Deployment Weekly Recap: Week 17

Emotional: I am doing well! We are on the the back end of this deployment and my husband will be home before I know it!

Physical: I've lost ten pounds so far on my diet and have started running on my treadmill. I ran three times last week and am up to 1.25 miles. I'm doing a 5k mud run this summer :)

Communication: Lots of emails make me a happy girl!

What's something fun you did this week: I took William to the aquarium and we had lunch together. I also went shopping in RI yesterday with Amanda and her boys. I try to get out as much as I can, especially since we were cooped up for a while with sickness.

What are you looking forward to next week: Our FRG halfway party is this weekend and my parents are coming down to watch William so Mommy can have an adult night out!

What made you happy this week: I was talking to a couple at the restaurant where I had lunch with William. I went to pay for my lunch and found out that they took care of it for me. It was really nice of them and I plan to pay it forward.

What made you sad/mad this week: It looks like Jimmy might not be coming with us to Aruba because he has to do some training before his new job for shore duty. I was really looking forward to the three of us basking in the sun.

What do you miss this week: Sex...yep...I'm there now.

How's William this week: He is well! We are over the sickness that we got around Christmas time. He's starting to move around more, but not yet crawling. His smiles make my days bright :)

Favorite song/show/movie of the moment: I really like Titanium by David Guetta and Sia

 My little man is 8 months old!

Deployment Weekly Recap: Week 15

Emotional: Things have been going pretty well around here. I feel grounded and positive.

Physical: Great! I started back on the diet that got me skinny before I got pregnant and I'm dropping weight already. I'm hoping to be within 10 lbs of my pre-pregnancy weight by the time Jimmy comes home.

Communication: I've had two emails, which is pretty good considering emails have been few and far between during this deployment.

What's something fun you did this week: William and I went to NH to do extended family Christmas. It was fun to see all of the new babies (3 this year). William is the first boy in 11 years for my family so he got a ton of attention.

What are you looking forward to next week: FRG potluck and hopefully a trip to the aquarium.

What made you happy this week: Seeing my family. I haven't seen them since August. I need to try to make it up there more often.

What made you sad/mad this week: I look at pictures of William and see how much he has grown since Jimmy left. He is missing so much.

What do you miss this week: Jimmy emailed me and mentioned how we found this amazing New Orleans-style restaurant while we we driving through a blizzard a few years ago. I miss the silly adventures that we end up going on.

How's William this week: He is doing much better. He's back to sleeping in his crib and he's being happy again. I love it when he's doing well!

Favorite song/show/movie of the moment: Downton Abbey starts tonight!!!!!
