What a different a year makes

A few days ago I wrote an entire post dedicated to my distain for our current situation, regarding our impending PCS. I was long and drawn out. When I was proof reading I got sick of myself... By the end of it I was like "really, lady?" So, I'm going to opt not to post about that today.

Today I'm thinking about where I was this time last year. My husband had been in Afghanistan for about a week and a half and I had been in an airplane for about 2 and half hours (it's 1220 PM in Germany). I was headed back to the states to surprise my family at my nephews 1st Birthday Party. My husband knew I had a ticket back to the States and that I would be flying on his birthday (yes my man is a lucky baby, born on St. Patty's). I was on the plane worrying that I wouldn't be able to speak to him on his birthday. Luckily it worked out and we were able to chat online for a minute before I crashed after 15-someodd hours of travel.

Today, Kevin and I are enjoying his birthday together. Low Key around the house. We planned to take a nice long walk, as Spring has recently sprung here in Germany. But none of my clothes would fit. I swear I gained about 10 pounds overnight. Grr... Anywhoodle, There's no Afghanistan this year. There's no 10 hour flight. We're together and we are thankful. We are so excited and anxious for the year ahead; our babe! Yeah, I am apprehensive, nervous and anxiously awaiting information about where I'll be delivering my precious bundle of joy the end of this Summer... but for today I'm going to put that aside and enjoy my hubby and spoil him on his birthday!!

Happy Birthday to your man! What part of Germany? My sister was stationed there for two years and LOVED it! She also had a baby there :)
