Day 3.

I'm being called "crazy" - but, documenting each day of deployment is important to me. So, I'll continue to do it and I hope you'll continue to read.

Today is September 10th, 2010. The eve of the worst terror attack on American soil. How were we to know that, in the morning of September 11, 2001, the face of America would change?

Tonight, I got to talk to Adam. They're still traveling to their destination. It was the 1st time I've been able to talk to him since he left. I was on cloud nine for a few hours. Now, I'm back to missing him. But, it's ok. I'm fully trusting that God will keep him safe.

I'm pretty thankful I have this new TV in my room. It really makes my nights go a little faster. I can get in bed, do some homework, and then watch some was a smart move.

I'm sorry, I don't know what else to write tonight. I'm still on an emotional roller coaster and I cry on the drop of a dime (when Noah's not looking). But that will pass...I'll find a routine...before I know it, he'll be home.

Lord, please keep my husband and his unit safe and out of harms way.


  1. You are not crazy! I think that's a great idea to document and post each day of deployment. It's something to help keep you strong and put things in perspective...and just vent sometimes, if you need to! God bless you and your husband and your little boy. Thank you for your sacrifice! I'm an Army girlfriend, about your same age (I'll be 24 in a couple months), and someday I'll be an Army wife as well! Mark will be deployed next year, possibly to Afghanistan too. He's a Field Artillery officer, and he said if given the option, he'll choose to be on the front lines. We're gonna wait to get married till after deployment I won't be exactly in your position, but close. I love reading about the experiences of Army wives, and I'll be drawing strength from your deployment posts...cuz someday I'll be there, too. I think I might do the one post each day of deployment thing, too! Writing helps me organize my thoughts and feelings better. Please feel free to visit my blog, I've written some things on the Army life. I'm so glad to be part of this Army girlfriend/fiance/wife sisterhood! :)

  2. I'm really glad you enjoy reading. It warms my heart to know that people do read...because no one ever comments haha. But that's ok, I love writing and it really does help me right now.
    Good luck on the coming deployment of your boyfriend. Thank you and him for your sacrifice. It's not an easy feat...that's for sure.
