The minstrel boy to the war has gone

After two terribly short weeks at home, hubs has started his journey back to the sandbox. These next few days are always the worst for re-adjusting back to life as a military spouse with a deployed partner. Just when you get used to sharing your home and life with someone again, they have to go back to the mission. Tour breaks pass far too quickly.

I will have to get used to bowing to the wishes of my feline and canine overlords once again. Having someone else to get up in the middle of the night to let the dogs out was kinda nice…

And of course it’s snowing again. For the two weeks hubs was home the weather was nicer and it didn’t snow. The morning he left it began to snow. I spent a chunk of my day shoveling. I’m back to pretending that pushing snow around and lifting a shovel in minus gawd awful temperatures is exercise I enjoy.

On the bright side the basement has been mostly fixed (post flood). I have a new floor and desk but we didn’t get around to putting up new baseboards in my office. I’m sure I’ll survive without them.

All the light fixtures have been fixed and hubs wired new lights in the laundry room so it’s easier to see when doing laundry.

New curtains have been hung in the bedroom and all that jazz.

Too bad we forgot about fixing the weather stripping at the doors. Guess we need something to do once he comes home.

Tonight I whine. Tomorrow I begin prepping for my exams. Think I’ll keep my phone off the hook until exams are over (late next week) so I can study uninterrupted.
