That is my main countdown right now. In those three months, three weeks and five days so much has happened and so much has not happened. Katelyn and Brett moved to WA, we got a new puppy, we planted veggies and
flowers, I stopped blogging because I felt like all I wanted to talk about was whiny, the school year ended and summer has started. Life is going on, even if I do not always (or often) jump out into the fray of it, it is still happening. This deployment sucks, there is just something about this one that seems different from the others. None of them have been great or fun, but for some reason this one feels odd. I dunno. But just as life is moving on, this deployment is moving on as well, slowly but surely as we are going on to our fourth month now.
But one thing that is not moving along and is really starting to bug me, is the way my kids have decided to do more selective listening, and totally ignoring the things I tell them to do, that they do not feel like doing. The way they pick and choose what they are or are not going to do or when they feel like getting around to doing something is really starting to irk me. It seems as if my children are going to lose some privileges that could lead to a very boring summer for them. That is one of my things I try not to whine about.
Another is, until your kiddo grows up, gets married and moves away you will just never really know how hard it is to let go. Especially when it makes them sad too.
Ok, so no more whining for a while.
