Brian left for an overseas training very early yesterday morning, but we all miss him already. This morning the kids were asking me “is Daddy back from ______?” Sadly enough I had to explain that it will still be a few weeks unitl he returns. I did add in the good news that Aunt Tonya is coming in a week, then Nana will be here shortly after that.
Then this afternoon as I was making lunch I had the kitchen window open to let the wonderful Washington afternoon fresh air in. I heard a small motorcycle slowly drive by and immediately I looked up to see if it were Brian. I quickly realized my mistake, and though a little sadder, finished up the kids luncch. Even though I “drive on” and have learned to deal with the physical seperations that the military lifestyle brings on, I still miss my dear sweet husband a lot. I will put on that “I have it all together mask” and all, but seriously, feel free to come over and hang out, remind me to get out. I love having friends around to do stuff with and get through this time. I might seem ok, but I do miss Brian just as much (if not more than) as the kids.
