One Hundredth Post

Wow! It's pretty incredible. I have been at this for a year and I have finally made it to one hundred posts.

It's nice to have met all of you and thank you for visiting.

I forgot to share this picture of me pinning my LT during Airborne graduation!

Deployment comes again to our family. This time his boots will be in real combat zone. It will luckily not be another year, but this means separation again. I received a book from the FRG leader titled, "Surviving Deployment, A guide for military families, by Karen M. Pavlicin." It provides information critical to facing a deployment and is written by one of us MilSpouses. I encourage anyone facing similar situations to look into reading it or keeping it for references and tips.

I suppose, this means I will have some lists going for activities I will be working on during his time overseas. A couple things come to mind:

1. Read. I have so many books I want to read. The Dragon Tattoo series. I need to finish my book about Susan G. Komen. I would like to read Obama Wars and check out the book Happy Life as an Army Wife suggested While They Are At War. I am sure I can complete these before Spring.

2. ORGANIZE! Pictures, Recipes, Craft Room, etc. Since living this army life, my things have not been tended to like I normally like. 

3. Exercise. LT and I have a saying, E. S. P. Emotional, Spiritual and Physical. It's actually on our wedding bands. We both want to make sure we stay true to these three things when we are separate. 

What are some things you do while your husband is deployed? Any survival tips? I was thinking about making a page on the blog from all of you strong, experienced, milspouses/finaces/girlfriends, that have tips. It might be a good resource for people looking.... Let me know what you think.
