Valentine's a Bust

Do you remember this post: It's a Love/Hate Thing?

Good news... I have kicked the Ben & Jerry's habit after a really, really bad cholesterol test that is oh-so-much better now.

How long was he gone again?

So Valentine's Day #4... no husband.Dear Military,

It is year # 4 and no husband for Valentine's Day -- we had a bonus this past Christmas and New Year's. What's next, our Anniversary?

I think I am officially taking February 14th off of my calendar and will just take what I can get now, m'kay? It would be really thoughtful of you to have him home during the super snowy months to help with this snow shoveling since you decided it would be pretty funny to send two southerners to the Mid-West. You knew we were ignorant when it came to real winters. You have his military history and Texas as his 'home of record'.

And to send him before the holidays? Thanks for that triple-whammy. Do you have any idea how hard it is to pull my 8 year old off the ceiling when he has his birthday, daddy deploying and the holidays within weeks of each other?

Not to mention the fact that since we are in a new house the kids are feeling edgy about this and I have three out of four children in my bed...every...single...night. Thanks for that too. I get to wake up with my daughter's foot between my shoulder blades. That is uber fun, let me tell you.

I am glad I am not a drinking woman. It would get ugly around here.

Enjoy your Valentine,

One Lunatic MommyY'all pray for the crazy woman, okay?

I don't mean to rub it in, but I'm so glad I'm in Northeast Texas. I think I can appreciate the cold weather more now, knowing I don't have to live in all that snow! Read your HOTM article, thanks for sharing.

I'm in the same boat. :( He will proabably not make it home for anniversary either. :( Hugs!

I'm seeing this kind of late (though before Valentine's day). I'm sorry for the difficulties you are going through. I can't even imagine how tough it would be to be in your shoes. (Though honestly, the Valentine part wouldn't phase me because my hubby is decidedly NOT into that romantic holiday stuff! I'm used to it and don't mind, really -- I'm not that into it either.)

I'll be thinking of you and holding you in the Light. (hug)
