I Was Doing Fine Until......But I'm Fine Now!

As you all should know (my faithful little followers :) hubby deployed a few days ago for the sandbox and what do you know...I of all people am completely doing fine or I was until....

So I'm at my kids school chatting it up with one of the other wonderful ladies whose husband deployed recently also. All of a sudden the sweetest little boy comes up to the mom I am talking to and says Hi Mrs E (we will just call her Mrs. E for now) my mom cried all night becauseeee she is sad that my daddy left. Oh wow can you say my heart crumbled for not only that little boy , but his mother as well. The thing that really made me tear up was that this little boy who was no more then seven was so genuinely concerned for his mom.

The final straw that broke my day was... I'm heading to ACS( Army Community Services)to pick up my Blue Star Card (card which is used for discounts during deployments). I get my card and as I am coming out the building what do I hear but the Schofield Army Band playing music for soldiers who were coming home. Ahhhh can you imagine the feeling. I am not an evil person and of course those spouses greatly deserved that joyous day, but I couldn't help feel just a tad bit envious that a chapter was ending for them while mine was just beginning.

I fretted for a while until my day was completely made by seeing that wonderful odd looking calling card number that always showed up on my phone last deployment. The minute I saw the area code 199,I knew automatically it was my husband calling to tell me he had safely arrived at their destination.

What a great way to end what could have potentially been a craptacular day.

Until Then
Hooah & Smooches


  1. I have those little moments that just make you tear up.... and then the smallest thing makes it all feel right again!!!!

  2. You are preparing me for that day. DH has never been deployed since he has been in, over 12 years. Thanks for the video. Always laugh to make your heart stronger

  3. I know what you mean when I have people over that may answer the phone i tell them to make sure they get it if it has a weird code on it and not a phone number. I think they may asume it is a telemarketer otherwise. bw i liek your lay out..i tried to figure out how to make one and hae had no luck yet. maybe one of these days when i have nothing better to do. not goign to be any day soon with all the moving. lol

  4. Hey girl I'm here for you. We are going through the samething. If you ever need anything call me or comeover or i can walk over to your house.

  5. Just found your blog and I loved reading it:)

  6. I agree April.

    Buntyn I am glad that my videos and text blogs are able to help someone. Yes laughter is good for the heart and soul.

    Raising Soul lol @ the telemarketer things ...I hate that I am forced to answer their calls now in fear it might be husband calling and I'd hate to miss his calls.

  7. OMG Krystel I am so happy you said that about being a little envious bc I was too. As I dropped my husband off, there were re-deployment ceremonies going on right around the corner.

  8. LOL Yes Lita we were in the same exact boat...Good thing to know their is always someone out there who feels just as you do.

  9. wow, yes, I remember that also, it is tough that you're so happy for them in their waiting period being over, but how rough! I'm so glad to hear he called, that always brings your heart to rest! hugs to you, you're doing awesome!! looks like you have 4 months down? great stuff, luv Jenn
