I think Brody is going to really LOVE his new home. I know he's going to love the pool. But I know as much as he's going to love it there, we're going to miss him more!
He was our first baby. It's hard getting used to him not being there... even getting used to him being in the way and being under foot.
We picked up a huge bone to distract Brody. He loved that one too!! Getting Brody over to San Diego was a huge step toward leaving. It kind of brought the leaving aspect of this PCS to the forefront. Just a little while ago I was talking to my sister and she said it breaks her heart that Brody is gone because it just means that leaving is getting closer. I told her I try not to think about it. It's true too. I try to avoid the leaving aspect and thinking about the "Good-byes" to come. Thats the part I'm looking forward to the least. It's sort of pre-deployment-esque. The build-up is there yet I just want to get it started.... tear off the band aid, if you will.
In other news I'm considering a Going Away Party. I had some ideas which lead to my finding out that my homies were going to plan me a Surprise Going Away Party.... maybe letting someone else plan it and host it would be a great idea after all. hmmm.
