Deployment recap: Week 5!

Week 5:

Emotional: Drained. I've had family (Mother-in-law & Sister-in-law) in town and we have been so busy. I feel like my mind is trying to play catch up. I'm also packing for a long trip and that doesn't help my mind much at all. I have this constant feeling that I'm going to forget something. Stress is not my friend and it screws with my emotions hard core.

Physical: We've been doing a ton of walking so my feet/legs had a few rough moments. A tendon in my leg has been acting up and that's never fun. Besides that I'm doing good, looking forward to having a workout buddy when I visit home.

Communication: I've gotten quite a few sweet e-mails with him telling me how much he loved talking to me.

What's something fun you did this week: We've done a ton. One of the best things was we took Landon to "Walking with Dinosaurs" it was so much fun for all of us. I didn't really know what to expect, but I was very pleased.

What are you looking forward to next week: Going back to Washington for a visit. I've missed my family so very much and I know they love when we come to visit.

What made you happy this week: Landon has been in a super lovey mood. I've been blessed with non-stop hugs and kisses. Nothing better then love from the little when daddy is gone.

What made you sad/mad this week: Landon had to get a few shots this week. I hate when he gets them in general, but what I hate most is when they try to push more on him then he needs. If it's not required I don't get them for him. Some people may not agree, but that's how we do it, we also did a delayed schedule that they like to give me slack for. Then he had a reaction to one of the shots. It's all fine now and thank God it wasn't a serious reaction.

What do you miss this week: My partner. When things go wrong J is always there to back me up. I miss just knowing that if I need him he's there. It's a little hard when he's under the ocean.

How's Landon this week: Great! He's been so busy with family in town, and it's nice for me to get to do things without him being upset since he has other people to play with.

Pictures from this week
I love going and looking at all the old cemeteries here in Connecticut. Some date back to the 1700's.
Landon at the Dino show with his light up toy. He had so much fun.
Landon and I at dinner. Sitting outside on the patio in the sun. It was amazing.
Our view from the dinner table. This is from our table I didn't zoom at all with my camera. Amazing view.
Landon liked the bunny cloud. haha.
