I can't believe that this month has flown by. I have truly enjoyed my month here in Texas. I think that when I decided to come to Texas while Mat went to Croatia, I made a great decision. It's been so awesome having my family around to help take care of Jaxon and Hayley who are slowly coming into their terrible 2's.
I am sad to leave but I am so ready to get home to Mat. This month has been harder on us than the past 2 deployments and any field problem. I think that it's because I am in Texas, away from our home, our stuff, us. We had a long conversation last night and I think that this trip actually has helped our marriage. We weren't having problems, every marriage has issues that aren't marriage breaking but could be improved (talking in the bedroom, communicating about things other than the kids, etc.) and after last night, I think that we may be on the right track to fix those issues. I'm excited.
I told him that I could go a whole 12 year deployment and just miss him but this month is killing me. And again, I blame it on the fact that we aren't home.
Anywho, I leave tomorrow and will be back in Germany on Saturday. I hope to update on our entire trip this next week but the twins and I have appointments every day this next week plus jet lag. The twins adjusted to Germany time pretty good after last year's trip and I can't remember how I did but I survived. My main concern is how Zaria and Dameon will adjust to the time change. I actually go to Austin tonight to pick them up!
I guess I should finish getting ready to go to Austin and finish throwing my suitcases together! See ya across the ocean!
