And of course as he was leaving something happened that I'll have to deal with on my own. That's always the way it works.
When he was in Iraq our condo in Phoenix flooded (I was gone to Idaho). So while he sat there all cozy in the desert, I had to remodel our condo.
This time it's a tree in our back yard blown over last night in a storm. ::sigh::
But that's okay. It's the sort of thing us soldier's wives have to deal with in order to see our men in uniforms. Which is a definite perk.
Abigail Adams once said "I would not only have submitted to the absence I have endured, painful as it has been; but would not have opposed it, even tho 3 years more should be added to the Number... I feel a pleasure in being able to sacrifice my selfish passions to the general good."
I couldn't have said it better myself.
Besides, I have a list of chick flicks I want to watch and now is the perfect time to work my way through them.
