Tonight this morning...

I don't really have much to say. Today was really productive. I worked 12 hours, ran a mile, did 40 minutes of Just Dance 3, bought produce at the local fruit stand, found a bread outlet about 30 minutes away by the dog food store. Bought dog food, stocked up on bread. Talked with one of My Sailor's sisters. Ate in between all that and now I'm heading off to bed.

In a bit of a vent - Imagine emailing your loved one every day - never knowing when you'll get a reply. It's easy to feel neglected, etc, and it's perfectly natural - even though the lack of response has NOTHING to do with me. Or him for that matter. So I'm not really angry about it - but all these one way conversations have forced me to get creative. Last night I sent him a few song lyrics. I'm sure I'll type up a short story at some point. I'm running out of ways to be funny. Soon I'll be Googling jokes just to keep things lively. I always try to send him a smile, but it does get hard to have one-way conversations. It's like blogging but more intimate.

I got this from an email - those aren't our hands and I claim no rights.

And today - I miss him.

I'm also excited about the 5k coming up. Not scared - just excited. It's a good place to be. I hope that plenty of photos get snapped of my unique santa hat! Hard to take pictures of yourself to share with others afterwards! But I'm hoping my Navy pals don't let me down and SOMEONE shows up with a camera - other than me.

Thanks for all the love and support I've received from this blog and some new online friends. Some days I think it just might be all that keeps me sane. It's easy to go through the motions, but I'm SO impatient for his homecoming, my heart isn't in very much of it.

Maybe I just need a good LONG weekend. :)

  1. Sounds like you had a super productive day - wow!

    Glad that hand is not yours, those fingernails are a little creepy :).

    I know the one way conversations are tough, but you know he's appreciating them...Hang in there.

    You'll do great at your 5K - nerves are normal and will help you come race day. Can't wait to see some pics of that hat :)!
