Day Sixty-Eight

We've been preoccupied the last couple of days with dreams about our future. Well, I've been preoccupied, and I've been dragging Brandon along for the ride.

Not much to think about when your husband is gone, though, except for what the future holds for us. I look forward to the next 6 months for when R&R rolls around. Then my mind hops to when he gets home. On from there is where we will go after Hawaii, what kind of job Brandon will have, what kind of house we'll live in... on top of all this, I think about the future of us and the little family we're planning.

All this makes me so excited! I'm just dreaming about the perfect way the pieces could all fit together and I just can't help myself. If everything works according to how we'd like it to, we will both be happy (hopefully!) and have a fairly solid future, at least for a bit. I know the Army has a beautiful way of ruining plans, but maybe for this once, can we win, Big A? Pretty pretty please?

Everything is good on the home front. I told Christina today that we should have a 100 Days party! It would be difficult considering her husband left a couple weeks before mine, and Michelle's husband left just over a week after mine. Hm... should we go off of my 100 days? Have a party for each 100 days? Average it out? Good news, though! We're under 300 days left!

How was your Labor Day? We went store hopping, spending too much, having a good time buying things we both need and didn't need. Then it was dinner at Christina's friends house and then back home late to a hyper puppy, an online husband and some Army Wives. Oh! I finally finished the series! I'm all caught up. :D

Anyway... do you spend time dreaming of the future while your SO is away?


  1. Oh my gosh, yes!!! I feel so much better after reading this, lol! I swear I spend half the time he's gone thinking about the future - R&R, homecoming, 3 years from now: re-enlistment or see ya later, Army, plans for babies... I really get carried away with myself some days...

  2. I dream about the future all the time, while he's here or not!!! I have to remind myself that I also need to be present in the moment and not get too lost in what is to come!!!

  3. I LOVE daydreaming about our future! It helps me so much! Right now, daydreaming about R&R and researching where we will go and what we do! I'm glad I'm not the only one!

  4. I always dream about the future when my husband is gone. Sometimes this helps me get through deployments, thinking about all the things we're going to do when he gets back. Great post!

    Thanks for linking up on the mil spouse roundup! Hope to see you again next week.
