Day Three Hundred Seventeen.
Ahh lazy Sunday! I spent the day reading the paper, catching up on my shows, doing chores, spoiling Emmie with a Petco trip and a phone call with Jason. After dinner I went with Kristene for a long walk on post. We walked three miles with the kids and Emmie just talking about the deployment and our plans for the future. It was completely relaxing and just what I needed to keep my mind off of tomorrow and the million things consuming it. As the torch party makes its way home this week the time left of this deployment is nearing the end. I am just all kinds of excited to know when I pick Jason up I will be picking him up for 3.5 years haha. Of course I will have to spend seven weeks in the spring without him when he goes back to school, but I am just so ready to start a new adventure with him on the east coast and see his smiling face each morning knowing that night he will be coming back home to me. I am just ready for the future and what it holds. The end of this deployment is going to close another chapter in my life where we begin to write a new one and I cant wait to see what fills its pages!
