I did take some pictures of all three of us. I need a remote for my camera! Then I could do more shots together. The self timer is way too difficult to use with a DSLR camera. It's kinda hard to explain. I need a remote.
As far as how I'm doing, I'm fine! I feel a little guilty for feeling so fine. I guess I'm used to this? I don't know. What it really comes down to is that I feel like this isn't really SO bad and that some families have it WAY worse. I mean, 6-7 months is really not that bad compared to 12-18 months. How can I really complain or whine about my husband deploying when there are those that are dealing with far worse? Plus, I feel secure in my marriage enough to handle something like this. It's a fact of military life. I am bummed that Josh isn't going to be able to see Wyatt grow up in the next 6 months. That's a lot of time in a baby's life... but I'm thankful that Wyatt is too young to understand. Secretly, Josh and I get excited about deployments because it means more money. We like saving like psychos and then buying something we need or really want at the end of the 6 months. I mean, BUDGET MANIA kinda saving. It's really fun to see how much I can scrape and scrounge. It becomes an obsession. So, there are some benefits.
Also, I'm going to dedicate the time that Josh is gone to working out and bringing sexy back.
Oh, and I'm making the 4 hour drive back home tomorrow. My cousin's are home and we're having a coming home party. One of them is about to deploy so it's extra special I think. I have to go and support him. I'll be sure to take a trillion pictures.
