Half Year Mark
Today is 6 months since Pat left. I am so proud of myself for making it 6 months, especially since this deployment I am completely alone without any local support network. I think half a year like that is quite an accomplishment. Ryan has changed so much during these past 6 months. He's grown into quite a little boy. I know his Daddy is proud. I'm a little bit surprised that I've done a decent job as a single parent to my first child. Only a few more months and we'll all be together again. It's going to be so exciting to see Pat and Ryan interact. I hope the rest of this year flies by. Six months down....only a few more to go. Yay!
