sewing new rank on since he got promoted that day. I wish I could tell you what I spent yesterday doing, but it's majorly opsec. It's such a good story and really freaking weird, but alas. Curse my husband's new security clearance!
And we've been getting ourselves properly pumped up on dorkosterone before he leaves. I started reading Gates of Fire again. Tonight we're watching his favorite movie: Miracle. And last night we went with his Farsi class buddies to Hooters so he could get his fill of beer and ogling chicks before he leaves.
I feel pretty good this time. I don't feel scared: his job will be low-key. I don't feel bad about the length: we did longer pre-R&R last time than his entire deployment will be this time. And I feel optimistic about our chances with the fertility treatments too.
I just feel a smidge sad that my best friend is leaving me for the rest of 2008.
At least I have Charlie this time.
um, does mean he leaves, like, tomorrow now?
we are thinking of you.

Enjoy your time together. Charlie will be a great deployment buddy.
As for the fertility treatments, those must be pretty good if they work while he is deployed.

*LOL @ Butterfly Wife*
I'm sad that he's going to be gone, but happy to see that you seem to have a good grip on it all. You're awesome!

Thank you both for serving our country.

You always get my imagination going when you say those opsec things. Now I'm so curious I can barely stand it.
Call me after he leaves. Even if Tucker is screaming, Lewis is seizing, and my house is on fire all at the same time, I swear I will answer the phone.

"dorkosterone" LOL! I've been thinking about you lately, even if I haven't had time to comment. I hope the days go by quickly.

You sound really positive. You made me laugh. I got to watch every episode of The Office before my hubby left this past time.
May your time speed by!

This brought back memories of my husband's deployment! The day we said goodbye, I went to a nursery (it was in the spring time) and spent a small fortune on plants for our yard.
We were renting at that time from our in-laws so I had some freedom when it came to yard work.
I must say, it was incredibly therapeutic to put those plants in and it gave me something to do that year.
I couldn't wait for him to see it! Because really, all those hours spent in the garden was in preparation for his homecoming.
I've planted a couple gardens since then in different places- but that one will always be special to me. I did it out of love and faith.
Good luck Sarah. You'll get through this.
