The Time Has Come

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."

--Lewis Carroll

Or we could talk about deployments.

Saying goodbye for a year....again.

Watching your Soldier say goodbye to the kids.

Knowing how much they will miss, no matter how much you try to fill them in on everything.

Taking out the trash for a year, a task I hate.

Coordinating activities, bath time, bedtimes, for three energetic children.

But I think for now I will just focus on getting this place unpacked, before I lose my mind!

I HATE taking out the trash with a passion. C only has two chores at home...taking out the trash and scooping the litter box. When he was deployed, instead of counting down the days until he got home, I counted the number of times I had left to take out the trash.

He's currently visiting his mother in AL...when he booked tickets I was relieved he would be back in time for trash day!

Last time you counted trash days, ABW. What are you counting this time?

I'm so sorry K. Even being a deployment veteran doesn't make it easier.
