Breakdown or Breakthrough

Lately I've found myself on the verge of tears a lot. I'm not upset about anything, but I'm emotional. Songs on the radio, sappy videos on the computer, and even watching my boys at the Christmas parade last weekend are enough to bring the tears to my eyes. I'm not usually this weepy. I cannot decide if I'm nearing a breakdown or a breakthrough.

What I really think it may be is my way of preparing to let it all out when my best friend comes home. It's been a long, and sometimes hard, 6 months of the deployment already. While I have my family to support me from a distance, it still gets lonely and sometimes hard being alone here. I feel like I haven't been able to really share what things have been like back here, and I would love to hear what things are like for him over there.

I wonder if I'm going to end up a crying fool when he finally is here. At least I'll be able to get a hug in the strong arms I miss so much.

It's just a handful of days until he arrives home, although the unknown time of travel is enough to drive me nuts. I'm changing my mind a lot about what to wear to pick him up from the airport. I guess it will depend on the day and weather for what I end up wearing. But maybe that will be another post for another time. For now, I just wait, clean, and stay busy.

I am going through the same thing right now. It's like all the emotions that have been pent up are just itching to get out. We have to hold it together while they are gone and knowing that they will be here soon is enough to make anyone feel crazy. It's a good kind of crazy though.

I think my second biggest dilemna is deciding what to wear. What types of things are you considering? Since I am picking him up at an airport I won't have to worry about freezing my butt off outside, but I still don't know if I want to go the dress route. I'm really not a dress type of girl. Maybe we can help each other decide. haha.
