99 Bottles of Beer on the wall .....I mean until DH comes home!

I just took the 100 day tag off of our "Countdown until Daddy comes home" wall hanging. I can't believe what an impact it had on me. I have been so BAH HUMBUG this entire holiday season. I still have a week and a half to go. I have always loved Christmas, but it holds nothing for me this year. I just want it to come and go. My daugter turns 4 on Christmas Eve and my son recently turned 7. Where did this year go. I think back on it and it all feels so surreal. Like I watching a movie. I don't know how my life will be when he returns but I hope I can wake up from this way of living. I don't want everything to pass by and not live each day the way I should. I know I have to find away to exist when he is gone. It not going to be the last time I have to endure something like this. I am glad that I can now see a light at the end of this tunnel. Double Digits. He will be here before I know it. I can not wait to have our family back together.

I feel the SAME way. Get this Christmas thing over already, I want my husband home! Who can get excited about Christmas??

I think as hard as it would be to have DH leave just before Christmas, it would have been better. Have them leave in the fall so that everyone's not at the end of their rope come Christmas the next year. I guess it would be just as bad, but then THIS year we could've been looking forward to having them home for the holidays, instead of just using Christmas as another bump in the road to where we REALLY want to be!!
