We're Back

So I went up to Columbus, MS for the weekend to visit Brent. I didn't get off work as earlier as I would have hoped so I didn't get there until about 10:30. The Motel 6 was totally nasty, but its one of the only 2 places in town that accepted dogs.

Brent greeted me at the door with champagne which was incredibly sweet. I had a drink then totally passed out. Saturday we took the boys on a long walk on base and then I took a shower at this on-base motel, because I wouldn't shower in the horrible bathroom at that motel. Saturday night we when to the "mall" I bought a new book and then we went to dinner at a Italian restaurant/martini bar. Overall it was ok, but my a side of my chicken Marsala was totally salty.

This morning we woke up early, walked the dogs, watched a couple episodes of Ice Road Truckers, and then had a big breakfast at Ryan's across the parking lot from Motel 6.

Then the boys and I headed home. It was great to see Brent. I miss him so much. I'm getting somewhat used to coming home every day after work and him not being at home. And, I'm getting used to sleeping by myself again. But, now I just really wish he was here to comfort me.

Good News! I'll be heading home to So. Illinois the weekend of Sept 20th. We were suppose to go to Indy to Brent's friend wedding, but it looks like he isn't going to get leave so I'm heading home instead. I took the 19th off of work, but when I went into talk to my boss about leave, I broke down and started crying about my mom. Uggg.... He was very supportive but I hated to have him see me like that.
