Anyone else get that feeling when there is less than a month of deployment left? I don’t know if I am alone in this or not. I hear so many people say that the last month of deployment drags but I beg to differ. This last month has been flying by SO fast that I feel like I blink and it’s the next day. I suppose that could have to do with how much I am working and hanging out with friends. I have been busy, busy, and busy. So busy that I haven’t given myself time at home to finish the things I want to finish before my husband gets home. Everything *HAS* to be perfect. Not because he wants it to be, but because I want it to be. Not that he will even notice, ha, ha. I want him to open the door to the spare bedroom and not recognize it. Before he left, it was full of boxes that we didn’t get the chance to unpack. Nothing in that room was in order. Now, the bed is made complete with bed skirt and everything. Those boxes are either unpacked or hidden in the closet because I don’t have the first clue as to what to do with their contents.
Before he left, our dining room table (we got for free) had no chairs. Now, a good friend is letting us use her set (since she doesn’t have space for it) until we get our chairs. Before he left, the walls were bare. I’m talking nothing but paint. Now there are pictures and a painting on the walls. There is still more work to be done on the walls but it is coming along wonderfully. Before he left, the only seating we had in the living room was our couch. Now, we also have a lovely chair that I found at a great price and couldn’t resist! Finally, before he left, we had a very manly comforter set on our bed in multiple shade of blue. The sheets were blue and so were the pillow cases. Now, that set is on the bed in the spare room and we have a lovely light sea foam green floral set that is very gender friendly, though I firmly believe that no man would pick it out if he was a bachelor.
Putting all of that out there makes me feel like I shouldn’t have anything left to do but watch the time pass by, but I still feel like there is so much to get done and not enough time in the day to get it done! Maybe it’s all a part of the homecoming jitters? In not too much longer I will know for sure! Until then, time, please be on my side!
