Can you believe it???

 One year ago my hubby left for Iraq.  My heart was broken.  I was a mess.  I started taking zoloft, continued therapy, took care of myself.  Made new friends, continued with old friends.  Single parenting 2 boys who are doing great in school and out of school (I can hear my 12 year old practicing his guitar as I type.  I have fallen more in love with my husband, and can't wait for his return.  Everyday I face the anxiety monster and his friends the what - ifs and I should haves every day.  And 9 times out of 10 I win.  The off times are just that - an off time.  Not the end of the world.  Just a crappy feeling.

I am volunteering like crazy and I feel my creativity is at an all time high.  So many ideas - and I have the opportunity and the skills to make them happen!

90 days or less until he comes home.  I started Weight Watchers yesterday.   

With him leaving last year, I was so afraid to go anywhere or do anything.  All I did was to and from school for the kids, worked out and cleaned.  So I was thinner, richer, and living in an immaculate house.  Now thanks to zoloft and therapy, I weigh about 20 pounds more, I am shopping all the time, and my house is a mess.   So now that things are more under control anxiety-wise, I want to work on the other areas - organization, exercise, relaxation, making healthy choices, buying what I need, instead of want...

 

Thank all for being here for me this past year - home stretch now!Wink

Wow. I can't belive how fast time goes. I remember when you first found out that your husband would be leaving. You didn't know how you would even get through the days. And now a year has passed! Good for you! You stood up and took charge for your family.

I love that you said you are more in love with him now. That is just wonderful. ;)

You have almost made it. I think it's awesome that you have the safe return of your husband to look forward to. You know, I recently read old letters that my grandfather wrote home during WW 2 - he was gone for 2 or 3 years, and the romance and love toward his wife and children at home was just beautiful. Keep up the great work!
