So December was a very stressful month if you didn't get that from my first three parts. And then there was Christmas too.
The holidays were good considering my husband wasn't here. We did get to Skype with him Christmas morning so he got to see the kids open all their gifts. And then him and I were able to open gifts together like we do every year as the kids sit around and play with new toys.
Oddly enough though, Christmas wasn't as depressing as Thanksgiving was for me.
What made it bearable though was this:
Yup, you guessed it! R&R. Three days after Christmas my hubby returned home for his two week R&R.
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.
