Deployment Diaries #10

Over the past week, two separate people have apologized to me for complaining about being apart from their significant other.

And that makes me sad. Because missing someone, is missing someone. It doesn’t matter if you’re apart for 6 days, or 6 months. When you’re used to sharing your life with someone, it’s hard when suddenly they aren’t there anymore. When Graham would leave for trips to fix those stupid planes, or when he went to Germany last year for two weeks, I missed him just as much then as I do now.

2015-07-08 09.38.24In other news, we’re about to hit a very significant milestone – the 50% mark! I can’t believe we’re almost halfway done with this! The summer has been flying by! I don’t think I’ve ever been as busy, or as social, as I’ve been this summer. I’ve had house guests the past two weekends, and I’ll have one more before July is over, I’ve been spending lots of time with my friends here, and I’m even considering a weekend beach trip with my mom & a friend later this summer.

Even though time is flying by & I’m staying busy, I’ve missed G a LOT these past few weeks. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that a friend’s  husband is coming back from his deployment very soon. I’m a little jealous, and it has me feeling very impatient. Also, Hermione was sick on Sunday night. She threw up seven times, after we got back from our walk, & just looked so pathetic. When our furry ones aren’t feeling well, I not only miss G, but I need him. A fear of mine is that something will happen to one of them while he’s gone, and I’ll have to make terrifying decisions about them on my own.Fingers crossed that I’ll never have to deal with that…

Anyways. I’ve had fun with my guests the past two weekends, but I’m really looking forward to a semi-solitary weekend. Lots of pool time. time with my book, trying out some new recipes, and seriously cleaning the apartment. It’s clean before my guests come, a disaster once they’ve left, and then I build on the disaster all week until the weekend. Right now, my kitchen is clean, because I can’t stand a messy kitchen, but the rest of the apartment… good Lord… Happy weekend to me 😉
