I have been missing my honeybee a lot this weekend.  I don’t know whether it’s because I have settled in a bit more and am not quite so busy, or just because its been almost 2 months since I have seen him and it’s hitting me.  Until now, I think the longest we have gone without seeing each other is exactly 2 months, so I think knowing it will be another 6 months is making me truly understand how tough this deployment is going to be.  That being said, I am not worried in the least about our relationship.  He is such a wonderful man and I couldn’t be luckier to have him.  Some of the ladies I work with and I were talking about the “habits” of many military men (read: cheating, abuse, etc) and it made me realize how glad I am that I found such an amazing, loyal, trustworthy guy.  PLEASE do not get any ideas that I think all military men (and/or women, and/or significant others) are unfaithful or dishonest, obviously I would not be dating a man in the military if I thought that.  I have just heard SOO many crazy stories of things that happen while servicepeople are deployed (I say PEOPLE because men AND women do things!).  I think it takes a VERY strong man and woman to make it in this day and age in the relationship world, let alone in the military relationship world.  I am glad I have total and complete faith in Brandon and I to come out of this stronger.  {That can also be said for my sister and her soon-to-be hubby…they are perfect together and will be fine in their military relationship as well!}

As I mentioned, my apartment is finally starting to come together…by no means is it complete (there is still a mess in the living room), but it is much more organized than it was a few days ago!  I am so proud of myself because in the midst of all this cleaning and organizing, I actually THREW SOME THINGS AWAY!  For those of you that don’t know, I love things.  I keep EVERYTHING and have a very hard time getting rid of things.  But I did it, and it felt great 🙂  Many of the things I am “getting rid of” are actually going to school to be reused somehow in my art classroom, but it counts for getting it out of my apartment!  I am trying to go through clothes to get rid of, but I always have that thought “well what if I get rid of it and want to wear it in a few weeks”…when I know that I most likely won’t….I did drop off a bag of stuff to Goodwill so I guess I did let go of a few things.  As for shoes, Roxie got rid of enough pairs in the last year for me not to feel bad about keeping them all 😉

Of course, I have to update my school year countdown– 5 more days with the kiddos!  This, of course, is the most grueling, chaotic, frustrating, loud, annoying week of the year, but who can blame the kids when the teachers are just as eager {if not more so} to be DONE!  Lots of ARTrageous (aka FUN) days and cleaning days planned!  Last week we had our 3 field days [in the 90+ degree heat…figures, since this week is supposed to be in the high 60s/low 70s] which went over pretty well.  I absolutely LOVE seeing the kids faces and hearing their giggles and comments during these days, which makes it all worthwhile, even when I drop dead on my bed before 8 every night!

Some quotes I love, especially when I am missing my boy:

Good night ❤
