Deployment Recap- Week 29

Emotional: Umm..pretty good except for crying during White Christmas. Don't ask...I have no idea why.

Physical: Very good! I lost 3.2 pounds this past hopefully I'll keep going in that direction

Communication: He's super, super busy right now so I got another quick email. I totally understand and i'm super busy now too so it's not big deal

What's something fun you did this week: I hung out with some fellow Navy wives and watched the Army/Navy football game. It was nice to take a much needed break from my end of semester workload!

What are you looking forward to next week: THE END...of this semester and this weekly update

What made you happy this week: Seeing friends and watching White Christmas. It's my favorite x-mas movie and I love how they show it back to back. It's been playing in the background while I type papers

What made you sad/mad this week: The crazy amount of work I've had to do for school. It's just bad timing. Right before Jimmy comes home. I have so much that I have to do for school and all I want to do is make sure the house is clean and there's food in the fridge.

What do you miss the most: I missed doing all of the Christmas-y stuff with him this year. I had fun getting our tree together and decorating the house last year

How's Floyd and Layla this week: Layla is recovering nicely and Floyd could really use a walk right about now but I'm a slave to my computer for the next couple of days

Pictures from this week: None, too busy...sorry

Deployment Recap- Week 28

Emotional: I got to spend a couple of days in Athens and then met up with my husband's boat in Cyprus for 5 fantastic days. I still cried like a little girl when we had to leave even though I knew he'd be home soon. I'm so grateful that I had the opportunity to see some amazing sites and that I spent some quality time with him.

Physical: Good! I was really run down overseas for a the first few days or so (I got 17 hours of sleep in 4 days) but I felt much better after getting a good night's sleep with my husband next to me. I ate a lot of really awesome Greek food and now I'm starting Weight Watchers all over again and am determined to stick to it.

Communication: I just got my first email this morning since when I last saw him. Obviously communication was great while we were together. We only got snippy with each other when we got lost and ended up walking around for 2 hours in search of a restaurant we both agreed on. We laughed at each other after I reminded him that he loves me, even when I am completely indecisive.

What's something fun you did this week: Well saw a bunch of stuff in Athens, took a 3 island cruise of the Saronic Gulf, saw my husband, got drunk with my husband and some sailors (I can't keep up), took a jeep safari through the mountains of Cyprus, basically had the time of my life. More recently, I got my Christmas tree and am starting to decorate for the holidays.

What are you looking forward to next week: Being done with presentations? I'm in crunch time at school so there isn't much to look forward to until it's all over...which happens to be right before my husband gets home.

What made you happy this week: Spending time with the man whom I love

What made you sad/mad this week: Saying goodbye to my husband...even though I know I'll see him again really soon, it doesn't make it much easier.

What do you miss the most: Watching him was nice to be able to do that for a little while.

How's Floyd and Layla this week:Layla is Frankenkitty after her surgery. She is doing well and gets her stitches out tomorrow. Big thanks to Kim for taking care of her while I was gone. Floyd is happy to be home and is anxiously awaiting the arrival of his Dad

Pictures from this week: Blogger doesn't seem to like my Mac so it doesn't let me rearrange pictures easily. The top two are of the husband and I at various points during our safari of the Trodos Mountains in Cyprus. The bottom left is me kissing him for the first time in 6 months and the bottom right is me in front of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece.
