I'm Ready

I've tried very hard not to complain or whine throughout this deployment. I believe that it won't make it any easier, sure won't help the time go by, and ultimately what's it going to accomplish? Nothing but annoyances of those who do read here and one day when I look back I'd be rolling my eyes at myself.

Well, Chad's now safe and sound in Kuwait. He has a lot of things to do to get the rest of the Batallion there to join him and his 5 soldiers. He's stressed and I'm just ready. I am ready for this deployment to be over. I'm ready for my husband to be home and in my arms. I'm ready to be held at night by arms that know how to hold me. I'm ready to be kissed, really kissed. (I do love kisses from a certain 5 and 3 yr old little boys, but well not the same!). I want to be able to roll over in bed and nudge my husband because he's snoring too loud. I look forward to when I get some odd craving once a month being able to just walk over to the shoppette if I want and know that he's home with the boys.  I look forward to going on walks with him, holding my hand, while the boys run in front of us.

I'm ready for my husband to be home. I'm ready to be able to breath easily once more, at least for a little while. I'm ready for family vacations and road trips.

The last couple hours the blahs have taken over me. I just really, really miss Chad and can't wait for him to be home.

Understandable.  You're entitled to whine every now and then.  =)

I can only imagine that you are so ready to see him home!  I was thinking of you today when I heard some one say they were from Kansas City and someone else asked MO or KS?  When is he supposed to come home?  Soon I hope.

You know I am here for you....if you ever see me on, just IM me. Your patience has been steadfast this entire depolyment and I am sure it's okay to not be so patient right now. You will not have to be w/o Chad for too much longer. Hang in there friend!!

Have you made the welcome home signs yet? I can't wait to see them. Heck, I wish we were there to be able to take pics for you guys!

In love, friendship and support,

Todd and Cindy

It won't be long now Christy!  You have been amazing for the last year, you have the right to whine just a little!  Linda

This is a tough journey - And to do it without complaining/whinning would be a very difficult task. Not knowing you, other than by reading your journal,  I would say you have the strenght and the will it takes to bring him home safe and sound - God bless you for that strenght and GOD BLESS your husband for his commitment and fight. I thank you both and wish you lots of hugs, cuddles and kisses from the ones you love the most. Gods blessings to you always, Katie
