One week down...

So Blair has been gone for five days now. This week has not been as bad as I thought it would be. (I guess prepare for the worst and hope for the best, huh?) I kept super busy on Monday, fairly busy on Tuesday and Wednesday I slept all day. Wednesday was ok until I was fixing my dinner for work and as I was putting the lid on the container I saw our last name. For some reason that made me really sad and I shed a few tears. Thank God for my sister, though. She must have known that I was sitting there watching Sweet Home Alabama and crying, because she called and invited me over. It was just what the doctor ordered!! My sister has been great through this, very supportive, willing to help me keep my off of things.
It also helps that Blair and I get to talk on the phone frequently. He's not been as busy this week as I thought he would be so he's not been to tired to talk. I really love to hear his voice and it helps me to imagine that he's still close. I'm hoping that the days will pass by quickly. This week has, thank goodness.

Sweet Home Alabama is just one of those movies...go right on ahead and cry if you need to! The part where she's talking to the dead dog always gets me :) Call if you need anything.

You will do great & before you know it, your hubby will be back in your arms! I'm so glad you have a blog now, which will occupy your time even more while he's gone. It can be great therapy for you (if you need it)!

Hey Laura...it will pass. The military has alot of benefits, but the separations are the pits.

The great thing about being a working adult is the things that you have to occupy your days - makes them pass so quickly!

He'll be home before you know it.
