Speaking of deployments, my personal opinion is that it sucks for everyone deployed before Aug. 1 having to stay 15 months. I didn't expect anything different though. I have to admit that it does work out nicely for us that Pat will only be gone for 11 months. I definitely feel for all the families currently going through or getting ready for deployments. The closer it gets the more I dread it. It is agonizing waiting for it to get here when you know that you don't want it to come at all.
Tomorrow is a day off from work for Pat. We're spending it getting things ready for the inevitable. I hope we can manage to find the fun in the everyday tasks we still have to complete.
