So Hard to Say Goodbye!

I, like most people, hate saying goodbyes.  Today was no difference.  Today was the day that I had dread for the past 11 days. 
Me and my husband normally only get two days/nights together.  J gets in on Fridays (normally late) and leaves around 6 on Sundays.  About 48 hours is all we get at one time.  While it isn't ideal, it is what we have to do right now since I am still in school and he is in the military.  In the beginning, it was always hard to say goodbye to him.  I always cried and would remain in tears for hours after.  As time has pasted, it hasn't gotten any easier to say goodbye, but it has become part of our routine.  He leaves on Sunday and comes back down on Friday.  Week after week, this is how our lives function now days.  I'm not going to say I don't have weekends when I cry and where I get down about it, but over the past year, I have learned to deal with it.
Today, however, was completely different.  J and I had spent the past 11 days together.  11 days.  We haven't had this much time together at one period since we got married.  It was absolutely wonderful!!  I couldn't have asked for a better time!  It was so nice to get to spend time in our apartment together and go to bed at 9:00 and watch tv.  But today, reality hit.  This had to come to an end and today J had to go back to base.  All day, I was in tears.  We decided we would just have a lazy day, and spend most of the time curled up watching basketball and movies.  And then the dreaded time came.  He had to leave.  As much as I don't like it, it had to happen.  So reality has officially set back in.  J has left and I am getting ready to go back to class tomorrow.  I had a hard time today, and to make it even worse, J is going on a training thing and won't be back in until April 1st.  Oh, better pass quickly. 

Why do goodbyes always have to be so hard?

This past week was the first one in which my husband I have been together for an extended period of time in our new apartment together.  We get the weekends, but this time we had a whole 11 days!  While we were together, he pointed out that I have a very bad obsession....TV...
I love TV and it gives me something to do at night while I am waiting to talk to him, or by myself on a quiet night.
But I must say, I do have over half the week in which I have nightly TV shows


(If you haven't heard/seen this show, you definitely need to!  It premiered this past Sunday so hubs and I got to watch it together and WOW!!  I cried for the entire hour!  Hubby might have shed a tear or two as well!!  Great!)


I have to admit, this is the first season I have watched this show, but I knew Emily's story coming in and had to watch it!!  I am cheering for her to get the final rose :)



So, maybe he is right.  It is a lot of TV shows, but several of these I watch online when I have free time.  Besides, everyone has to have plenty of ways to procrastinate , right?! ha
What are some of your favorite TV shows?

Spring Break 2011

Well, as sad as it is...spring break 2011 is almost in the books. 

While I didn't spend this one on a beach, or in Vegas, or anything like that, I got to spend it with this guy:

It was so wonderful to have some time together without work or school in the way!  It was also a great time to get lots of stuff ready for the little man who is scheduled to make his arrival in about 10 or so short weeks.  So carzy how quickly time is going by now days!
We have officially registered for E and bought and put together his crib and changing table!  Cannot believe that he is almost here!
The next couple weeks are going to prove to be busy, but so much fun!!  I have a couple baby showers coming up, so I can't wait to see what all little E gets!! 
Luckily, it has stopped rainning here, so I think the hubby and I are looking forward to going for some runs in our last couple days together.  Gotta keep off the extra weight (from all the sweets I am consuming these days!)
Have a good weekend :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

February 14th.  I have to say, I am not a HUGE fan of this day.  While I enjoy all the candy, all the other festivities are take it or leave it for me.  And this year was no exception. 

Last year was WONDERFUL.  J and I got to spend the entire weekend together :)  What more could I ask for?! 

But this year, Valentine's came on a Monday...a workday...
And J had duty this weekend, so he didn't get to come in either.  So needless to say, this Valentine's Day isn't one of my favorites. 

But I can't have a LOVE holiday go by, and not do anything for my love. 

So, J, I love you more than you will ever know!  I can't wait for all the Valentine Days that we get to spend together in the future! 

I wouldn't trade my Valentine for anything!!  And next year, I can't wait to celebrate with BOTH of my boys!
