Deployment Recap: Week 8!!

Week 8:

Emotional: Great. Being home has helped me quite a bit. I did have a little mini-cry at the races on Saturday. Everyone stood up and sang the song....gosh I can't remember the name(pathetic since it moved me so much. right!?)....proud to be an American or god bless the USA? Hearing everyone sing it made me a little weepy. I truly am proud to be an American.

Physical: I'm sick! I went running a few times this week and went on a few bike rides...but now my throat is on FIRE! I hope I kick this soon so I can start running again.

Communication: A small handful of e-mails and 2 packages!!!! He got me some of the most amazing things I have ever seen. I'm so very blessed.

What's something fun you did this week: I got to meet my new baby niece! We got to the hospital right after she was born and got to spend a good amount of time with them.

What are you looking forward to next week: My MIL and I are going to go explore the San Juan Islands for a day. It's going to be so much fun!

What made you happy this week: I made myself a new "Nonnie" they are the most amazing things EVER and I needed a new one. I also made Landon one that he loves.

What made you sad/mad this week: My niece Taylor! Shes at that great ol 12. Shes mouthy and nasty. Poor girl is changing and doesn't have her mom around to help her. Her dad is doing all he can and my mom and sister try to help, but it's got to be hard on her. Her mom would know exactly how to handle it.

What do you miss this week: My sister. Being with her kids and my brother-in-law makes me miss her extra. I miss just hanging out with her. I'm hoping to go out to her grave site soon and put some nice flowers down. I could use the time with her.

How's Landon this week: He's doing good.  He really likes being out here and having so many people play with him. He's a lucky kid.

I know what you mean about mini-cry sessions. The worst is when you cant stop the tears even when you really want to! Great pictures! Are you enjoying the Navy Wife book? I've never heard of it?

It's a pretty good book...but I left at back home when I came to WA for the summer, so it's waiting for me on my nightstand when I get back home. It's a few books....6 I think. All about the Navy life.
