i miss him so.

the reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected.- nicholas sparks

i truly believe that steve and i were meant to be.  while we are quite the opposites in some departments, he complements me and completes me. he makes me a better person. he makes my life complete. and as i often share, he's just an amazing person and the most wonderful daddy.  pretty darn handsome too. ;-)

and today, we got to skype with steve. it had been a long time since we last skyped b/c the connection hasn't been so good. it was so wonderful to see him. it was so emotional to see him. i had to fight back the tears quite a few times, especially when i sat back and just watched the kids talk to their daddy.

it's been 4 1/2 months, since steve left, and on march 6th, we'll have *only* two months to go. it's funny when you can say only two months. normally having your husband gone for two months would be a long time, but we're at the point where two months seems rather short and is pretty darn exciting. aye...the things that become normal for us military families.


the above quote is from "the notebook". i watched it last week and sobbed like a baby. i don't think i've ever cried during a movie as much as i did with "the notebook".  of course, being apart from my husband for so long didn't help.  but truly...a wonderful movie. a wonderful love story. if you haven't seen it, rent it! but have many tissues nearby.

now off to mow the lawn and then straighten up the house. the car could use a bath too but that will have to wait for another day. dinner with max's family tonight...i can't wait to see them.
