And so the deployment begins. We now start the waiting for homecoming plan.
Is it sad that I already started planning homecoming. He hasn't even been gone 24 hours and I am already thinking about homecoming. I am thinking about what I will wear, what Miss A will wear, what the homecoming signs will say, everything. Yeah it may be a bit early but honestly each day is one day closer to him so I will do what I need to do.
The thing I don't like about deployments is how easily I cry over them. I can not even begin to tell you the feeling when I was in the airport just standing there hugging him knowing that I will not hug him again for a while. It was no good. I cried. People looked at us. I get that it drew attention. I understand this. But I still wish people had been respectful enough to look away. They had to know it was a hard moment for us both. The tears in his eyes almost killed me. Walking away was the hardest thing I have ever done. I hate saying goodbye. I'd rather say.. see you soon. So thats what I think I will do.
JMS - I love you. I am proud of you. You are so incredibly amazing and I can not wait for the day I can hug you again. See you soon my love!!
