Impressed With Myself

I'm very impressed with myself. I did some math today. Since Donald and I were married, we have been apart for 25.75 months due to deployments and training. We've been together for only 20.25. Alas, yet another reason to be impressed with myself (the first reason was for the math I willingly did!). The alternative to immense pride is to be a miserable wreck, which I've been fighting against a lot lately!

I honestly don't know how missionary wives in the 18- and 1900's did it. Kissing their husbands goodbye for years at a time without phones, USPS, and the INTERNET?
Can I get an "amen" for the INTERNET?!? I could NOT be an Army wife without it. I'm forever indebted to Al Gore for the sanity it has provided me.


  1. Ha ha ha ha (about the Al Gore comment)! That must be really rough. I cry when I'm away from my man for a weekend, I'm so sorry!

  2. Ditto Mer...especially to the gore comment haha

  3. I am impressed with you too! The math and all. One of the things I have learned living in Hong Kong is my Asian Mantra " It is what it is" and that has been your life and you have done a wonderful job dealing with "it is what it is" and I love you for it.
