4 months! 4 months! 34% out of a year behind me. FOUR MONTHS!
Some days, it's hard to think about four months. I don't like to imagine another four months, and then another, that I have to go through. Sure, I have things to look forward to. In the next four months, he'll be coming home for R&R. I'll be going home for Christmas. I have lots to keep me busy. It's just frustrating, you know? But we've made it this far, we can make it another four months!
Most days are great, but sometimes it's hard. It's usually right before bed when it's dark outside and the house is quiet. I'll remember that it's just me here. My chest feels heavy, my stomach feels like there's a hole in it. You know that feeling, right? That feeling that something's missing? Yeah, I get that sometimes. The best cure is to sleep it off, so thank goodness it shows up right before bed. (Ok, I lied, the best cure is Brandon!)
So here we are, deployment. Let's see what you have in store for me in the next four months.
In other news... I started my work day kind of grumpy. I got the short straw and was given the crappiest desk this morning. But eventually I pulled myself up and had a good, productive day.
Also.... NaNoWriMo started today! I woke myself up at 6:30 (my alarm was set for 6 but when it went off, I said eff that and slept some more. Mostly because I had two dogs chasing a cat at 2am...), and sat down to write. Today I wrote 1776 words in my new novel! Let's see what tomorrow brings. :D
