Wishes I Could Sleep for 6 Months

(Waiting at the gate for his flight. ~ I look pretty horrible, but oh well. His flight was supposed to be at 6am, so we had gotten 3.5-4 hours of sleep and it was freezing so I didn't wear the dress I wanted to wear!)

I just got back home after driving for 12 hours. I unfortunately had to complete this drive after taking A to the airport so he can head back to Iraq. Yes, that's right...R & R is over! STINKY!

Now with having a 12 hour drive after this, I had A LOT of time to think. (Now please don't get offended by the way this might sound or whatever, especially since I'm working on 3.5 hours of sleep!) I feel as though I just "returned" A to the United States Army. They basically own him (definitely for the length of the deployment) and I got to borrow him for 15 days. However, I have to return him after that time is up. But, what if I don't want to return him? I don't usually return clothes, etc. that I want to have. I only return if I don't want an item for some reason. So, since I want him here with me right now, can't I just keep him?!?!

I know this was probably a ridiculous analogy, but it's what I got to thinking while I tried to stay awake and get home. So, now that I got home, I am off to bed with my puppy (instead of A) by my side! Missing him like crazy already. Can't believe it will be an other X (wish I knew for sure the number) months before I can hold his hand and kiss him.


  1. Don't you wish the army was a person sometimes, so you could smack them upside the head?!

  2. Girl I was just thinking about you and wondering how R & R was going. I'm glad you had a good R & R with A :)

  3. Glad that R&R went so well!! I hope that X turns into a very small number and A is home with you soon!

  4. Just think, the last half of deployment, usually the last 6 months always goes by faster then the first. (Or that is what it has just seemed for me on our other 3 deployments :) )


  5. btw, you live 12 hours from the airport?

  6. Urgh this part sucks but Im here for you huni xoxo

  7. What a bummer! I hope the months pass quickly for you.

  8. I totally know what you mean. I feel the Marines pretty much owns my fiancee too. I hate having to give him up! Hopefully the last half of the deployment will go by much faster than the first! I'm really happy though you enjoyed your R&R! If you ever need somethin' let me know. =)
