Deployment Recap: Week 4!

Week 4:

Emotional: I'm a little weepy, but I always am after I get to talk to him for a few days and have to go back to not much contact. I'm taking being alone on my anniversary a little better then I thought I would, but I think that's because I have family in town and we've been busy.

Physical: I spent a few days at the pool and I'm burnt like a lobsta'. lol. My shoulders burn and part of my boobs are almost purple, HELLO skin cancer! You would think that being a red head I would know to stay away from the sun.....but I don't. He's to hoping it turns into a tan!

Communication: PHONE CALLS! Monday I spent a good part of the morning in the webcam with the sweets! He called a few times everyday and it was so amazing!

What's something fun you did this week: Oh gosh I have a list of things we did! My sister-in-law is in town and we've been keeping super busy! My favorite things were going to an amazing antique store, we went to three different state parks and saw some great beaches here in Connecticut, we went o the book barn (I will have to post about it tomorrow!), went to Mystic village and we went to some great new places to eat! It's been so much fun having her here!

What are you looking forward to next week: My Mother-in-law will be getting here tomorrow and we have a ton of things planned! Maybe a trip to upstate New York and we are going to go see "Walking with Dinosaurs!" Landon is soooo excited!

What made you happy this week: Besides getting to talk to J, I got an amazing old picnic basket from the antique store we went to. If you know me on here or in real life, we LOVE to picnic. I have a picnic bag that my Dad got me a few years back and while I love it, it's not a traditional picnic basket. I've been on the hunt for one for years and I found it! So for my anniversary, I got it for "myself". It's perfect and I'm so excited to use it!

What made you sad/mad this week: Saying goodbye again. The hardest thing about Justin calling is him not calling anymore.

What do you miss this week: Spring. This weather bites the big one. Too hot today, raining tomorrow. How abouts we keep it in the middle! Say no to humidity!

How's Landon this week: Great! Talking to his dad helped and his Aunt being here is keeping him really busy.

Pictures from this week:

Mandy was with us and as always was taking pictures all day. She got some really great ones that I can send to J!
Me, Landon & Ashley. Until these pictures I never noticed how much Landon looks like Justin's sister. It's nuts!!
My basket! I'm so in love with it! It's perfect! Now to make a new picnic quilt this summer!
