I'm a teacher who is following her husband where ever his career in the Air Force takes us. We've been through a 6 month seperation for training. We've made a move from the city to a small town in the middle of nowhere. We've adopted a new furbaby. I've found a new job. We've been through a deployment. Through all of this, we've learned to embrace change and all that it brings.
I've made it through the first week of our first deployment! I have to say, while I missed Anthony huge, it really wasn't as bad as I thought. I have stayed busy during the day with work. Anthony and I have got to talk lots on Skype. I get to start my day by talking to him before work and end my day by talking to him just before falling to sleep. That's really helped. I've also eaten LOTS of these homemade oatmeal cookies I made last week.
These two guys have been keeping me company. They shower me with lots of kisses and snuggles. These pictures are in the morning just before I leave. They look so sad!
I've also done some shopping here and there to keep me busy. This week Target had their swimsuits on sale and I had been checking out the polka dotted ones. I had a gift card AND they were on sale, so I decided I NEEDED to get one! Here's the one I ended up with.
This weekend, me and the guys are heading to see my family for the 3 day weekend. Then I have a day and a half of school left, then it's SUMMER time!!! One of the best perks of being a teacher!
