Reminders

I can't resist sharing this picture with everyone. It is just one more reminder of just how long we have been away from home. This box of kleenex has been sitting on top of my toilet for months now. I thought about buying a new box but I figured at the rate things are going I may as well just leave this one up so I wont have to decorate when I get home for Christmas. Gotta love the Army.

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.

I hope you have a safe trip back.

I had to laugh at the Christmas kleenex box!!

Memories are funny things, how they can effect you.
