We're nearly at the end of Day 6.
I've come to a few conclusions in the last six days.
Wanna know 'em?
There are 24 hours in the day but when you're gone, it feels like 57.
I work Monday through Thursday and when you're here, that sucks but when you're gone, it feels like its not enough. I would flat out lose my sanity if I didn't have somewhere I HAD to be Monday through Thursday.
Getting emails late on Saturday nights from Mormon strangers are quite possibly the best thing in the world.
It's a good thing you have 3 sisters who not only enjoy things like Les Miserable but that they'll come over on a Saturday night to watch it and end up singing all the songs and crying with me.
Having my nightmares and horribly disturbing dreams are never fun. In fact, they always suck and leave me feeling scared and angry but babe, when you're not here, they are pure hell.
Deployment Brain is not only very real but it is misnamed. It doesn't just happen during deployments but it pokes its nasty, unwelcome, life-disrupting head up whenever you're gone.
When I came home from work, I immediately did the dishes, switched out laundry, put some food in the fridge, and then worked out. Afterwards, I went to take my daily post-workout picture and couldn't find my phone. Now, I know what you're thinking. "Par for the course! Big shocker! Geez honey, really?!"
Well, just hear me out!
I remembered bringing it in from the car.
But that was it.
I searched the normal spots. You know, the bed, counter, purse, couch...
I then texted Sammy telling her to call my phone. I know, how did I text right? The iPad, duh. She tried over and over but it kept going straight to voicemail. I knew it had a nearly full battery and yet, nothing.
I started to REALLY freak out. Panicked, crying, frantically searching everywhere and hyperventilating.
I searched all the cupboards and drawers, the bed, both bathrooms, the couch, under all the furniture, and pretty much everywhere else about a bajillion times before looking in the.... Fridge.
It was in the fridge.
I about died from laughing and chagrin.
Now please, come home soon.
