We all miss Daddy…

and he has only been gone for 36 hours! 

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.
