Day 105: Bout half way.

Yeah, it's been one hundred and five days, already. 105 days ago my husband left for Afghanistan on this fourth deployment. 105 days ago I was a hot mess. Today, I'm not a hot mess (but getting hotter... woo woo)! Today I'm living life and trying to roll with the punches in the best ways I know how. I'm losing weight and I intend to continue down this same path! I'm working on my tan, obviously this is a huge priority. I'm going to school. I'm working hard and bringing home some of my own bacon! Yeah, I'm having a good deployment. I say we're forced into these crap-tastic, lengthy periods of time without our spouses we might as well enjoy what we can.*

I say in the title "bout half way", because we're about half way to R&R. We're looking forward to Vegas!!

Can I also just say I'm looking forward to tomorrow. "Why?" I'm sure you're wondering. Well, I'll tell you. Tomorrow is cheat day for my diet. I'm looking forward to pasta (yummm) and ice cream. Maybe beer. (I know I'm classy. Get over yourself we can't always be elegantly sipping Pinot.)


*Just because I can manage to enjoy myself doesn't me I don't love my husband. It just means I know how to be by myself. I've always been a person who needs some alone time to reflect, decompress and relax. It's how I roll. ;)

You are rockin it my love. I am very proud of all that you have done and continue to do. you have worked so hard the past few months I am glad to hear you have a day each week to enjoy yourself. You are my motivation at the gym. I cant have you being the only hot one in the relationship. I don't want people to walk by and say she is WAY out of his league I want to say she is a little out of his league. I am looking forward to Vegas with you it will be a blast. Keep up the good work my love. You continue to make me proud every day and for that I thank you.

You ROCK! :) :) Anyone who says that 'enjoying' your time [it's all relative, of course] while your husband deploys means you don't love him is full of c-r-a-p! [it also means that I didn't love my husband at all when he was deployed, and we all know that's a lie!] Why waste a perfectly good year of your life being all wah-wah-woe-is-me? :)

I don't think knowing how to be by yourself means you don't love your husband. It means you can thrive in any situation.

Good for you! I'm so glad you're having good deployment. It's inspiring to know that it's possible.

Congrats girlie! You are one strong lady, I bet your husband is awfully thankful to have such an "independent" woman like you waiting at home.
