It's Been Awhile...

since I've been on here.  My bf comes home from Iraq in either 36 or 44 days (the military with their changing...LOL).  I am moving this weekend into a new three bedroom house and he is planning on living there with me for awhile.  He is trying his best to make sure that he will remain stationed in my town...but we all know how hopes and dreams are constantly controlled by the military.  We have decided that we will wait on marriage for awhile.  We are both older and have been hurt.  We want to make sure that we can both handle the military lifestyle together before we take that step.  But for now, I am perfectly content with the idea of coming home to our house everyday and he will be there.  I have been without him since May 2009.  I am ready for him to be with me once again.  We have so many plans but the first thing I am looking forward to is real pillow talk.  I'm so sick of skype, messenger and phone calls.  I cannot wait to be able to touch him and actually feel his warmth.  I am so ready to not have to worry about mortar fire or elections gone awry and only worry about what to make for dinner and who will take the dog out.  I am so ready for him to be home with me.  I have never been more ready for anything in my life.  For those of you that are just starting this journey, it is a long one but you will learn so much about yourself.  You will grow so much with not only your significant other but you will grow with your family and friends.  And you can make it through.  You may have a few bumps and bruises but once the light at the end of the tunnel is oh man...what a feeling.  So...36 or 44 days.  I cannot wait!!!!!
