I fly back to D.C. tomorrow. I don't get in until late. The only benefit to that is not having to deal with traffic when I leave the airport. I'm excited to return and see J.R. I've been thinking a lot about the deployment while I've been home. Being here in the apartment alone has brought back a lot of memories. So many quiet nights. The time that J.R. was gone is a big blur. Everyday was the same for me. I woke up, went to work, came home, ate dinner, slept.. repeat. Life didn't have the same meaning that it does now.
Unfortunately tonight I simply do not have the energy to sit and sort through the emotions that make up my life. For now I'm going to bury them in my glass of wine.
