My husband has moved on, from where he was to where he will be. He is still In Country, but he is making progress towards home.

I keep finding myself doing the opposite of what I did with the tortillas earlier this year: every time I hear a deadline, I rejoice that it's after my husband's return. My husband gets home before our milk expires. He gets home before the movie I rented is due. He gets home soon.

God willing and the Creek don't rise, as they say around here.

(And in answer to the couple of questions I've gotten about what actually constitutes a "single digit midget': less than 10 days.)

When I was in the Air Force, we always said "You're not short 'til you're next." Sounds like your husbands "Next". This is me smiling for you too.

Although this is something I will never experience, so I will never know first hand what you go through while your husband is gone, I am just so very very excited for you!

I'm WAY excited for you, friend! It's hard to believe, but next year this time, I'll only be about 1/2 way done. UGH!

Hell, Guard Wife, this time next year I will be waiting for my husband to come home again! We can wait together...
