We are getting closer to the deployment. I am not happy about it as things have changed so much. I am hoping that if he has to go, he leaves on a certain date as that would work best for our family. But when does Army stuff usually line up with that?
On the other hand I am ready to get this thing started. I am ready to be at the place where the months are going by and homecoming is right around the corner. I am read for this deployment to be in our past.
I am planning to focus on a few things while he is gone.
I think I will stay busy with all of those things. I like that I can do a lot of it at home. It will make it easier this summer with three boys. I also want to plan a lot of play-dates and park-dates. I need to find a regular babysitter so I can at least make it to book club once a month. I have a trip planned in July. We will be going to see a friend who is moving away from here soon and I will get to go to the Scentsy Family Reunion. I am not sure I will go home to California. I would like to but at the same time it will cost us a lot of money. I also know that as soon as I book a trip like that I will be worried about the flying part of it the whole time. I don’t need that stress. Plus I am really hoping we can take a long trip to California next summer after Ben gets out of the Army.
Who else is close to another deployment? What will you be focusing on?
