WeIrD

It hit me today that I have felt unsettled the past few days. I couldn't figure out why. I realized today that I don't know what to do when we aren't preparing for deployment. Seriously, the past 5 years of our life has been all about deployment! We have known that when one deployment ends, another is already on the horizon. But this time, we are going to a place where Kevin won't deploy for 2 years. It's an odd feeling. We are preparing to move later this fall (we have a few months but we have learned that time flies much faster then you anticipate so we start prepping early). Could it be true, our life will be one where we actually spend time together, in one room, all on one couch for two WHOLE years. I am afraid to hope that it's true but I get warm fuzzies thinking about it.

Enjoy those 2 years! That will be great! I am sure I will be feeling like you in the future. Aaron is pretty sure he is not going to re enlist. We have been together 7 years, and have never known a time in our together life without deployments. I am sure it will be weird.

Oh my goodness. I have actually heard of this, sometimes living normally, after living in chaos, can create anxiety! I can totally see how that would happen. Here's to you being able to enjoy the precious time with your family!!
