Countdown Has Begun

Today Pat officially signs in to Ft. Campbell. I guess this means that the countdown to the next deployment has now begun. I have a feeling that this deployment is going to be drastically different than the last one for me. I'm sure it will be a time of personal growth and development, but with the exception of Ryan it might be slightly more lonely for me. I have yet to meet anyone here in Clarksville. I really want to spend the next few weeks enjoying having Pat around and watching my family together because those cherished memories will help me get through the next year.

On another note, we brought Abbey back to the vet today because she still isn't acting like herself. The vet really doesn't have a clue, and I don't blame them because she is having such odd symptoms. They did say that maybe she should be put on doggie anti-depressants. Yes, they were seriously suggesting that she is depressed....they obviously don't know Abbey very well. Thankfully they didn't charge us for this re-check visit. I am also going to change her diet so hopefully that will help Abbey get back to normal.

One thing is for sure: having 3 dogs and a baby will definitely keep me busy while Pat is gone.

Shelly I know where you are coming from, and I promise you that you won't be alone for this deployment. Porter and I will come out and visit you even if Joe is here. And, we are always a phone call away, and I love listening to venting :)

Thanks Robyn. Maybe after Pat leaves and Ryan is a little older I'll be able to come visit you wherever you are then.

I hope so!! Maybe we will get freakishly stationed in Hawaii, and you both can come and visit and we will sip umbrella drinks on the beach ;) One can dream, right??
