Neglectful Blogger.

Yes, I have been a neglectful blogger lately. I do apologize to those who were waiting with baited breath for my next entry…sarcasm of course! It has been a hectic couple of weeks. My husband has his pre-deployment leave last week and we went to Las Vegas for some grown up R&R. We had a fantastic time…spent too much money and got much too drunk! By the time the last day of our vacation rolled around we were begging to get on the flight back home.

Joe leaves soon. VERY soon. I am an emotional wreck. My kids are emotional wrecks. We found out a few weeks ago that his platoon was sending him to a week-long training course for a week. Of course they scheduled it for the week before he leaves for his 8 month-long deployment. So if we get technical, I have 4 more days with my husband. My oldest son Scott is so mad at me. Since Joe left for training a few days ago, he has been accusing me of “making daddy leave because I am so mean.” He thinks that his daddy doesn’t want to be his daddy anymore.

We are trying to be honest and open with the kids, letting them know that their dad is leaving for a while but he still loves them…all that song and dance. But my son Scott is so sensitive, he thinks he did something wrong. My heart breaks for him. As much as I tell him that Joe still loves him, it doesn’t make any difference to him. This is just something that our family is going to have to power through, and we will. We have gone through so much already, and I think it only makes us stronger.

So as you can see, I have been slightly preoccupied the past few weeks. Things will pick back up after we get this show on the road next week! Oh- and please forgive the serious, slightly whiney nature of this post. I feel strangely comfortable whining to complete strangers rather than my family. They don’t need any more whining 🙂
