To my Hero

It is almost 8 and the kids are in bed. I convinced them to go to bed at 7:30 and said they could read for 30 minutes. We had a amazing day. You will not believe it but Michael was done with school before 3pm and Faith was done before that even with her reading. Today has been a crazy day. Someone locked our bathroom door and I could not get it unlocked so I took the whole knob off. Hopefully that will be fixed before you get home. I made the kids go for a walk with me this morning. Right around the corner was this cute lab and he literally walked with us the entire way and then hung out in the yard for a while. We do not have kittens YET but I think we will soon. Today she wanted me to hold her all day but she did not just lay there she kept flopping over on her back and nudging me in the face constantly. And then guess what she did SHE BIT MY CHIN. Not painful but it scared me. Then she was making all these noises. I thought for sure she would have had the babies by now.
I have done pretty good today, I did lose it in the garage for a few minutes when I heard the planes fly over. They were so low. It just reminded me that I have no idea where you are right now or what you are doing. I always wonder what you are doing. Did you eat today, are you getting along with everyone. I know it sounds silly but you are in a new place with people you do not like. Did you sleep well last night. I cannot even remember what time it is there.
You will be proud of me I woke up with a headache and guess what? I TOOK ALLERGY MEDS. I am trying hard to stay healthy. I called the phone company and learned how to forward the phone so when you call I will not miss you.
Tonight we had spaghetti for dinner and I made 3 coffee cakes for later. Last night I cut out more camera strap covers and will probably finish them up tomorrow. We are going to try to go grocery shopping tomorrow. I cannot believe how low we have gotten.
I love you baby and hope that you can call soon but completely understand it is not your issue. This last picture was of Grace in bed tonight. She did not get a nap today so it took her a second to fall asleep.

(((HUGS))) Pam! I totally understand what it feels like to have a hubby away for a deployment... NO fun! And I can't imagine doing it with kids! You're just as much of a soldier as he is! I'll be praying for you and your family!!!

Julie said...

Oh Pam..thanks so much for sharing this with all of us. Just a reminder for us to keep you all in our prayers!! Whenever I see your sweet face on blog frog..I pray for you.

Could you refresh my memory again...where is your husband deployed?

Hang in there girl....while our husbands are the heroes everyone thinks about when they think of Army (military) and deployments, as a fellow military wife I just want you to know that YOU are a hero too. You keep your hero's family safe, protected and provided for while he's away fighting for our country. He knows he's left his family in good hands and he loves you so very much. I hope you hold onto that during this deployment, and hoping you hang onto the Lord even tighter during this time.

Hang in there. I am thinking of you.
