Bye Bye Bryce...Hello Texas!!

Bryce left for his deployment on Saturday. It was horrible. Actually, horrible is an understatement. It was devastating!! I dropped him off at about 5am. It was the saddest goodbye ever! I hope I will NEVER have to say goodbye for 6 months ever again!! I don't know how people do it for 15 months! wow!

After I dropped him off, I went back home and went to bed. Coming home was the second saddest part. Walking in the house knowing I am now going to be alone for 6 months was horrible. I managed to sleep until noon...not normal! When I got up, I cleaned some of the house, packed some and then went to my really good friends house (Kristie). She fed me dinner and then I stayed the night with her. She is so sweet...she didn't want me to be alone the first night Bryce left. Thank the Lord for her. If I had to sleep in my own house alone that night, I probably would have cried myself to sleep.

The next day, I came home and wasn't feeling good. I was kind of lazy. Took a shower and packed some more and then headed over to Kristie's again. She made some AWESOME fried chicken with green beans, corn, biscuits, and mashed potatoes. YUM! It was sooo good!! Then I came home and went to bed.

Today I have had run a bunch of errands before I head out to Texas in the morning! WOO HOO!!! I am SOO excited!!! I am going over to Kristie's again tonight for dinner. She has really been taking care of me!! :) I have to be at the airport at 7am and then I fly out at 11am. I should be in Texas by 8:30pm but with the time change, it will feel like 3am for me! I am going to be pooped!!

The next time you hear from me, I will be Texas bound!!!!!

Goodbye's are SO hard! I remember my husbands first deployment, I cried the entire drive home, I was a mess! One good thing about the Military is the wonderful friends you make!

Safe travels!
