A day in my life

Tuesday, November 4, 2008 |
I did not have school today because my school is a voting sight.
I had my entire day planned out around voting.
My husband decided he would go first thing before he left for work ~ good thinking!
I had him call me to let me know how long of a wait was ahead of me. They were projecting a 2 hour wait in line. I was prepared ~ magazines were at the ready!
The call came ~ if you leave now, it will only take 10 minutes. Out the door I ran, and was johnny on the spot. It took longer to park than to vote!
I made "the right choice"
(this is a giggle to friends and family as I am always using this phrase!)
then treated myself to a trip to the commissary, jewelers, bank, tailors, and finally, lunch with my husband. This was a very special treat since we almost never have the opportunity to go out to lunch together.
It was at lunch that he broke the news ........ I have to go out to sea next week.
Me: What? I thought you said we were good until after the holidays?
Him:Well, I thought so but something came up.
Me:Your right, something is coming up. My birthday! You said you'd be home this year.
Him: Sorry, I promise to make it up to you.
Me:Hmmm, I think I've heard this line before ~ as in the past 3 birthdays.
I know, it's only a birthday,
but I was really looking forward to going out to dinner with him next week. He missed my big birthday last year.
Sometimes I envy the 2 year old who gets to have a temper tantrum and no one judges them. This is just a poopy moment and I will get over it. There are just times that I get tired of his travel and envy those that have their husbands home for the little things in life.
Oh well, I can always hope for next year!

I completely relate. My husband is not in the military but he travels...a lot! He has been out of town so much in the last year. Me and my two little ones miss him so much. It is hard.

Oh boy. My sister can totally relate. Her hubby has been out to sea on her birthday for the past 3 years. He'll be home this year...fingers crossed!

I'm heading down to the base tomorrow to catch a movie with my sister. The Richard Gere/Diane Lane film...what's it called? Yikes! I can't even remember!!
