the hardest part


The hardest part of a deployment for me is the lonely nights. Right now it is 9:21 on Thursday night. If Ben were here, this would be the time for talking, eating snacks we don't want to share with the kids, cuddling, and just being together. But here I sit. All alone. Nothing to keep me company but my laptop. I am seriously missing him tonight. Unfortunatley, I haven't been able to talk to him for 2 days. I know, I know it doesn't seem like that long. But it feels long.

Only 21 more days to go...

I know that feeling, Bryce travels a lot and nights are my least fav. I was laughing about sneaking treats, we do that too!!
