2 weeks vs 7 weeks

Today marked the 2 week mark since my husband has actually left the country.

I'm still undecided how I actually want to count down the days though. From the time he left for the mob site or the time he actually left the country?

If I count from the time he reported to the mob site then Sunday had been 7 weeks already!

How does everyone else count down the days?

I've always done it by the deployed out of the country date...last time Kyler & I counted out the days & made a chain like you do when you count down for Christmas...he loved it! Of course it wasn't exact cause dates always change...but that was with a 7 month deployment...I can't imagine cutting 365 papers...I'd have a chain running through my entire house! HAHA...same with you!

I always count it from the time he left for the mob site...since he is not at home.

Hey Amy... I count from the first day of his orders (typically the day they leave for MOB)....that was the beginning of the deployment. I am trying to mark each 25 days by doing something to celebrate. We've just gone through day 50 not long ago and I'm looking for day 75!!

How are you doing?

This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
