I am finally starting to get excited.  My DH is scheduled to come home the end of this month.  WOW, I can't believe that I can actually say that.  No, it's not for good.  It is just for one of his R&R visits.  But right now, I will take anything.  He will be home for 16 days.  Right now, we don't have anything planned.  For those of you that don't know, he has been gone since Jan 3rd.  And before that, he was home for 30 days.  So basically since we have moved to Florida in October, I have only seen my DH 30 days.  That really sucks!!!  This is our first deployment & the first time we have ever been away from each other for this long.  But with him being gone, it has made our relationship that much stronger.  We have to really concentrate on communicating.  Don't get me wrong, there are times that it's hard but you have that in any relationships.

Anyways, I got off of the subject.  He already has his reservation for his rental car.  You see he has to fly into Jacksonville & then drive to our town, which is another 6 hr drive.  But I am sure he will make it in less time. 

Not only do I have to look forward to that this month but my baby girl, Jessica, will be going to VP-K starting June 11th.  Man, I remember when she was born.  Where did the time go?  I am really excited for her because she hasn't been in daycare for almost 18 months.  And I know that she will have a blast being with other kids her own age but at the same time, it means that my baby is growing up.  My house will be so quiet because she talks non stop from the time she wakes up until she goes to bed.  She is also one of those kids that asks a thousand questions.  So it will be an adjustment for all of us.

Thanks for letting me vent.
