Deployment Recap: Week 15!

Week 15:

Emotional: Drained still. Coming back from WA and Landon starting school the next week was a lot to take on. J is in port, and I find myself acting a little off. I know I'm tired and I know he's been busy and tired also....I just seem to be whining and tear up at any moment. I caught myself doing this and yesterday was a lot better.

Physical: Exhausted! I don't know what is going on! I know I'm not really sleeping that well, but I'm so tired during the day. I need to get moving and get into a routine. Casey and I are starting at the gym next week so that should help.

Communication: Lots of Skype! He's in a hotel so he has Wifi in his room. He calls after they are done with dinner and we talk for a few hours before he goes to bed. The connection isn't the best so I can see him but sometimes our camera messes with his connection. But it's been nice.

What's something fun you did this week: Landon and I have done a lot of things just the two of us. We went out on a date night to dinner and it was just so much fun. I want to do date nights at least once a month with him.

What are you looking forward to next week: Nothing. And by that I mean HAVING NO PLANS! I feel like everything has been soooo planned that last 3 months. I want to do whatever I want when I want. Lol and go to the gym.

What made you happy this week: Landon started Kindergarten! He's growing up so fast! He loves his teacher and already has some friends. I think it's going to be a really good year.

What made you sad/mad this week: I was sad that J wasn't here on Landon's first day. But he was here last year so I guess that's good. J did call right as we were heading out the door and got to talk to Landon before he went to school. He also sent him a really cute e-card for his first day. But it was hard not to be sad.

What do you miss this week: Feeling safe at night. I've been scaring myself at night and I think that's why I'm not sleeping. I know I have nothing to worry about, but I always feel safe when J is home.

How's Landon this week: Testy. Lol. Part of it might be my fault. I really haven't been doing much when we are home. But he's pushing his limits with not listening. We had a good talk about it yesterday and I hope things get better.

Pictures from this week:

Talking to Daddy on the phone right before going to school!

So cute! Gosh I love him! Getting ready to go!

After school we went to the splash park with his friend Adrian. The boys had so much fun!

Then last. I love getting surprise pictures from people of my husband. This is when they were on top pulling into port. I guess it was VERY hot.
I love that you can see the flag in the background!

I know exactly how you feel about feeling safer when your husband is home. I am the same way. **Hugs**
