It creeps up on you sometimes...

I like to say I'm a pretty strong brawd. I can deal with alot and you'll never see me sweat. So far during this deployment I've taken some pretty strong hits and stood my ground.

I haven't broken down and cried very much and think that's a pretty big accomplishment. But I'm not too proud to admit that I randomly cry while I'm driving. I don't cry at the thought of him being gone but I cry at the thought of him coming home...is that weird? I start daydreaming about his homecoming and the tears start to flow. I allow myself to fantasize about what its going to be like to see him and running to him. I start thinking about what it will feel like to be in his arms again and feel his kiss on my forehead... and I lose it.

You know what else gets me going...music and this particular song.




I seriously felt like this song was written just for us...songs do that for all of us right? Mr. Jetplane tells me I'm crazy all the time so its only fitting.


On top of that we often say to each other "I miss you like a crazy person" or "I love you like a crazy person". I know it might not make sense to you, but it means something to us. We're both kinda weird and thankfully we found each other, no one else might be able to deal with us :)

But the good news is there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Our homecoming briefing is scheduled for next month...hot damn that excites me to no end. Can't wait to have my man back where he belongs... Mr got delayed getting into country, so I'm pretty sure he'll be one of the last guys back. Sadly I might have to attend 3 or 4 homecomings before I get to enjoy my own. Such is the life...

Do you EVER write about anything else? This blog USED to be interesting!

First of all, anonymous, how about a big, fat THANK YOU for the sacrifices her and her husband are making so that you have the freedome to sit on your computer and judge people? Unbelievable.

Second, I love this post. I can't imagine the waiting and I totally understand why the thought of seeing him makes you cry more than him being gone. I hope this time flies for you.

Yay for deployment almost being over! :)

Yay for a light at the end of the tunnel!! Even crazy people need love right?! :)

Wow, really anonymous? Let's see you get through a deployment? Goodness gracious, I wish you shared your name with everyone. Way to hide behind the Internet.

Anyway...I totally get songs being the tipping point for crying. During my husband's deployment it was Lady antebellum that made me cry at the drop of a hat.

So excited that it's getting closer :)

I can't begin to imagine what you are going through with deployment, but you show such bravery. So admirable. And only a short time left!

Also? Anonymous sucks. Grow balls and list yourself. Or? Just don't read!

I'm so glad you do share this and you can count on most of us to be supportive. :) So glad that you are towards the end, it has been a journey to see you grow through his deployment and I can't wait to see you two reunited! :)

I'm so glad that you are nearing the finish line! This post is so sweet and I am truly thankful to you both! Anonymous doesn't know what she is talking about, I read blogs because I want to know what other's lives are like. Your's is one I enjoy the most because it is so different from my own.

You have my support, take care and know God is with you and your family

Homecomings are the best! I can totally relate the tears when thinking about seeing him again for the first time, first kiss, hug, etc. I know I cried a bunch in the days leading up to Chris's return. The ladies at Delta must have thought I was crazy for crying when I received my gate pass :)

Now onto anonymous. You really should be ashamed of yourself. Are you married? If so, can you imagine being away from your spouse for several months???? Knowing your spouse is in a freaking war zone???? Constantly wondering if they are ok???? Deployments occupy your mind 24/ 7 so it's only natural for Mrs Jetplane to vent about it. Try to show a little respect and support and be less of a jerk? Ok?
