Deployment Recap: Week 16!

Week 16:

Emotional: Better! I'm still not quite where I want to be. but I feel like I'm getting back in my groove!

Physical: This weather gets me every time! Hot to cold, hot to sinuses are draining and I haven't felt the best. But I've gotten back into my routine! Cleaning and working out are my friends again! Now if I could just stay away from the pasta I would be fine!

Communication: A few phone calls early this week. I got a few surprise ones, which are always the best.

What's something fun you did this week: Landon and I went out for ice cream one day after school. It's not often that I do things like that, but it was a fun treat. I'm learning that I don't always have to have someone with me to do things and that it's nice when it's just little and I.

What are you looking forward to next week: A little get together with some of my mommy friends. It should be fun!

What made you happy this week: Justin. He called late one night(like 1-2 AM) to say goodbye. Talking to him is always amazing, but I love it when I don't think he's going to call and he does. We both got a little teary. He told me how much it meant to him that I was always excited to talk to him, like it was the best part of my day. I told him that it was and went on to say how much I love him and how proud I am of him. I can tell when he gets really quiet that he's getting choked up. He makes my heart happy.

What made you sad/mad this week: Nothing really. Landon has been doing really well in school and while he's tired and can be testy at home, he really is great. So I have nothing to be sad/mad about!

What do you miss this week: My heater! It's starting to get cold here and J is the best bed warmer there is! I miss snuggling in bed with him and putting my cold feet on him to warm up.

How's Landon this week: GREAT! He started full day Kindergarten today! I had 6 hours to do whatever I wanted! lol. I didn't know what to expect when I picked him up.....he was soooo happy! He loved it! He said he had the best day and loved that he got to buy hot lunch. He told me about everything he did and had nothing bad to say, he didn't even say that it was boring or too long. I think it's going to be perfect for both of us!

We had a Wizard day!

Going to school! I love that purple shirt!
