Packages

TS is in Iraq. He'll be there for quite a bit longer. It's hard (for him, of course) and I miss him everyday. I'm lucky, he's able to call relatively often and is in a safe place (as safe as can be). All of this makes it easier (for me) but I still know (and never forget) he's in a war zone and working really hard.
I send him packages almost every week. I love doing it and it helps me feel closer to him. When I buy things I'm always thinking about him. It's often silly things or snacks I know he'll like, crackers, gum, DVDs, drink mix, etc. I'm happy to think of the smile on his face when he opens the box and sees what I've picked. I always write a note in a card in the box too. I want him to be happy and make his life easier. There's always extra stuff in there too for the guys he works with, they all need all help.
I just sent a box today and it should be there next week. This weekend I'll start picking new items for the next package. I'll keep this process going until he comes ago.

Mini break


I'm back from a great weekend in Ocean City, Maryland. It was warm, sunny and relaxing. I didn't do anything really other than sit in the sun and have several beverages. It was really great to get away from everyday life. I missed him (and wanted him there) but I took many photos, so he could see what it's all about.

Everything is going well on the adoption side, as well. There isn't any news to report and I'm patiently waiting. There's still quite a bit for me to do with her room and I've set the 4th of July is my goal date for completion. I'm going to paint next weekend.

Analeise

I'm waiting for Analeise. She waiting for me in Taiwan and can't be here soon enough. I haven't even met her and I couldn't love her more. I love just the idea of her and limitless possibilities she'll have. It took me quite a time to get to this point (wanting to have a child) and now I can't wait. It's scary, exciting and will be a huge life change but I'm so ready.
