Lessons from Deployment

Lesson Learned #1: after your boyfriend deploys and you think you're out of the things only you eat (i.e. coffee creamer), it's a good idea to check the refrigerator before going to the grocery store. He does a good job of taking care of you. Otherwise you're going to end up with a bunch of coffee creamer.

Lesson Learned #2: It's really great that all of said boyfriend's things are now here in our apartment and not scattered between here and the barracks. Moving this stuff here right before the deployment was a necessary evil, and having him put things away and clean may have been convenient while I was working 10 hours a day, but now I cant find anything! Where is the cord for my camera???!?

Lesson Learned #3: People may not call you more often than once or twice a year. Until your boyfriend has deployed and you are waiting for the "I'm okay" phone call. Then everyone you know will call you (despite the fact that they have no idea) what a bad time it is... ugh. My mom called after I was asleep- I really thought that one was him, because who else would call when they know I'm in bed? What a let down.

Seriously, I have no idea where the cord is, and its driving me nuts. I was going to post a picture of Webster helping my write my paper yesterday, but I can't figure out how to get my pictures into my computer without that dang cord... I'll keep looking.

In the meantime, I'm relaxing, baking, finishing up the last tiny little bit of schoolwork I have for the weekend and snuggling with my cat. Oh, and waiting by the phone for an 'I'm okay' phone call. That would be nice.
