August 14th, 2009

Here's how my days go lately:

9:12am: Yay! It is officially a new day! I cross a day off the calendar and stand back to admire this incredible improvement to its design.

10:45am: Absorbed in reading the articles at, time passes by quickly as I either cheer or boo the screen.

12:03pm: Yay! The day is half over. But no, I remember that the afternoon drags on indefinitely.

3:29pm: Listlessly wandering around the house, unable to focus on reading or cleaning or eating or any other activity. But it's almost four o'clock!! Soon it will be evening!

6:32pm: Thank goodness! Soon it will be dark and the day will be over.

8:45pm: The day is over!! Let me count the days for the zillionth time...

12:04am: It's the next day!!! Oh joy!! Now please, for the love of Pete, can I fall asleep now?

Rinse and repeat, for the past week and for several more days left to go.

People who say that the very end of deployment is one of the worst stages are absolutely right.

Oh my goodness, look at the time!! It's already 1:30pm!! Yay!!

My days seem to drag on and Sean isn't even deployed, so I feel your pain on that.

I can't wait until you have him home again.
