I was lucky to spend this past weekend with 3 of my girls down at the beach. It was 2 days of sun and sand and plenty of doing nothing. We had Mango-ritas, fresh seafood, Kohr Brothers and Bethany BBQ on Saturday and Sunday We ended our trip with a morning at the outlets, lunch at the Dogfish Head brewpub and then a long, traffic-y drive home last night. Lots of laughs, great story telling and a good chance to get to know things about each other that we don't talk about at school, happy hours or wine nights.
I am ready for deployment to be over. This weekend was a much needed escape but when I sat down last night it all hit me. Reading the posts on Facebook, seeing all the media coverage and being here alone was just too much. I miss Sarge, I want our life together at home again and I want this to be over. I am thankful he is safe so far and know that the end is in sight and maybe that's why I'm so easily upset these days but I can't help it.
Today, back to school in an un-airconditioned building when it's supposed to be 90 out. Yuck.
