Day Three Hundred Twenty

Did you know that it's only 45 days until exactly a year since Brandon left? And that he's coming home before that year mark, so it makes it less than 45 days until he's home? Nice.

I'm getting to that point where I'm just anxious for him to get back. It was like this before R&R, when time slowed down, and I'm just waiting waiting waiting for him to come back. I've spent the last ten and a half months without him. I can do it, I don't need him... but I do. It's hard to explain!

I do have some things to look forward to!! Two weeks and a couple days from now I will be officially done with my job. It's kind of frustrating when my coworkers ask why I'm leaving. I have my reasons. Number 1: Brandon is coming home and I want to spend time with him, not worrying about asking for time off or working when he's home. Number 2: I need to work on my writing career. I have an idea for a new story brewing and I need to finish editing my novel so I can get an agent. Number 3: I'm just ready to move on... and super excited too!

As for today... the only exciting part was a vendor thinking my name was Santos. Seriously. Chantal = Santos, apparently. We all had a good laugh about it!

Oh, and in other news... I signed up to be a contributing writer at the Homefront United Network!! Now I need to brainstorm story ideas... any suggestions?


  1. i am super excited for your Love to come home! :)
    not long now!
    and making a big change, like your career, always get the adrenaline pumping.

    wishing you the best of luck, and please keep us posted!

    keep strong!



  2. I am so excited for you!!

    I agree the ending goes by so slow. I got to Hawaii a day before the boat pulled in, that day in Hawaii was literally the longest day of my entire life. It will all be more than worth it soon enough :)

  3. :) I think we are both around the same amount of days left! So we can countdown together!!
    I want to read your book! What's it about?
