Short post tonight – I’m exhausted. I decided on a whim to take a spin class today. I haven’t taken one in over 4 years, but today was a rare instance where I did not have the kids and was at the gym while one was taking place. I just went in, forgoing my usual cardio. I felt really good and it was an awesome class…until 2:00 pm this afternoon when I finally sat down. Big mistake, because after that I did not want to sit down. I still feel pretty good, like good sore, but I am just beat.
We had some good news from Andy – I finally heard from him after almost a week, and he is safe and sound (as safe as you can be in a combat zone, I guess). His return date was moved back up, so he will be home sooner than planned! He will be back to us in late June instead of July. He and I were both so happy about this, and the extra shot of good news has put a little extra spring in my step. The end is in sight! We have not told the girls yet. We are going to surprise them with their dad’s return, and I cannot wait to see their reaction. This deployment has seemed eternal at times, and as I have said many times, they never get easier. He is almost back with us!
June is extra busy too, which is only going to help make the time go quicker. I am off to dreamland, but I wanted to share our sliver of good news with all of you. Hurray for changes in itineraries, right? Good night all!
