We finally got an "official" date. After 4 previous deployments, I know this will change a day or two, but it always makes it a little more real to me.
Of course we are in Texas and Gunner is in Colorado. Our time is limited, but we have a lot of 100% together 24/7 time coming up. (I'm thinking with no showers available for a week of that time, we may not want to be close together!)
Even though I knew it was coming, just seeing the orders, hearing the date, kind of gives me a sick feeling. I knew it was coming, but now I know it is here.
We'll be okay, but don't you have that little "I can't believe this is happening to me again" feeling once they cut orders?
