The last time my husband left, it was buying shampoo that made me realize he was leaving. This time it was tortillas.

I pack lunches for my husband to eat at work, and usually I make him wraps. As I bought a ten-pack of tortillas today, I realized that that's all he'll need. There are about ten more work days until he's gone.

Boy, that hit me like a ton of bricks. It snuck up on me fast. The shampoo realization came four months ahead of time. This time I've been a lot more distracted.

Mine was red bull. He lives on the crap I cant stand it. I bought a big pack and only once I got it home and in the fridge did I realize that a lot of it was going to be sitting around. for a while.

Man! Leave it to tortillas. We're here to listen...or, well, read anyway. {{Hugs}}

ouch, that is coming fast :( I hope you enjoy those last days... somehow my dh and I always manage to fight as if that will make the disengaging easier. I wish some good memories for you both before he goes.
