If these are the thoughts going through my head... which believe me, they are... I can't even begin to imagine the thoughts going through his head.
The homecoming sign is waiting to be hung. The kitchen cupboard is stocked with all his favorite snacks. New bottles of shampoo and body wash are lined up neatly in the shower, new razors and toothpaste and a toothbrush on the shelf by the sink. I picked up all his favorite magazines and set them on the coffee table. I bought all the ingredients to make his favorite cookies. I'm washing all his clothes to freshen them up.
It doesn't seem real. Will this really be over soon? Will he really be home again? Has anyone else ever felt this way, or am I just nuts? I wasn't like this the first deployment... I was sane, I think. More sane than I am now. Oh, my.
It's going to be an interesting ride!
