmas!!!

I'm trying not to get too excited, but also mentally planning to put up my holiday decor immediately upon my return to Texas, just to make the time fly by faster, yaknow?

Soooo, until then, lots more dayquil and political theory of the Declaration of Independance. So exciting, I know.

Happy First Day of Summer! One season closer to being done this dang thang!

Holy Sinus Infection!...

...but a happy one at that!

I talked to Brian today!

And I told my 'boss' that I'm leaving at the end of July!

And I wrote 1/4 of the paper that I've been putting off for weeks!

And I get to sleep in tomorrow!

And I buffed out almost all of the scratches on my hood!

And Molly didn't make me Shred with her today 'cause I was sick!! (But she did make me commit to a Sunday workout, and already threatened me with not-skinniness if I don't Shred with her tomorrow)

And I'm kind of hoping that this sickness is all in my head and I'll wake up fine tomorrow! (Especially because I'll have to snort saline solution and my mom will sing 'Turning Japanese' like she does, 'cause she is mean.)

AND I get to go to sleep right now! Sweet dreams Peeps!

Ain't No Sunshine.

My yesterday was really bad, and I don't want to go into it, but some of the highlights are:

-finding out about a $6,600 school loan I didn't know existed (and it's nice little $1,400 compounded interest)
-being psyched out by the vet
-one runaway puppy
-one sad puppy
-having the car washed, with rocks
-finding out how irrepairable car scratches are if they go through the paint
-headlights out
-a big boring paper to write

I know that none of these things are end-of-the-world style, but smooshed into one day makes for a very rough one. On top of all of that Brian is still mostly MIA, with a few phone calls here and there. He is so tired, I wish so much I could help more than this...

So, I am determined to make my tomorrow a happier one, even if I'm spending ten hours at 'work'.

I just got to cuddle and rock my sweet neice to sleep, and then eat cheesecake. Earlier today my husband called and we had a daydream convo about our happy home in Texas. At work I played with the crazy pup, rolled down the hill with sweet Maddy, and watched Aladdin.
And, best of all, it's one day closer to seeing my B again! YAY!

Would I be crazy to move to Texas in August?
Unfortunately, that may be the plan. Dang it. Having a real job would be pretty exciting though, and I need to support my shopping habit the best I can.
In other news: My husband rocks.
I miss him a lot.
I just checked my donut of misery, and we're not quite halfway done. I'd like a hug.
Deployments suck.

Here we are again...

meeting him at the airport... the best feeling!

my B enjoying the coast

...and the last.

Does everyone feel this melancholy at the end of R&R? I mean, I know I should be hopeful, but the end of this tour feels so faaaaaaar away, I just want to hug him one more time.

While he was here it was so easy to forget that it was only temporary. We laughed and held hands and ate yummy food and enjoyed being together. We did lots of 'Maine' things and lots of couple things and lots of family things. It felt really good, but it passed by far too quickly.

So, yeah. I'm melancholy and drowning my sorrows in greasy food and sleep. Tomorrow will bring heavy lifting, baby laughs, and one day closer to when he comes home for good(ish). I can't wait.

Until next time, Peeps.
